2 beef porterhouse steaks, 1 1/2 inches thick (about 2 pounds each)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 Place a barbecue grill or broiler rack about 4 inches away from the heat source. Preheat the grill or broiler.
2 Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper. Grill or broil the meat 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the meat over with tongs and cook about 4 minutes more for rare, or 5 to 6 minutes for medium rare, depending on the thickness of the steaks. To check for doneness, make a small cut in the thickest part. For longer cooking, move the steaks to a cooler part of the grill.
3 Let the steaks rest 5 minutes before cutting crosswise into thin slices. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
