Grilled Pork Porterhouse Steak

Grilled Pork Porterhouse Steak

By Traeger Kitchen

We’re taking Snake River Farms' unique Pork Porterhouse and bathing it in a sweet and savory overnight brine. From there, pat dry and season with our Big Game Rub, then give it a sear in Traeger’s signature wood-fired flavor.
