How to Cook Porterhouse Steak

Porterhouse steaks are a favorite among steak enthusiasts for their tender, juicy meat and flavorful bone. But cooking this cut of beef can be intimidating if you're not familiar with the proper technique. In this blog post, we'll go over step-by-step instructions on how to cook the perfect porterhouse steak.

  1. Choose the right steak: Look for a porterhouse steak that is at least one inch thick, and has good marbling throughout the meat. This will ensure a juicy and flavorful steak.

  2. Season the steak: Generously season both sides of the steak with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. You can also add other spices or herbs, like garlic powder or rosemary, if desired.

  3. Preheat your grill or skillet: Heat your grill or skillet over high heat until it's hot. You want to get a good sear on the steak, so the hotter the better.

  4. Sear the steak: Place the steak on the grill or skillet and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side. Don't move the steak during this time, as you want to create a nice crust on the meat.

  5. Lower the heat and continue cooking: Lower the heat to medium and continue cooking the steak, flipping occasionally, until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak. For medium-rare, aim for a temperature of 130-135°F.

  6. Let the steak rest: Once the steak is cooked to your liking, remove it from the grill or skillet and let it rest for at least 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful steak.

  7. Serve and enjoy: Slice the steak against the grain and serve with your favorite sides, like roasted vegetables or mashed potatoes.

Remember, cooking the perfect porterhouse steak takes practice and patience. Don't be afraid to experiment with different seasonings and cooking techniques to find the method that works best for you. With these tips, you'll be on your way to cooking delicious porterhouse steaks in no time!
