Introducing the Perfect Porterhouse recipe cooked over white hot Cowboy Charcoal. This massive chunk of meat if full of salt and tang because of its special marinade! Soy sauce, lemon juice, sesame seeds and more are thrown into a bag where you will marinate this steak for 20 minutes. This is enough time for the meat to soak up all of the flavor without becoming too soft. Throw it over the fire and you will get an amazing char. This is such a good steak that the serving size is just for one! No need to share!
