I’ve tried Bob’s Steakhouse and Nick and Sam’s plus various other popular steakhouses in Dallas. My favorite steak so far is Capital Grille’s Porcini Crusted Delmonico with 8 year aged Balsamic. I’ve had it twice now and brought friends along to try it too. Everyone so far has loved it. I came across the very simple recipe yesterday and wanted to blog it before the site goes away or I forget about it. Can’t wait to try this with my aged balsamic vinegar that I brought back from Napa Valley!
Executive Chef Brandon Engel from the Capital Grille shares a recipe for Porcini Crusted Delmonico ( Ribeye).
- 1/2 cup Kosher Salt

We had this at the Capital Grille in Chevy Chase, MD the other week. I think it was the best steak I have ever had!

I had this rub on Scallops last week at the Capital Grille here in Pittsburgh. Outstanding, the taste was unbelieveable. The bartender suggested it to us and it was tremendous.
This picture is a porterhouse not ribeye
Capital Grille calls it their Delmonico. It seems everyone has a different interpretation of that cut. http://www.steakperfection.com/delmonico/Steak.html
That is actually a Porterhouse steak
I worked for The Capital Grille. The Delmonico is a 22 oz. ribeye where this has the tenderloin and filet, which is a Porterhouse.
Kerry – is this a good recipe?
Thanks for the correction!
