4 (10-ounce) Certified Angus Beef ® New York Strip steaks
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
3-4 cloves garlic, minced (1 tablespoon)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground Kampot Whole Black Peppercorns (similarly substitute freshly ground black pepper)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
To begin with, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, sesame oil, five-spice powder, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Once you have made the marinade, place New York Strip Steaks in a plastic zipper locking bag, add marinade and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight for a deeper marinade flavor.
Once steaks have marinated, preheat the grill to medium high (450°F). Remove steaks from marinade and pat dry, then grill to desired doneness; about 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare (around 125-130°F internal temperature). Remove steaks from grill and rest for 5 minutes before serving.
