dinner in the [porter] house!

So after a grueling day of laying around by the pool, it was that time again… dinner!
Tonight was a special night of grilling and the star of the show was a gorgeous, thick porterhouse steak. The porterhouse is cut from the rear end of the short loin, and are made up of a strip steak and filet mignon. To not strip away from its meaty goodness, this super cut of meat was dressed only with kosher salt and some fresh pepper [not usually my go-to] and grilled to perfection.
As a side, the market had some beautiful fresh corn. So seasoned with my very own homemade garlic oil, freshly grated pecorino romano and some spicy stuff [shhhh it’s a secret] and these little gems were tossed onto the grill in some aluminum foil till tender!
After grilling the steak, it took a ten minute nap and then onto the plate with its date for the evening. Juicy and succulent with the perfect grill marks, while the corn was sweet, briny and a touch spicy!
Wonder what tomorrow will bring… probably no grilling since rain is in the forecast… sigh… Well I’m sure it will be tasty!

at a low simmer…
