How to Make Steak With Morton's

The Secret to Grilling a Porterhouse as Good as a Steakhouse



Morton's the Steakhouse has been an American fixture for more than 30 years, and there's nothing more iconic than the institution's classic porterhouse steak. We paid a visit to the Morton's kitchen, where we learned all about choosing a good steak, and the Morton's technique to ensure a tender, juicy piece of meat every single time. Bonus: we scored the recipe for their crowd-pleasing au jus, too.

Ingredients

  1. 3 (24-ounce) aged porterhouse steaks, each about 1 1/2 inches thick
  2. Vegetable oil cooking spray
  3. 2 tablespoons seasoned salt
  4. 6 tablespoons au jus (optional), for serving

Directions

  1. Prepare a gas grill or preheat the broiler and position a rack 4 inches from the heating element. Lightly spray the grill rack with vegetable oil cooking spray. The burners should be on high.
  2. Season the steaks lightly on both sides with the seasoned salt. If using a gas grill, grill for 6 to 8 minutes. Turn, using tongs, and grill the other side for 5 to 6 minutes for medium-rare or until the desired degree of doneness. If using the broiler, broil 4 inches from the heat source for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn, using tongs, and broil the other side for 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare, or until the desired degree of doneness.
  3. To serve, slice the steaks and spoon some of the au jus on top, if desired.
