    A T-bone steak is a cut that includes New York strip steak on one side and tenderloin (filet mignon) on the other side. A porterhouse steak, however, is basically a T-bone with a larger portion of tenderloin. Both are impressive steaks for sharing. And both are excellent topped with a fresh herb sauce, like chimichurri.

    Things To Grab


      1. To make the chimichurri sauce:
      2. Mash the garlic in a mortar and pestle or food processor.
