Mountain Man Bourbon Porterhouse Steak

There can’t be much that is heartier to a hungry appetite than a giant hunk of meat. This recipe for a Mountain Main Bourbon Porterhouse Steak takes an enormous 2” thick steak and packs a punch of umami goodness with mushrooms, onions, and of course, Applewood smoked bacon. Topped off with a basting of Bourbon Pan Glaze, this is a meal big enough for two people, or one average backcountry woodsman after catching a mountain of beaver and chopping a forest of trees and skinnin’ a couple o’ griz.

Baste steak with Bourbon Pan Glaze, flip and repeat process (4 minute cook, turn 45⁰ and cook additional 4 minutes). Baste steak with additional Pan Glaze, remove from heat and let rest 6-8 minutes. Cooking times will vary depending upon preference for doneness. Look for an internal temperature of 135⁰ for medium rare, 145⁰ for medium, etc.
