Here at Red Meat Lover we continuously strive to evolve and create a better website and experience for our visitors.  We recently had a new idea to bring the site to life in a different way….

Today, we’re coming out of the kitchen….and on to your screen.

I’m Joey, a founding member of the site, and I drew the short straw for this project….I’ll be the face on your screen.  I’m sorry, you could have done better ….. we all could have.  But, if you follow these easy steps, you will cook a delicious steak.  I promise.

Although we’ve talked about Porterhouse Steak elsewhere on this site, today we’re sharing our first video recipe.  It’s a new segment of the site titled Watch & Learn.

TIPS & TRICKS

This cast iron skillet video recipe shares tips & tricks for cooking Porterhouse Steak, including:

  • What is a Porterhouse Steak (hint: it’s delicious and THAT is all you really need to know!)
  • Cooking steak on the stove
  • How to Skillet Fry a Porterhouse Steak
  • The differences between Porterhouse Steak, Filet Mignon, Strip Steaks, and T-bone (tbone) steak
  • What are the 3 main USDA beef grades – and why they are important!
  • Why steak needs to rest
  • Steak Seasoning –includes a recipe for the “Big Tasty” Steak Rub
  • How long to cook steak – general timing guidelines
  • Gauge steak internal temperature using the feel method
RECIPE
  1. Let the steak rest for not less than 20 – 30 minutes to bring the steak to room temperature
  2. Rub the cast iron skillet with olive oil
  3. Season the steak.  You can really use whatever you want but I recommend powder spices.  Salt & Pepper alone is fine.  If you want something different, try our Big Tasty Steak Rub.
  4. Turn heat on high and let pan get hot…..real hot!  You will know it’s ready when the oil begins to smoke or you can place a drop of water on the pan and it evaporates quickly.
  5. Place steak in pan and let cook 3 – 4 minutes / side depending on thickness and desired temperature.  If the steak is over 1.5″ thick, you will need to use an oven to finish.  See our Filet Mignon in a Cast Iron Skillet recipe for steaks greater than 1.5″ thick.
  6. Once it has reached the desired temperature, remove from skillet and let steak rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Final Step – enjoy ‘ya tasty steak!
