What kind of steak floats your boat the most? My guys are open to every stripe of steak from rib-eyes to sirloins, prepared all kinds of ways, but one of their favorites is a New York Strip Steak, nicely marbled and seared up on the grill.

Grilling steak is one of my all time favorite summer activities. For steak you want a nice, rich flavor, which will come from a combination of soy sauce, Worcestershire and garlic. I like to balance that all out with a little honey for sweetness and caramelization.
