It couldn't any easier. "Canadian Steak Seasoning" is made by McCormick. It is also available generically as "Master Choice" GREAT SHAKES - Grilled Steak Seasoning. This can be used for any type of steak - not just Porterhouse. Try it with chuck or round! Tenderizer and MSG can be sprinkled together or only one and not the other. Salty and spicy - high in sodium!!! Great for George Foreman type grills! Read More

If you let the meat come to room temperature before cooking you will get a tender steak!! I tried it and it's true - now I always make sure they're room temp. before I cook them - TRY IT - IT WORKS!! I also use Montreal steak seasoning. Read More

I used McComrick's Montreal steak seasoning and fresh cracked pepper. I prepared these the morning of and let them sit wrapped in the fridge all day. Lightly brush the steaks with oil you really only need a very light coat or you can end up with a grill fire. Read More

A porterhouse like a t bone is really two steaks; a strip (yuck) and a filet (yum). The strip side does need tenderizing usually but leave the filet side alone. A mechanical tenderizer is best for that strip side. Read More

There's nothing better than a perfect porterhouse. It's the best of both world's - a strip on one side and a filet on the other. I rubbed the whole steak with a little olive oil lightly scored the strip and rubbed McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning into it and let them rest until they got to room temp no need for tenderizer. I left the filet side alone. Once these came off the grill I let some garlic butter melt over them. Read More

When listing ingredients it would be good to say more accurately what some of them are. I.E. What is "Canadian seasoning?" Read More

A good recipe gone bad because of the tenderizer, which Hubs never uses when he grills steaks. This cut of meat doesn't/shouldn't need tenderizer, let alone this much! Steak seasoning is good, as is olive oil, although Hubs says he doesn't really notice a difference with or without it. Porterhouse works great for us - he enjoys the strip portion and I prefer the tenderloin. Begin with steaks at room temperature. Let rest, covered, for about 5 minutes after cooking to allow juices to redistribute. Read More

Tried this with garlic infused EVOO. It was wonderful. I also eliminated the meat tenderizer because I didn't have on hand. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
