Huge Porterhouse steak

I have a large porterhouse, I cannot eat the whole thing. How crazy is it to slice the ny stripe part off and cook it and then cook the other part another time?

  1. Doesn't sound crazy to me! Go for it.

    1. Not crazy. Although I would carve off the tenderloin side and leave the Strip side on the bone and cook it that way.

        I also cut the tenderloin side off, and then cook the strip with bone. To serve, I cut away the bone for soup, and just serve the strip. The tenderloin is frozen. When I have a few of them I cook them as filets.

      2. eat the whole thing and skip the side dishes!

          Spoken like a true carnivore! I like the way you think!

            Unless you are going to cook it next day, I would not split the steak. Agree with Tbird....but then I once ate a 48 oz. porterhouse. got my name on the wall....when I returned home from the business trip and told my wife, she said , "What...are you proud? You should be ashamed of yourself." I'm not.

                It really is better to cook it with the bone attached, no doubt!

          2. Thank you all for your replies. Steakman, I would eat the rest tomorrow. ESNY, good thinking! I think I will just eat the sides tonight and do as TBird said and try to eat the steak tomorrow. Again, Thank you all for your replies. Steakman, I wouldn't be ashamed either! :-)

            1. Leftover meat from steaks and chops reappear as tacos in mi casa.
