An Easy, Delicious Marinade for New York Strip Steak

Lean, tender NY Strip is a classic favorite–and though it’s perfectly delicious seasoned with just salt and pepper, a good marinade can take it to a whole other level. 

Here’s a couldn’t-be-simpler marinade that comes together in seconds and uses items you probably have in your pantry. It will make your NY Strip sing, whether you grill it, broil it or pan-sear it. 

Try this marinade on flank, hanger or skirt steak, too–or on pork tenderloin.
