Garlic balsamic brown sugar steaks - recipe from Salt and Olive

As easy as it is insanely good, this is a recipe we picked up on a trip to Italy and modified to make our taste buds even happier. 

2 tbsp butter
4 tbsp garlic extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup traditional balsamic
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp coarsely ground pepper (malabar or tellicherry)
1/2 tsp sriracha sea salt
1/8 tsp cayenne (or your choice of chili powder)
2 thick New York Strip steaks - or your fav cut

In small sauté pan, melt butter and oil over medium heat. Remove pan from heat, add rest of ingredients and stir until brown sugar has melted. Let cool completely. Pour into a ziplock bag, and ensure ingredients are mixed. Add steaks, ensuring marinade is coating both sides well. Seal baggie, remove air in bag, and pop into fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Make sure steaks are not stacked. Turn bag now and then to evenly marinate steaks.

For rare to medium-rare steaks, heat pan and cook approx. 3 minutes per side or to desired doneness.  Let rest at least 5 minutes before cutting to let juices settle.

    This looks like Christmas Dinner to me! Thanks for your help! I’ll be in for the Balsamic and EVO and the sriracha sea salt! That’s definitely not in my cabinet.
