Grilled Porterhouse Steaks

Porterhouse steaks are a cut which have filet on one side and strip steak on the other. The way I like to prepare them is with a little olive oil,sea salt, and pepper on each side. Set your grill up for direct grilling and high heat ( see my article under the Basics category ). For steaks that are about 1 1/4 inches thick, place them on the grill at 10 o’clock,cover, grill for 2 minutes, rotate to 2 o’clock, cover again and grill for another 2 minutes. Next, flip them over and repeat the process. Your steaks should be a nice rare/medium rare. Pull the steaks off the grill and let them rest for about 5-10 minutes. Use this time to clean (scrape) your grill with a good wire brush. As I mentioned in the Basics section, make notes of the time grilled and the results. After a couple of times, you will have perfected grilling porterhouse steaks ! 

Always remember to keep it simple by keeping notes on the cut of meat you used, the time grilled and the results. By keeping it simple and consistent you will be on your way to be the Master of your grill !
