  • 2 teaspoons of onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 ½ to 3- pound porterhouse steak
  • 2 sprigs each of fresh rosemary sage and thyme wrapped with butchers twine at the root end.
  • 3 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter


  • In a small bowl mix together the onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and set aside.
  • Brush the olive oil all over the porterhouse steak, then season generously with the spice blend you just made. 
  • Place the steak on a hot grill 450° to 550°) or griddle pan and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side for a rare internal temperature. Add 2 to 3 minutes of cooking time per side for medium-rare internal temperature.
  • Once you flip the steak for the first time begin to baste it by dipping the herbs in the melted butter and brushing the steak with them.
  • Once the steak is done cooking let it rest for 3 to 4 minutes before carving the strip and filet mignon away from the bone and slicing them.
  • Serve warm.
