PORTERHOUSE STEAK

 

1-inch cut Porterhouse steak, about 600 grams

2 tablespoons oil

2-3 cloves garlic, peeled

sprigs of fresh rosemary

2 tablespoons butter

Salt and pepper, to taste

 

1

Prep the steak: pat the meat dry with paper towel. Generously season the meat with salt and pepper.

 

2

Heat pan over high heat and add oil.

 

3

Add the meat only when oil is hot enough and almost reaches smoking point. Sear for 2-2.5 minutes per side (medium rare), depending on the doneness desired.

 

4

Once you have flipped the meat, add butter, garlic and rosemary. Tilt pan and start basting the steak until done. Take out from heat.

 

5

Let the meat rest for another 5-7 minutes before slicing.
