2×1 lb. porterhouse steaks, on the bone and
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoon salt

Roquefort Cheese. t
2 oz. butter
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh watercress
Preheat the grill to high and line the grill pan with aluminium foil.
Using a sharp knife, cut each steak in half, crosswise.
Rub each steak with the Tabasco sauce and season with the salt and pepper. Place the steaks on the rack in the grill pan and place the pan under the heat. Grill for 2 minutes on each side.
Reduce the heat to low and cook for a further 2 minutes on each side. This will produce rare steaks. Double the cooking time for well-done steaks.
Remove the pan from under the heat. Transfer the steaks to a warmed serving dish.
In a small mixing bowl, mash the butter and watercress together with a fork. Place a spoonful of the watercress butter on top of each steak and serve at once.
