Serves 4

Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Chimichurri Ingredients

  • 1 (2-inch-thick) porterhouse steak (about 2-3/4 lb.)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, more as needed
  • 1 Tbs. sherry vinegar, more as needed
  • 2 medium cloves garlic
  • 1 small jalapeño

Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Chimichurri Directions

  1. Season the steak well with salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour or refrigerate uncovered for 48 hours. Meanwhile, make the chimichurri: In a blender, purée the parsley, cilantro, oil, vinegar, garlic, jalapeño, 1 tsp. of salt, and 1/4 tsp. of pepper, adding more oil as needed. Transfer to a small bowl and season to taste with more salt and vinegar, if required.
  2. If the steak is refrigerated, let it come to room temperature before grilling. For a charcoal grill, light a chimney starter full of charcoal and bank the coals against one side of the grill. For a gas grill, start with all burners on medium-high and then turn off one or more burners to create hot and cool zones.
  3. Pat the steak dry and grill over the hottest part of the grill, rotating it occasionally to create a crust, until well browned on one side, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip and sear the other side.
  4. Move the steak to the cooler part of the grill, cover, and cook to your desired doneness (about 14 to 18 minutes for medium-rare). Let rest for five to ten minutes before serving with the chimichurri sauce.
