Ever wonder what the difference is between a porterhouse and a t-bone steak? Michael Ollier, a chef with Certified Angus Beef Brand, explained that a porterhouse and t-bone are very similar but the porterhouse has a larger filet. He also suggests using a rub on your steak to give them the best seasoning. When putting them on the grill you want to sear one side and then move them to the cooler side of the grill to finish cooking to avoid too much charring.

Michael only cooks with Certified Angus Beef Brand because of the marbling. Marbling is where you find all of the flavors for your meat and Certified Angus Beef Brand has just the right amount of marbling for a juicy steak.
