Regarding BBQ, Inc.
This is a fantastic way to add a southwestern flare to a porterhouse steak. With a quick sear on the grill, the chipotle paste is locked in making this dish very flavorful.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 2 to 4


  • 2 pounds porterhouse steak
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoons chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Combine garlic, chili powder, salt, oil and pepper in a small bowl. Mix until it forms a thick paste. Rub paste over the entire surface of the steak. Wrap steak in plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours. Preheat grill. Grill steak over as high a heat as you can for 2 minutes. Flip and continue grilling for 2 more minutes. Move to a cooler part of the grill or reduce heat to medium. Continue grilling until done. About 4 minutes per side.

Followed the recipe to the T ..., Member Shami3811

... and it was the best steak I've ever tasted, and that includes restaurants. I mixed all the spices together and put the steaks in the fridge to marinate overnight and until I came home the next evening. I simply pan fried the steaks to a medium rare. I did not expect the awesome range of taste from the garlic and salt and then the after hint of heat from the cayenne pepper. I do not think I will prepare steak any other way from now on. You will not be disappointed with this recipe.
