Valentine’s Day at Porterhouse Butcher and Grill

For steak lovers, Porterhouse Butcher and Grill is proving to be a popular option for dining couples. Our famous Himalayan Salt aged Porterhouse steak is ideal for 2 to share and we're almost fully booked.

If you're wanting to cook at home, we have steak that is seriously special. The beef – which comes from Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and Shorthorn cattle bred on the Glenarm Estate and surrounding farms in Northern Ireland – is dry-aged for up to 45 days in a Himalayan salt-brick chamber. The technique, perfected by Peter Hannan of Hannan Meats, centres on an ionisation process in which the negative ions of the mineral-rich, salt-brick walls counteract the positive ions of the meat. Together with careful light and temperature control, this allows the beef to tenderise over a longer period than conventional ageing, resulting in exceptional sweetness and flavour concentrations. Porterhouse is one of only a handful of butchers in the UK to sell these premium-quality steaks.
