Preparing Porterhouse Steaks
The best cooking method for this steak is direct heat grilling.
If you like your steak really rare, grill it over high heat. If you like it medium rare, you will need to lower the heat or move the steak to a cooler section of the grill.
Rare meat will take 7-10 minutes per side and when using an instant read thermometer in the side of the steak (do not touch the bone) will read 120° - 130°.
Preparing Kansas City Strips
Coat your grill with non-stick kitchen spray before you begin to keep your steaks from sticking to the grill. Preheat your grill before placing your steaks on.
You should only turn your steaks once on the grill. Turning more often will cause the steaks to dry out.
Internal temperature for rare is 120° - 130°, medium rare is 130° - 140° and for medium is 140° - 150. You can also judge the doneness of steak by pressing the meat with your finger. Very rare meat offers little resistance, medium rare is slightly springy, and medium is firm but still springy, whereas well-done is quite firm.
The marbling and thickness of a ribeye, make it the perfect steak for grilling.
High heat and quick cooking is the best way to cook these tender steaks.

Molino Barbera d'Alba Ausario Superiore
Barbera is an incredibly food-friendly wine, as its high acidity and low tannins makes it a natural with tomato-based sauces and meatless meals. The Molino Ausario will be terrific with everything from pasta dishes to gourmet pizzas to sharply flavored red meat dishes, such as steak tartare that might overwhelm softer reds.
There’s both heft and suppleness to this juicy red, which delivers loads of energetic black plum, tea and black cherry flavors on a complex, medium-bodied palate. Bright and bold.
Kaapzicht Pinotage, Stellenbosch
Complement this intense red’s savory side with equally intense, savory food. Stews, braises and roasts of game and red meats make a terrific match, especially if they’re complemented with a rich sauce or earthy ingredients such as mushrooms or root vegetables.
There’s an earthy, lightly funky edge to this Pinotage’s ripe black fruit aromas that’s characteristic of the grape. On the palate, the wine is ripe and dense, with loads of smoky, brooding black plum and blackcurrant fruit flavors and a savory, leather-like note.
Chateau Rocher Corbin Montagne Saint-Emilion
Lamb and beef in many guises make classic accompaniments to red Bordeaux, though this Merlot-based red’s ripe tannins mean that it will be equally delicious with duck, pork and hearty chicken or turkey dishes. Accents such as fresh herbs, black olives and mushrooms will echo the wine’s savory side.
A rich core of blackberry fruit defines this powerful red. It shows the warmth of the 2009 vintage in its full body, velvety tannins and deep black and red fruit flavors; dusty mineral and clove notes inflect the finish.
