Easy Grilled New York Strip Steak

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


  • 2 8-ounce New York Strip Steaks, 1 inch thick
  • Sea salt or kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Remove steaks from packaging and dry with paper towels.
  2. Lightly season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Place steaks on hot preheated grill (450°F to 650°F) for approximately 3 minutes per side to make sear marks. (Use tongs to turn.)
  5. Depending on thickness of steaks and desired doneness, you may also rotate the steaks about 90 degrees to form cross-hatch sear marks.
  6. Turn the heat down to medium and move steaks away from the direct heat, either to the warming rack or to the other side of the grill so the steak can finish cooking.
  7. Check for doneness using an instant-read thermometer (130°F for rare doneness).
  8. Remove steaks from grill and allow to rest for at least 2 minutes on a warm plate or platter. (The steaks will continue to cook while resting and raise to approximately 140°F for medium rare.)

  1. Instead of salt and pepper, rub the steak with a liberal amount of Rub© and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. The Rub© makes a delicious and spicy crust when seared. I like mine medium rare. YUM!

    1. WHAT!!!!!!! Rub? You just ruined a perfect steak!!!! Steak should be enjoyed at its fullest no rub ketchup BBQ sauce or steak sauce!!!!! ENJOY!!!!! YESSIR!!!!!

      1. Ridiculous. We make our own rub and it’s amazing. All steakhouses have their own seasonings too.

    1. With the lid closed, the grill is like an oven; with the lid open, it is like a stove. For a good sear, start with the grill on high heat, sear both sides with the lid open. Then turn the heat down to a medium and finish the steak away from the direct heat with the lid closed.

  3. First time trying to grill a NY strip. I’m using a 3 zone gas grill. Just want to make sure I’m doing it right. I sear the steaks over the flame first. Then move the steaks to the opposite side of the grill where the zone is not turned on correct? While turning the other 2 zones down to a medium heat?

    1. Hi Mary, You want to let the steaks cook until an instant-read thermometer reads at least 130F for rare doneness up to 160F for well done.
