Grilled Garlic-studded New York Steaks
The recipe below was developed for grass-fed beef. Grass-fed meat typically has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids and three to five times the CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than meat from grain-fed animals. It also is high in vitamins E, C and beta-carotene. Because of its lower fat content, it cooks more quickly. Figure on cooking it in about 20 percent less time and at a lower heat.
Combine the oil, salt, lemon zest and pepper. Rub the paste over all the steaks. You may let the steaks marinate in this mixture up to overnight.
With the tip of a paring knife, cut about 6 to 8 slits into the meat and insert a sliver of garlic into each one. Brush each steak with a little olive oil and grill over hot coals or a hot gas grill, or use a grill pan if you have it. (Preheated over medium-high heat.)
Cook the steaks about 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium-rare. The internal temperature will be 130º F for medium-rare.
