    ElaineAnn's Note:

    If you are a single diner like me, half the steak will serve for dinner, the other half can be used the next day for a great Philly Cheese steak (slice and reheat with shredded Swiss cheese and serve on a roll with fried onions and peppers).

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place steak in a resealable plastic bag.
    2. 2
      Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, pepper, and olive oil. Pour into bag with steak, making sure to coat both sides. Seal bag (get as much air out of the bag as possible).
    3. 3
      Let bag sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, turning several times.
    4. 4
      Heat a large heavy skillet, add butter when it is very hot. Add steak to skillet and cook over high heat until charred on one side (about 6 minutes). Turn and cook until charred on the other side (about 3 to 5 minutes more).
    5. 5
      The result will be charred on the outside, slightly pink in the middle. Serve immediately on a well heated platter.

      I usually don't attempt to cook or prepare any meal more complex than cereal for breakfast, so the fact that this recipe had only a handful of steps and common ingredients was a huge incentive for me. I used our gas oven's broiler because we don't have an iron skillet (plus the smoke alarm would have sounded throughout our apartment building!) and it turned out AMAZING!! I wish mine had as much char as the picture...maybe I'll add a little more brown sugar next time...and by next time, I mean tomorrow. The other porterhouse is thawing in the fridge! THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE!!

      I was amazed! Love steak, and really love it grilled. But this was perfect on a cold rainy night, and tasted fabulous... my meat was nice and pink/red after cooking for a little less than the recommended cooking times. But I don't like overdone steaks! Used a very large T-bone...really a porterhouse....perfection. I was absolutely amazed by the wonderful taste.....poured the hot drippings over the steaks to serve. Fabulous!

      I am soo impressed by this recipe. I don't make steak very often, and have failed several times besides. And my husband likes steak so much... So I followed this recipe exactly- and it worked! Yay! Three rooms of our house filled with smoke from the 'charring', and hubby thought I was doing something very wrong- but the taste was so excellent! I believe it's owed to the cook time! Right on the dot, ElaineAnn! Thanks!
