Makes 2 Steaks
A porterhouse combines two of the best cuts of steak: a New York Strip and a filet. Other cuts of steak can easily be substituted for the porterhouses in this recipe.
Before You Start
Lining the broiler pan with aluminum foil will ease cleanup. Be sure to pull the steaks out of the refrigerator 45 minutes before cooking and allow to come up to room temperature.
1. Preheat oven to Broil high with a rack at position 5 for 10 minutes.
2. Liberally season both sides of the steaks with kosher salt and black pepper.
3. Place on the broiler pan rack and set in the preheated oven.
4. Broil the steaks for 5 minutes on the first side, flip and broil for an additional 4 minutes for rare, or continue broiling until the desired internal temperature is reached.
