Grilled porterhouse with marsala mushroom sauce and grilled asparagus.

Decided to celebrathe the beginning of the long weekend with a nice porterhouse. (Wife and kids wanted pizza, so this was all for me )

Nice and thick.

I coated in a layer of sea salt and pepper and let it sit for an hour, then rinsed and dried thoroughly.

On the little Weber with lump charcoal and a chunk of apple wood. (it was the only kind I had on hand and added a nice mellow background)

Steamed these in the microwave for a min then coated with olive oil and S&P.

Baby Potrabella mushrooms cooked in butter, garlic, onions, chicken stock and marsala wine. Awesome flavor.

Finished plate with some nice crusty french bread and some of moms potato salad.

Alittle of the mushroom marsala sauce on top. (I had to move the asparagus to make room)

Very nice did you put something on the asparagus after they came off the grill?

Yes, I sprinkled them with parmesan cheese. Also forgot to mention I dusted the mushrooms with a little flour before I put them in the pan. Thickened up the sauce nicely. I took the leftover meat off the bone today, cut it up and made a nice burrito with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and the mushrooms. Just delicious.

Sometimes the kids and the wife don't know what they want. Now that's a fine looking dinner you have there Doug. So now that you have eaten the monster steak you better cook something for the family for the rest of the weekend. I know maybe another pizza but this time on the smokers. Ellymae does them all the time. Great job on the steak to.

I'm waiting for a call from my brother-in-law to tell me to come and pick up some fresh haddock. He's out right now with my nephew and his brother-in-law about 25 miles off Plum Island, Massachusetts. There is nothing better than fresh haddock. When I say fresh I mean 3 hours ago it was swimming in the ocean and then it's swimming in butter in my belly. Also have a pork tenderloin I'm going to do something with and some beef short ribs. We are eating well this weekend.

Sorry, I didn't see your last reply.

I didn't really measure anything, but this is what I did.

 

Heated a little butter and olive oil in a skillet. Throw in some chopped onions and garlic and let cook down for a few mins. Dusted the mushrooms lightly with flour and tossed them in the pan with a little more butter, salt and pepper and cook for a few more mins. Added a couple splashes of chicken stock and let it reduce for a few mins. Then added the marsala, about half a cup. Let this reduce until it gets to the consistency you like. If it's too thin you can add a little more flour. Thats it. Now I'm going to have to make this again soon myself. Good luck and post your results when you make it.

WOW!!! Nuff said.

I can't believe I missed this post the first time around.

post #16 of 17

Yep...glad i saw this brought back up.  Im doing a nice steak for myself tonight as well to initiate the weekend camping.  Was going to pickup a Ribeye, but man that Porterhouse looks good.  Might sway my opinion, havent had a porterhouse in a long while. 

 

What was that L word that you used?  Le...Left...Leftover?  Leftover meat?  Never heard of it!

No kiddin' how do you have leftovers from a steak like that.
