Chef David Rose’s Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Arugula Salsa Verde

Discover the story
Today we welcome to WOT Chef David Rose to be a part of our Grill Week and go LIVE with Camila!

Chef David Rose not only gave us an amazing recipe for Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Arugula Salsa Verde (more on that below), but he also gave us some great grill tips!

Here are some tips that he suggests when grilling: 

• For those who are grilling with charcoal, natural is always best. Go for charcoal that has no additives or preservatives.

• When you are heating up your grill, make sure you use an oil with a high smoking point (like peanut oil). To grease your grill put a little oil on a paper towel and just wipe down the grates.

• Chef David also suggests cleaning the grill after each time you cook. Wait for it to cool down a little bit, and then clean! The last tip? To really grill right, Chef David Rose suggests getting a grill thermometer.

Now, for the fun part — Cooking some steak! For this Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Arugula Salsa Verde recipe, Chef David pre-heated his steak using an emersion blender. But if you don’t have one at home don’t worry…. You can do the reverse sear! Set the grill up first at 250 degrees. This will slowly bring your meat up to temperature. Then you will want to sear and ramp up the heat to 500 or 550 degrees.

Check out the video below for all of the step-by-step instructions from Chef David Rose and Camila as they made this recipe LIVE!
