About porterhouse steak

Typically marketed as a meal for two people, the porterhouse steak is the unquestionable king of steak. This delicious piece of meat gives you the best of both worlds as it's actually two different cuts. It's a combination of the juicy filet mignon with the tender New York strip, also known as the top loin. As a result, you get almost 2 pounds of meat.

The origin of its name is contentious as several cities and restaurants have sought to claim ownership. The earliest reference of this piece of meat dates back to 1814 when Manhattan porter house owner Martin Morrison began serving rather large T-bone steaks. However, some claim Massachusetts proprietor Zachariah B. Porter named the slab of meat, while others state a Georgia hotel called The Porter House coined the phrase.

Regardless of who named this delicious cut of meat, the steak is one of the most flavorful and tender pieces of meat. It's always cooked bone-in, which allows the meat to cook evenly and retain the flavor and moisture. Depending on the dish, a porterhouse steak can be served sliced or whole.
