Uncle Sam’s Porterhouse – November 25 2012
Since the weather has turned, I’ve been less inclined to cook on the grill. Fortunately, Uncle Sam’s Saloon has a Traeger Grill and they know how to use it. They have a couple different cuts on the menu, but on this night I had the porterhouse. I haven’t had a porterhouse in forever and forgot it’s nice having a New York Strip and a Filet in one sitting.
I would describe this steak using three words: “Simple and delicious.” It’s not overdone with seasoning and it was cooked perfectly.
When you order certain meals at Uncle Sam’s, they arrive on two giant platters. The porterhouse is no exception. One platter is dedicated for the steak and the other platter is dedicated to the sides. The side are a simple combination of baked potato and green beans.
I think what I really enjoyed about this porterhouse was the sheer size of the meal coupled with the flavor. The steaks at Sam’s are cooked perfectly to whatever temperature you desire on their Traeger grill. I ordered my porterhouse at medium rare and it was perfect. Granted, with the size of a porterhouse, the outer edges of the steak will be a little past medium rare. But you’re going to see this whenever you order a porterhouse from any restaurant. This steak was absolutely delicious.
The steaks at Sam’s are brought in from Knutzens Meats in Pasco. Sam’s uses Knutzen’s meat for all their steaks and burgers. The hamburger is Choice Angus ground round. All of their porterhouses are aged on site at Knutzen’s Meats. To order any of their steaks, you need to pre-order it by Wednesday at noon and let them know when you’ll be coming in.
