On the Grill: Basil/Parmesan Crusted New York Strips

Yum. TheFoodCritic strikes again. These are the perfect blend of steak, basil, parmesan. The only thing that would have been great to add was some roasted tomatoes on the side.

This was really easy to throw together (apparently), and is a simple way to really dress up plain steaks and take them to the next level. We'll serve these for company, for sure.

Hope you give these a shot! Might be good for a date-night in? (Wait til the kids are in bed though, you probably won't want to share with them!)


  • 2 New York Strip steaks
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped basil leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium garlic cloves, minced

  1. Lightly brush the steaks with the oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat
  3. Combine the cheese and the basil, set aside.
  4. Sear the steaks over direct high heat, with the lid closed, for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the steaks over and generously coat the top of each with the cheese and basil mixture. Close the lid and continue grilling until the cheese is melted and the steaks are cooked to your desired doneness.
  5. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter and garlic and heat until the butter is melted and the garlic is sizzling, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Spoon over the steaks and serve right away.
