I can't see the bone..nor the filet....I do see a couple of indications of a well trimmed boneless rib eye.....

UB, I was thinking it was the NY Strip half of a porterhouse.

It very well could be just that Andy! I see the cut away from the bone on the right... I Can't really see the top edge cut...due the position of the steak. At the very bottom there seems to be a small piece of meat/fat that I call "tail meat" which makes me "think" rib-eye...When cooking several rib-eyes I usually pinch this piece off...just to make sure the flavor is right

I guess Jeekinz will come back and set us straight!

Folks, that was what I was trying to bring up in a very gentle fashion.

That piece of meat does not look like a Porterhouse to me.

It might be the strip, the outside part of the Porterhouse, but it does not look like it to me. Would guess the sirloin.

But it looks very tasty.

I did not want to challange the poster, just me. I try to make folks happy.

But a Porterhouse has a bone, the filet portion, and the strip, as we all know. Both are yummy.

I just never want to jump in anyone's face. It looks like a great piece of marbelized meat. But, yeah, it certainly does not seem to be a Porterhouse from the picture.
