Marinated Steak: Do I rub off the marinade and then cook to sear? OR Do I just stick it in the pan?

This may be the most novice question ever but I am curious what I am supposed to do.

I just marinated some steak and Korean BBQ short ribs and plan to cook them on the stove top. I like it to be medium rare with a crusty outside. But then I remembered that Julia Childs once said that you can't brown wet meat.

So, after you have marinated steak overnight:

Do you rub off all the marinade and then pan sear it?

Rub off some of the marinade and then pan sear it?

Rub off every single bit of the marinade, wipe the meat, and then pan sear it?

Thanks a lot!
