Jean-Georges's Porterhouse Steak
Jean-Georges Vongerichten, owner of Prime Steakhouse, at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, shares his recipe for this classic meal. For a tender, juicy steak, use only prime beef, the highest grade of meat. A T-bone steak would also work here, but be sure to adjust cooking time as needed for a smaller cut.
