How to Pan Fry the Perfect Porterhouse Steak!
Porterhouse Steak cooked the same way as your favorite steakhouse makes it! Before we get started you will need a cast iron skillet…
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
2 Pound Porterhouse Steak Bone-in
1 Teaspoon Canola Oil
1 stick butter, sliced
Heat up a cast Iron Skillet with about 1 teaspoon of Canola Oil in it over a medium high heat. Generously season both sides of your porterhouse with salt.
Once the oil and pan is hot, place your porterhouse in the pan and let cook 4 minutes on one side (don't touch it just let it cook). Remove the steak from the pan, and place on a cutting board, seared side up.
Let the steak rest 10 minutes. Then, cut the steak off the bone in 2 pieces (the strip on one side and the filet on the other). Cut straight down into thick slices perpendicular to the bone.
Place the bone back in the cast iron pan, and reassemble the sliced meat alongside it (seared side up). Top the meat with your slices butter and place under the broiler for 5 minutes (for rare). *Since the steak is already sliced, you can check the doneness of your meat easily and cook it for as long as you want.
Serve the steak directly from the pan and spoon the butter pan sauce on top.
