This is what wood-fired grilling is all about. We’re taking the big steak on the block and giving it Traeger’s signature reverse-sear for big time, beefy flavor.

Units of Measurement:

  • 2 (2 lb) dry-aged porterhouse steaks

  • kosher salt

  • 8 Cup arugula

  • extra-virgin olive oil

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 3 Ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Steps

  • 1

    2 hours before cooking, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature. Pat dry with a paper towel.

    Ingredients

    • 2 (2 lb) dry-aged porterhouse steaks

  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 225℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke, if available.

    Generously season both sides of the steaks with salt. Insert the probe into the thickest part of a steak, avoiding the bone and any large pockets of fat. Place the steaks directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and cook until the internal temperature reaches 120°F, 30-45 minutes.

    Place the steaks back on the grill, re-insert the probe, and sear until the internal temperature reaches 125-130℉ for medium-rare, or your desired temperature, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing against the grain into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

    Spread the arugula on a large platter, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Place the sliced steak and any juices on top of the arugula. Generously grind black pepper and shave the Parmigiano-Reggiano over the steak. Enjoy!
