“The inspiration for this dish came from me wanting a unique presentation for a very popular item. The porterhouse cut is known as the ‘king’ of steaks in a steakhouse. This cut in lamb gives that same bold statement. Since the flavor profile is rich and buttery, I complement it with a simple chimichurri touched with mint and tomato as a simple, clean accent.” Thomas Connell, executive chef of Fountainebleau

Yield: 5 servings

Lamb Porterhouse

  1. Place lamb, rosemary, thyme, garlic, oil, fleur de sel, and pepper in sous vide bag. Set water bath to 128°F; circulate for 2 hours.
  2. Remove from bag; grill or sear to desired temperature. Serve with polenta fries and tomato-mint churri.

Polenta Fries

  1. In a saucepan, heat cream and water, lightly seasoned with salt, to a boil over high heat, about 5 minutes. Quickly whisk in polenta until fully incorporated.
  2. Lower heat to a low simmer; add butter. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until polenta is creamy and cooked through.
  3. Stir in parmesan, tomatoes, basil, and salt and pepper to taste; cool, cover and refrigerate, at least 2 hours. Cut into desired fry size. Dust in flour; fry in a fryer at 350°F for 1 minute until golden.
