Directions for Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Herb Butter
- Use a small bowl to blend your olive oil, salt, coriander, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, oregano and garlic.
- Rub each side of your steaks with this seasoning mix and allow them to sit at room temperature for half an hour.
- Set your grill to medium-high and grill the steaks until they hit an internal temperature of 125°F. This should take around 8-10 minutes per side.
- Remove the steaks from the grill, top them with 1-2 tbsp of your herbal butter and allow them to rest 5-10 minutes.
- Cut the meat from each side of the bone, making sure to slice across the grain.
- Arrange your meat around the bone and top each steak with even more herbal butter.
