Perfectly cooked New York Strip Steak is so easy to do at home! All you need is fresh herbs, garlic and butter to have the most juicy, tender steak dinner ever!



  • 2 New York Strip Steaks, approximately 1 pound each (see note)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 bunch fresh rosemary
  • 1 bunch fresh thyme
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper


  1. Take the steaks out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking to let come to room temperature.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Season the steaks generously on both sides with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the butter and oil to a heavy bottomed, oven-proof skillet. Once the butter has melted add the rosemary and thyme, swirling around in the butter and oil. When the butter starts to brown slightly, add the steaks and let sear for 3 minutes per side until nicely browned. You can also sear the fat strip if you want the fat to render down.
  5. Add the garlic cloves and place the skillet in the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until desired temperature is reached. We like our steaks medium rare so we take them out at 130 degrees.
  6. Remove the steak from the skillet and place on a board or plate. Cover with foil for 5 minutes to let the steak rest.
  7. Slice the steak into thick pieces and serve with the garlic herb butter from the skillet drizzled on top.

Recipe Notes

The best way to know when your steak is done to the right temperature is by using a meat thermometer.  These temperatures are for when you take the meat out of the oven, then it will rise a few more degrees during the resting period.

  • Rare: 125° F
  • Medium Rare: 135° F
  • Medium: 145° F
  • Medium Well: 150° F
  • Well Done: 160° F

To reheat leftover steak: Place in a low oven (250 degrees) until warmed through. Sliced steak can also be reheated in the microwave in 30 second intervals, just until warmed through.

Strip Steaks are anywhere between 10 ounces and 1 1/2 pounds. Any size will work with this recipe (you’ll need to adjust cooking times for larger steaks), but you’ll need at least two 12 -14 ounce steaks to feed four people.
