Grilled Porterhouse

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Scoutie

Perfect for Father's Day, I can't believe this simple, yet oh so tasty recipe is not already here! Do NOT cook longer than medium, my Mom likes her steak well-done! (No wonder she says she doesn't like steak, it has been reduced to shoe leather! LOL) Time does not include marinading time. Adapted from Fine Cooking - Issue 33.

We used rib eye steaks. I used a bit less of pepper. I used the rosemary and it gave a great taste to the steaks. Next time I'll add chopped garlic to give more flavor. Thanks Scoutie :) Made for 123 hit wonders

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients and rub both sides of the steak with equal amounts of the mixture.
  2. Let marinade for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Set aside and prepare the grill to medium hot (you'll be able to hold your hand just above the grate for 2 seconds).
  4. Drain liquid from the steak and rub both sides of the steak with salt.
  5. Grill the steak on one side for 7 to 10 minutes, keeping the smaller tenderloin section over a less intense heat.
  6. If there are flare-ups, move the steak to another part of the grill that is cooler.
  7. Turn the steak and grill for another 6 to 7 minutes. It should be rare to medium rare at this point.
  8. Medium is about 10 minutes per side.
  9. Transfer the steak to a wooden carving platter and let it rest for 3 to 4 minutes so the meat relaxes and the juices redistribute.
  10. Serve it whole or else carve it, slice it, and reassemble it, saving the juices to pour over it.
  11. Fight over who gets which piece of the steak. LOL.
