Hot Steak a Flavorful Rosemary Marinated Steak

By Bridger Valley Buffalo @11:05 am

Rosemary Marinated Steak

HOT STEAK

Looking to do something different with your steak? We have just the thing! Rosemary marinated steak is deliciously juicy and flavorful.

What you will need:

  • 1 Buffalo steak of your choice
  • 1 tbsp. dried rosemary
  • 1/2 cup red wine (dry red wine, or a wine of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

You will marinate the steak in sauce for about 2 hours and leave the meat out so all can come to room temperature.

When the steak is finished marinating cook on a grill, hot coals, or pellets whichever you prefer.

To get the perfect “Hot Steak” here are some guidelines you can follow:

  • Preheat grill 5 minutes before you grill the steak.
  • Use long handled tongs to turn steaks on the grill. (A fork will cause all the flavorful juices to escape.)
  • Cooking time is important as you don’t want to overcook your steaks.
    • 1″ thick             Rare: 6-8 minutes                  Medium: 10-12 minutes
    • 1 1/2″ thick       Rare: 10-12 minutes               Medium: 14-18 minutes
    • 2″ thick             Rare: 14-20 minutes              Medium: 20-25 Minutes
