How mouth-watering does this Pan Seared NY Strip Steak topped with a Chive Chimichurri Sauce look!? I absolutely adore this dish because it is so simple, yet such a luxurious treat. This recipe is the definition of steakhouse quality right in the comfort of your own home! Why go out, when you can stay in!?
You can easily pull this 20 minute recipe together and it’s one that you do not want to miss. When you do not feel like firing up the grill, pan searing is the next best thing. I love serving this recipe with steamed white rice and corn on the cob on the side.
Besides a filet mignon, NY strip steaks are one of the best cuts of meat in my opinion. It has such nice marbling throughout with some extra fat along the sides that adds excellent flavor when cooked. Dress it up with some salt and pepper. Then, cook it in butter and top it with a herby, tangy and savory chimichurri sauce brings out the richness of the beef and enhances the taste all in one.
Cooking the steaks to perfection only needs minimal time, which is perfect for someone who is in a time crunch. All you need is 4-5 minutes! But, before this while you prepare the chimichurri sauce, let the steaks sit at room temperature for 20 minutes, then generously season them with salt and pepper. Another important thing to do while cooking these steaks and to maximize the flavor is: spooning the bubbly butter plus juices over them for 1-2 minutes consistently during that cooking time. If you want your steaks to be a little more rare, cook them for less time on each side about 3 minutes and if you want them more well done, cook them longer, more like 6-7 minutes.
