It’s grilling season and I have been going a little crazy with the grilling lately. I’ve been waiting all winter long for the weather to improve. Now, that it finally has warmed up, I just want to grill everything in sight. This Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Foil Pouch French Onion Green Beans recipe is perfect because it is an entire meal done on the grill, and that means hardly any cleanup! Woot woot! The original recipe I adapted is from the Certified Angus Beef® brand website, and it calls for cowboy ribeyes. However, that cut can be tough to find. When I went to my local ShopRite, where they have a GREAT selection of Certified Angus Beef® brand, I didn’t see any ribeyes in the case. So I rang the bell for the butcher. He knew exactly what I was looking for, but he didn’t have the cowboy ribeyes. So, he asked me some questions about the meal I was planning to make, and based on what I was planning, suggested that I substitute a porterhouse cut instead. He was so helpful and knowledgeable. As a result, I will be sure to shop at that store for my Certified Angus Beef® brand all the time! The porterhouse steaks ended up being a great substitution! All I had to do was salt and pepper them and toss them on the grill. Then, in no time at all I had an amazing grilled porterhouse steak meal and a happy family. Speaking of the meal, let’s talk about the Foil Pouch French Onion Green Beans. My kids are not generally fans of green beans, but this veggie side dish was so TASTY, even they had to admit it was good! It was the perfect accompaniment to the grilled porterhouse steak!
How to prepare the foil pouch veggies
Cooking the veggies with the foil pouch was new to me. I have seen pre-made foil pouches in the store, however I just used regular heavy duty foil and made my own. Since there was quite a bit of food to try to fit into the pouch, I used two pieces of foil, each about 18 inches long. I placed one on top of the other, and folded and pinched the edges for three of the sides. Then I added all the ingredients and folded up the fourth edge. Make sure you are careful when handling the pouch, since it will be very hot after it has been on the grill for a few minutes!
