Only a few steaks can be classified as perfect. The porterhouse is one of them. A peerless cut consisting of a supple, ample-size filet and a robust strip joined by the T-bone, it compromises nothing in taste or presentation. Just season with salt and pepper and cook it to your notion of perfection. The earthy sweetness in a side of crunchy shoestring potatoes completes this indulgent yet unpretentious feast.
