Rosemary-Grilled New York Strip Steak
(with caramelized red onion jam)
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh rosemary
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 tablespoon kosher salt
4 boneless loin shell steaks (New York Strip steaks)
The Onion Jam:
1 head garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 medium red onions, peeled and thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
For the Jam: Heat the oven to 300F; slice the top quarter off the head of garlic, set in on a sheet of foil and sprinkle with one tablespoon of the olive oil, salt and pepper, then wrap and braise until soft (about 1 hour). Set it aside to cool. On the stove top, heat the rest of the olive oil in a large saute pan or skillet over medium heat until it is hot but not smoking. Add the onions, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and saute until the onions start to soften (about 5 minutes). Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook, stirring often, until the onions are well caramelized (20-30 mins). Making sure the garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze the flesh from each clove. Add the garlic to the onions, stirring to incorporate, then add the vinegar and brown sugar and mix well. Continue cooking until the mixture is sticky and thickens slightly (about 2 minutes more). Remove from the heat and set aside.
While the onions are cooking, build a multilevel fire in your grill. When the coals are all ignited, the flames have died down, and the temperature is hot, you’re ready to cook.
Combine the rosemary, olive oil, garlic clove, and salt and pepper in a small sturdy bowl and mash to a paste. Dry the steaks with paper towels, and rub them all over with the seasoning paste. Put the steaks on the grill over the hottest coals and sear them well (4-5 mins per side). Slide the steaks over the cool part of the grilll and continue to cook, turning once, until they are done to your liking (10-12 mins more for rare). To check doneness, poke the steaks with your finger to test firmness; if you’re unsure make a small cut in the tickets teak – it should be just slightly less done than you like it. Transfer the steaks to a serving paller and cover loosely with foil. Let them rest for 5-10 mins before serving with the onion jam.
