Directions

Preheat a grill to high on one side and lightly oil the grate. Season a 2-inch-thick porterhouse steak (3 pounds) with coarse sea salt and pepper. Grill over direct heat for 4 minutes, then rotate the meat 90 and cook 2 more minutes. Repeat on the other side. Move the steak to the cooler part of the grill (position the smaller end away from the heat); cover and cook until the meat reaches 128 to 130 for medium-rare, 12 to 15 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing. To make the sauce, simmer 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 2/3 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup honey, 2 sliced shallots, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon dijon mustard, 1/4 teaspoon allspice, and salt, pepper and sugar to taste until thickened, about 15 minutes. Strain, then whisk in some butter.

I made this with rib steak and it was excellent. It made more than my husband and I needed so he used the rest on chicken and ... meatloaf... it is excellent as a topping for meatloaf. item not reviewed by moderator and published

to tart. too much ketchup item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sauce is perfect :, followed the recipe exactly as it is and after tasting it i wouldnt change a thing. I am a Chef with over 20 years in the industry and i quite often look up recipes for ideas, but to me a recipe is only a guide, i always make changes and tweaks after tasting, but not with this 1. 5 stars is too low in my opinion, i give it 100 stars : item not reviewed by moderator and published
I broiled my steak in an old seasoned black wrought iron pan following the directions. Turned the oven to hi/broil and flipped the steaks every 4 minutes until they were done enough for me.I also made the sauce I just used dried onion pieces instead of the shallots.The sauce is all over the net under different names I have even had it on chicken which is wonderful. I made the sauce tasting it as I go because I never measure anything. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Way way way way way way way way too much ketchup item not reviewed by moderator and published
An excellent sauce that really does go with almost anything. It's a little more vinegary than I anticipated but whisking in a couple of tablespoons of butter as suggested smoothed it out enough to make it delightful. I also added a touch more catsup along with "salt and pepper to taste". It went great on the Portabellas I grilled as well as the steak! My family gave the sauce great kudos and insisted we keep the extra for future use. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good! This is the best steak sauce ever! I want to use this on everything! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this, in volume, for a spring banquet and received very good reviews. I served it warm, as that is my preference. I forgot to add the butter at the end and it was still excellent so had a few less calories/fats in it. I'm sure the butter would only make it better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
