Is a Porter House Steak a seperate cut of meat or is it a Porter House T-Bone. just a Tbone with a larger fillet side?

Yes, they are from the same continuum of the cow. However it's not written anywhere in stone just when a t-bone becomes a porterhouse. Somewhere in the middle....

So Porter House Tbone is not a name in common usage? Its either a PorterHouse or Tbone. If so while I am technically correct, I hav elost this battle

A porterhouse is slightly different, it's further up the animal, a porterhouse has a much bigger filet side than a T-bone.
It's almost the same cut and is from the same set, but it's different.

MTM... might as well face it, she is right even if she is wrong.

Porterhouse = T Bone + filet

T Bone = Ny Strip - bone

NY StripT Filet

Kinda like that...

A porterhouse steak is a distinct cut. A Tbone is another cut. NY Strip is a further cut and the filet is simply the best cut.

Having been a retail meat cutter 25 years perhaps this will help. A porterhouse is about the first 5-6 inches of a short loin. If you were to look at the strip side of the steak on the very top in the middle there is a small section of meat that is seperated by some silver skin.

The next 7-9 inches are T-bones. The T-bone should show no less then 2 inches of tenderloin. The rest of the short loin would be made into strip steaks bone in or boneless.
