Marinated Grilled Steak

Tonight I deviated from the typical Montreal Steak Seasoning and made my own marinade.  (Serves 2)

Marinated Grilled Steak

  • 2 NY Strip Steaks, or your favorite steak
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • large handfull chopped parsley
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • a few pinches salt and grinds of black pepper

Combine olive oil, parsley, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Chop the garlic finely, then sprinkle a little bit of salt on it and  use the side of the knife to gently crush it into a paste.  Add this to the marinade.  Rub the marinade onto the steaks and allow them to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Preheat and clean off the grill.  Cook the steaks over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium rare.  Let rest 5 minutes before eating.
