steps for marinating and grilling strip steaks and vegetable kebabs.

How To Make Grilled Chermoula Marinated Strip Steaks:

  1. Start with a homemade marinade – chermoula sauce.  I shared the chermoula recipe in this post.
  2. Use just a quarter cup of the sauce and thin it with some extra virgin olive oil to make a delicious New York strip marinade.
  3. Marinate the strip steaks in this smoky spice blend for about an hour before grilling.
  4. Heat the grill to a medium high heat, about 450° – 500°.
  5. Grill the steaks for 4-5 minutes on one side without fussing with themavoid poking, prodding, moving or adjusting the meat… just let it be.
  6. Flip the steaks and continue cooking until you reach your desired doneness.
  • MEDIUM RARE:  3-5 minutes; Internal Temperature 135°.
  • MEDIUM: 5-7 minutes; Internal Temperature 140°.
  • MEDIUM WELL: 8-10; Internal Temperature 150°.
  • Remove the steaks from the grill and let rest for 5-7 minutes so that the juices can redistribute throughout the meat.

Let’s Talk About “Doneness”

Everyone has their optimum preparation for steaks, but unless you’ve mastered the “touch test,” I always opt for a sure thing. An Instant Read Thermometer. My pick is the Thermapen One {shameless affiliate link herewith}

Why I Love My Thermapen One

  • pastedGraphic.pngThe Thermapen takes an accurate temperature reading in 2-3 seconds.
  • It has a backlight for nighttime grilling.
  • Thermapen naturally goes into sleep mode when you set it down.
  • It also wakes up when you pick it up.
  • This digital thermometer folds for compact storage.
  • It takes a AAA battery, not those hard-to-find button-style batteries.

Don’t those steaks look amazing? I wish I had smell-a-vision so you could understand just how tummy rumbling this meal is.  Scott grilled the ready-made vegetable kebabs alongside the steaks so they came out at the same time.   By the way, that chermoula sauce is excellent on grilled summer vegetables too!

Spoon the leftover sauce into a bowl and serve it alongside your platter of grilled chermoula marinated strip steaks and grilled vegetables so that everyone can help themselves to this bold, flavorful blend.

    What a nice, simple recipe to kick off grilling season! I love chermoula sauce, especially with seafood, and I can imagine that it’s delish with steak as well. The Fresh Market is great. I always have a positive shopping experience there.

    1. Have you tried their Crispie cookies, Amanda? So delish!

  2. Just beautiful! I just recently heard about Fresh Market, but there isn’t one close to me. Oh well….

    1. I think every place has some type of specialty market … cross your fingers and maybe you’ll get one soon!

  3. 5 stars
    That really is a nice market. The vegetables are lined up so neat. I want to pick one of everything. It is wonderful that they pre-make those veggie skewers too. It’s so helpful!

    1. I agree Ginny – sometimes convenience foods are the way to go and they have a beautiful variety at The Fresh Market.
