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


  • 2 pounds/900 g. porterhouse steak
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoons/15 mL chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL oil (grapeseed, avocado, or canola)
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL chipotle chili powder

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine garlic, chili powder, salt, oil and pepper in a small bowl.

  2. Mix until it forms a thick paste. Rub paste over the entire surface of the steak.

  3. Wrap steak in plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours.

  4. Preheat grill.

  5. Grill steak over as high a heat as you can for 2 minutes. Flip and continue grilling for 2 more minutes.

  6. Move to a cooler part of the grill or reduce heat to medium and continue grilling until done. About 4 minutes per side.
