New York Strip Steak with Steamed Broccoli (Phase 2)
5- to 6-oz New York strip steak (shell steak)
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
3 cups broccoli florets
Preheat the broiler with broiler pan in place. Trim excess fat off the steak. Rub both sides with the garlic, salt and pepper. Put the steak on the hot pan and broil to desired doneness, 7 to 15 minutes. (If you want the steak well done without a charred exterior, butterfly the steak or slice the steak in half.)
While the steak is broiling, steam the broccoli. Bring 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil in either a steaming double pan or with a wire steaming tray. Cover and steam for approximately 4 to 6 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork.
Season with sea salt and pepper before serving with the steak.
Note: I like to make an additional strip steak to slice and serve on a salad for the next day’s lunch or dinner.
