#MenuMonday: Florentine Steak

#MenuMonday: Balsamic and Rosemary-Marinated Florentine Steak

It’s #MenuMonday! This week we have a recipe for Balsamic and Rosemary-Marinated Florentine Steak from  This steak would be a great entree for any special event that you have!

Florentine Steak


  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped rosemary
  • One 3-pound porterhouse steak, about 4 inches thick
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper


  1. In a sturdy resealable plastic bag, combine the vinegar with 1/2 cup of the olive oil and the rosemary.
  2. Add the steak, seal the bag and refrigerate overnight, turning the bag several times.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425° and bring the steak to room temperature.
  4. Heat a grill pan.
  5. Remove the steak from the marinade and season with the salt and pepper. Rub the side with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  6. Grill over moderately high heat until nicely charred on the top and bottom, about 5 minutes per side.Transfer the steak to a rimmed baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the tenderloin (the smaller section) registers 125°. Alternatively, build a fire on one side of a charcoal grill or light a gas grill. Grill the steak over moderate heat for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer the steak to the cool side of the grill, close the lid and cook for 30 minutes longer.
  7. Transfer the steak to a carving board and let rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Slice the steak across the grain and serve immediately.
