Hey there, fellow steak enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into the marvelous world of the porterhouse steak – that glorious cut that brings together the buttery tenderness of filet mignon and the robust flavor of a New York strip. But here’s the kicker – we’re doing it all in the oven, so you can enjoy steakhouse perfection without leaving the comfort of your kitchen.


The porterhouse steak, a carnivore’s dream, is a classic cut that originates from the short loin of the cow. It’s essentially a T-bone steak with a larger portion of the tenderloin (filet mignon). This king of steaks deserves a crown, and we’re about to give it one with this oven-baked method.

Ingredients for OvenBaked Porterhouse Steak Bliss:

  • · 1 porterhouse steak, about 1.5 inches thick
  • · 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • · 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • · 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • · 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • · Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • · 2 tablespoons butter

Instructions for OvenBaked Porterhouse Steak Bliss:

  1. Prep the Porterhouse: Take that beautiful porterhouse out of the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking. We want it to come to room temperature for an even cook
  2. Seasoning Time: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Meanwhile, rub the porterhouse with olive oil, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, salt, and a generous grind of black pepper. Make sure every inch of that steak is coated with flavor.
  3. Sear in Style: Heat an oven-safe skillet or cast-iron pan over high heat. When it's smoking hot, sear the porterhouse for about 2 minutes on each side, including the fat edge. We're creating that beautiful crust.
  4. Buttery Goodness: Add butter to the pan. Once it's melted, spoon it over the steak along with the garlic and herbs. Baste that beauty like it's a VIP guest.
  5. Into the Oven: Pop the whole skillet into the preheated oven. Cook the porterhouse for about 5-7 minutes for medium-rare, adjusting the time based on your preferred doneness.
  6. Rest and Revel: Take the steak out of the oven, place it on a cutting board, and let it rest for at least 10 minutes. This step is crucial for the juices to redistribute, giving you a juicy bite every time.
  7. Slice and Savor: Carve that porterhouse into thick slices, making sure to include both the filet and strip sides on each plate. This is a steak lover's dream come true
