- 4 porterhouse steaks, about 3 cm thick
- Olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
Remove the steak from the fridge and lightly brush with olive oil. Season with the salt and pepper.
Preheat the barbecue for direct cooking.
Once the barbecue is preheated, leave all the burners on high.
Place the steaks on the grill. Using the back of your tongs, gently press down on the steak to ensure good contact with the grill.
Close the lid and cook for between 3 and 6 minutes per side, depending on how well done you would like the steak cooked (see timing guide). Turn the steak once, halfway through the total cooking time.
Remove the steak from the barbecue and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes.
