A Porterhouse is a steak cut of beef. It is cut from the strip loin, contains a considerable part of the tenderloin and a T-shaped bone. It is about 6 cm thick and weighs 700 to 1000 grams. Most people cook it on a grill or in a frying pan. Depending on the liked degree of cooking it is grilled or pan-fried for 5 to 7 minutes on each side.

A Porterhouse is also a British alehouse, in which Porter – a dark malt beer – is served. Porterhouse steaks have been served to hungry customers in these alehouses since the middle of the 19th century. Nowadays the Porterhouse steak is considered a dish serving two or three people rather than one.
