    My DD and SIL had their honeymoon in Italy in December. For a gift to her father, she sent 2 wonderful porterhouse steaks and a fabulous menu complete with recipes so that we could share Italy with them.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Remove the steaks from the refrigerator, rinse under water, pat dry with paper towels and allow to sit at room temperature 30 minutes before cooking.
    2. 2
      Put the fatback, garlic and rosemary into a food processor and blend until it is the consistency of toothpaste.
    3. 3
      Rub the fat mixture evenly over the meat and season with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper.
    4. 4
      Use a hot, clean, oiled grill and grill the steaks for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side for medium rare.
    5. 5
      The fillet will cook a little faster than the strip loin. Move the steaks frequently, approximately every 2 minutes or so, for even cooking and a crispy exterior.
    6. 6
      When the steaks are cooked, take them off the grill and allow to rest for 5 to 7 minutes. The resting allows the blood to circulate and distributes the juices evenly.
    7. 7
      Serve and enjoy!

      I made this with a NY strip steak (thin sliced). I just had to adjust the cooking time. The flavors complement the steak perfectly. Goes with everything. Made for ZWT 7 Italy.

      An outstanding recipe made on the grill. I cut back on the fatback to 6 oz but it still made a decent paste. Oh the garlic cloves!! Wonderful on the steaks!! Made for ZWT 4 Fancy Feinschmeckers
