A good thick (1 to 1 1/2 inch) porterhouse easily will feed two tofour
people, unless they are starving lumberjacks or threshers. So buyone
steak for every two (or four) people, the day before you plan tocook
it. It benefits by spending a day in a Pour 1/4 cup of the best
quality olive oil over eack steak, alongwith a generous grind of coarse
black pepper. Let the steak marinate,refrigerated, for 8 to 12 hours,
turningoccasionally. If the steak isfrozen, it may take as long as 24
hours to th When you are ready for the best steak that you've ever

incorporate the steak drippings that have drained downbetween the
ridges of the skillet. Pour theAppeared in the San Antonio Express
