    Default Please help me decide....

    'k, today I went to "The Fatted Calf Charcuterie" in Napa, CA:

    http://fattedcalf.com/

    and picked up 2 pork porterhouse steaks, each about 1" thick and 14
    oz. I'll have them for dinner tomorrow.

    Anybody got a suggestion re: how to cook 'em?

    Here's what I would do:
    Sprinkle with some dried basil, dried parsley, very small amount of garlic
    powder, cracked pepper and kosher salt. Press this into the meat then add
    some worchestershire sauce. Flip them over and repeat this. Let it sit for
    up to an hour to come to room temperature or close to it.

    Then either put on grill or if using a frying pan, hot sear them for about
    60 seconds on each side, then turn down the burner and cook until desired
    doneness. I prefer medium-rare.

    Cook some onions and white mushrooms along with this to put on top or the
    side.

    Note: I used to cook steaks plain but this recipe comes from my daughter's
    old boyfriend who was head-chef at an upscale local restaurant. Once I tried
    it, I've always stuck with it. Done right, the spices don't overwhelm the
    steak flavor, it just takes it to the "next level."

    HTH.
