Porterhouses are a steakhouse classic and for good reason! Consisting of part tenderloin and part strip they have a great variety of textures. They just need to be heated through, usually 2 to 4 hours for a single portion or 3 to 6 for a thicker one. Because part of it is tenderloin, they are more sensitive to overcooking than many cuts of beef.
The porterhouse and T-bone cuts are dynamic steaks from the short loin that contains both strip steak and tenderloin, separated by a bone running down the middle. They are a favorite cut for many people because you get buttery tenderloin and flavorful strip all in one package, plus a bone to gnaw on if that's your thing!
Porterhouse and T-bones are very similar, but the porterhouse has a bigger portion of tenderloin than a T-bone does. Most high-end steakhouses serve porterhouse steaks due to the larger tenderloin portion.
The porterhouse is often cut thick and cooked to feed two or more people, making it a great family-style steak. For example, Bistecca alla Fiorentina is a classic Italian preparation with an olive oil and herb rub that is usually cut 2 to 3 inches thick.
Porterhouses and T-bones are tender and just need to be heated through, usually 2 to 4 hours for a single portion or 3 to 6 for a thicker one. Because part of it is tenderloin, they are more sensitive to overcooking than many cuts of beef, so you don't want to let it go too long after it has been heated.
With components of tenderloin and strip, the porterhouse and T-bone can stand up well to sauces.
