If you are a wolf, or maybe a shark one could consider this meal to be balanced. I only had room on my plate for a few bites of potatoes and 7 green beans.
Note the weight on the package…
there are two steaks per pack…
So here’s the deal… Sunday was my birthday, and I still needed to try out some of the steaks from our latest batch. We did some extra-special aging stuff (22 days dry aging), and I wanted to see how everything turned out. Naturally I grabbed the biggest package I could get my hot little hands on. The porterhouse is one of my all-time favorites because it is actually two really good steaks rolled into one. On the small side is the filet mignon, and the larger side is actually the NY strip. You really can’t go wrong.
The picture doesn’t really do it justice. I could barely fit this thing in the frying pan. Just to give you an idea… 33+ ounces. The steak was 1-1/4″ thick. I rubbed it down with olive oil, salt and pepper and cooked it medium rare. After cooking for about 8 minutes (2 min increments per side) on medium heat, I put the steak on a plate and covered it with tin-foil so that it could rest for about 10 min.
I don’t want to break my arm patting myself on the back, but suffice it to say, this was everything that a good steak should be… rich, flavorful, tender, and juicy. Happy birthday to me!!
