This is nice and simple strip steak seasoned with a garlic and oregano wet rub. This recipe would go well with any grilled vegetables, whipped mashed potatoes, and perhaps some grill shrimp or lobsters for surf and turf option.  


  • 4 strip steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL salt
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL black pepper, ground

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine minced garlic, olive oil, and dried oregano in a bowl.  Place steaks on a large plate and coat well on both sides with mixture.  Cover lightly with plastic and place in refrigerator for 2 hours.  Remove from fridge 30 minutes before going onto the grill. This will help the meat come up to temperature before coming into contact with heat.

  2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat

  3. Remove plastic wrap from steaks and season both sides of meat with salt and black pepper. 

  4. Place steaks on the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, depending on thickness and desired doneness.  Once cooked to preference, remove from heat and set onto a cutting board.  Lightly tent with aluminum foil. Do not wrap tightly.  Let steaks rest for 7-10 minutes.  Slice and serve or serve steaks whole with your favorite side dishes.
