Balsamic Marinated NY Strips

Steakhouse dinnerThe key to grilling really good steaks is to leave them alone. They didn’t do anything to you; just let them be. Put them on the grill, and don’t touch them till it’s time to turn. When you take them off the grill, let them rest for a full 10 minutes. No poking, no prodding, no serving after 5 minutes. Just let them rest. I guarantee you’ll get great results every time if you just leave the poor things alone.

Makes 2 steaks (serves 4-6)Steakhouse dinner prep

2 thick cut NY strips—1 ½ inches thick
¼ cup balsamic
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cracked pepper

Marinate steaks in balsamic for a couple of hours, up to 24 hours. Take them out of the fridge about an hour before cooking, remove from marinade and pat steaks dry. Season liberally with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, heat up your grill till it’s very hot. Place steaks on grill, close lid, and DO NOT MOVE the steaks for 4-5 minutes. Turn over and cook for another 4-5 minutes without disturbing. Then remove from grill and tent with foil for 10 minutes.

This should give you medium rare+ steaks every time.
