In the perfect grilled Tuscan steak recipe, a beautifully grilled steak is dressed with extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice; the olive oil complements the flavor of the meat, while the acidic notes of the lemon juice sharpen the flavors of the dish and cut its richness.

T-Bone and porterhouse steaks are large enough to serve two. We prefer to season the steaks with kosher salt because its coarse grains are easier to sprinkle evenly onto the meat than fine table salt.
