Grilled Porterhouse Steak Recipe

I feel silly even asking, but, what were you planning to make for Father’s Day?  If the answer isn’t steak, I think you need to evaluate your food priorities.  If you’re a dad and want a grilled dinner, you want steak.  If you have a dad and want to grill him dinner, he wants steak.  Why are we even discussing this?  We’re wasting time.  Let’s just move on to the recipe.

It’s Father’s Day, so go big – go Porterhouse.  It’s my favorite cut.  Oh my how I do love a good porterhouse steak.  It’s easy prep, fun to grill, and so very delicious to eat.

Here’s what I did with this steak:  Rub with olive oil, then sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper, garlic & onion powder, and….the secret ingredient…Celery Salt.  I love this stuff.  It was introduced to me by my father in law, who knows a thing or two about grilling steaks.  It adds outstanding flavor to beef.  Try it and you will like.

I used Kingsford Competition briquettes for optimal searing temperature…with a handful of wood chips of course.  I had my Weber at about 500+ degrees, and seared both sides for 3 – 5 minutes.  You really want it to be medium (internal temp of 140).  Please don’t cook your porterhouse well done.  Every time someone does that, I cry a little.

It doesn’t take much to make a tasty porterhouse.  You don’t want to overpower the natural deliciousness of a porterhouse steak.  I keep it simple, grill it just right, then sit back and enjoy.  Ahhhh, what a treat.

P.S.  Thanks, dad, for everything you’ve done for me.  Happy Father’s Day!
