An easy, flavorful, end of summer recipe for Labor Day: Porterhouse Steak with Pan-Seared Cherry Tomatoes from July 2008 Gourmet magazine. A surprising combination of tomatoes and steak works extremely well along with fresh thyme and basil. Try to get a variety of cherry tomatoes from the farmer’s market. The steak is seared on a grill pan and finished in the oven. The tomatoes and herbs are quickly cooked in the pan, and the tomato juices make a rich, bright pan sauce.
