New York strip is a tender cut of steak so you do not want to marinade it for a long time or overnight because the marinade would actually toughen the steak up. If you are using a quality steak like New York strip, the best steak marinade is something with good quality ingredients to complement the steak flavor and something that will work if you only marinate the steak for a couple of hours.
Acidic ingredients in steak marinades work to break down the tough fibers, and that is why you might see a skirt or flank steak marinade recipe telling you to soak the steak for 24 hours. That would destroy the texture of a New York strip completely, so do not be tempted to seek a more intense flavor by doing that, because it does not work with tender cuts of meat.
The following steak marinade recipe blends Italian seasoning, basil, garlic and more for a delicious Italian inspired flavor and Worcestershire sauce to bring out the wonderfully rich steak taste. If you are a fan of New York strip, then why not make this flavorful marinade to add to the meaty flavor? You are sure to find the finished steak delicious.
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
½ cup olive oil
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon dried basil
4 New York strip steaks, 8 oz each
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 tablespoons steak seasoning
Combine everything in a shallow glass dish.
Pierce the steaks all over with a fork and put them in the marinade.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
Grill over a high heat until done.
Serve the finished steak with a handful of fries and some salad, as you can see in the picture, or with any side dishes you personally prefer. Try a baked potato with sour cream and some onion rings, or even rice and a couple of types of steamed veggies. The steak can be grilled (and it should be, for the best result!) or broiled.
