How to prepare the Porterhouse:
- Preheat oven to 500°F. If your oven will heat to 550°F, do so.
- In a small bowl, mix together the basil, sage, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Add the garlic and oil and stir together. You will have about 1 cup of the rub.
- Rub the mixture on both sides of the steak. Let the steak sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare a charcoal or gas grill or preheat the broiler and position a rack 4 inches from the heating element.
- Before igniting the grill, lightly spray the grill rack with cooking spray. The coals should be medium-hot for the charcoal grill. The burners should be on a high for the gas grill.
- Grill or broil the steak for about 5 minutes. Turn, using tongs, and grill the other side for about 5 minutes, just long enough to sear both sides so that the herb rub adheres to the meat and starts to turn crispy. Remove from the grill or broiler and transfer to a roasting pan.
- Roast the steak in the oven for 9-11 minutes to reach internal temperature of 115F for medium-rare. Or the desired degree of doneness*.
- Put the steak on a cutting board and let it rest for 10 to 12 minutes. Slice the steak 1⁄4 inch thick, arrange on a serving platter, and spoon collected juices over the slices, if desired.
