At Swanson Natural, our Porterhouse is a combination of 2 different steaks. The larger cut is the meaty New York Strip and the smaller cut has the buttery tenderness of the Filet Mignon. Porterhouse Steaks are the first cuts taken from the sirloin end of the short loin and therefore, they are the largest cuts. Each Short loin only yields 2 Porterhouse Steaks. The reason for this is that as each Porterhouse is cut from the Short Loin, the Filet narrows. Once the Filet is less that 1 ¼ inches, the Porterhouse becomes a T-bone. If you’re up to it, you can eat our Porterhouse all by yourself, but because of its size, we recommend sharing it with another.

- Layer coals once glowing, we recommend having separate areas of two and three layers of coals.
- Test intensity of heat by holding your hand above the grate. You should only be able to hold your hand over the grate for 2 seconds.
- Let coals continue to heat until the grate is very hot. Additional 3 to 4 minutes.
- Oil grate by moistening a paper towel with vegetable oil, using tongs to hold the towel, rub it all over the grate.
- Place meat on grill over high-heat area, cover the grill. Grill meat for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until deeply brown but not charred.
- Once steak is nicely seared, move to section of grill with low heat, cover the grill and grill-roast for 10-15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches your preferred doneness, see below:
- Very Rare: 110-115 F
- Rare: 120-125 F
- Medium Rare: 125-130 F
- Medium: 130-135 F
- Medium Well: 140-145 F
- Well Done: 150-155 F
Disclaimer: The USDA defines a minimum safe internal temperature of 145 F for steaks, chops, and roasts. At 145 F the meat will be cooked to medium doneness, if you prefer your meat less done follow the guide above.
- Preheat all burners, then adjust so you have one section at full heat, another at moderate heat, and a third with no heat.
- Follow same instructions for cooking on a charcoal grill, moving the meat if it cooks too quickly and chars.
