This grilled t bone is not only delicious but offers a beautiful presentation. They will ooh and ahh and then you will hear Mmmmmm.
I marinate the steak overnight using the recipe below and bring it out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.
Roast Baby Dutch Potatoes
PREHEAT oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil.
Rub the baby yellow potatoes with oil, poke with a fork and place on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle with sea salt and roast 20-25 minutes.
Just slice down both sides of the t bone as close as you can get. Then slice thin horizontal strips on each side directly across from one another.
USE THIS MARINADE.

1/4 cup homemade worcestershire sauce
3 TBS fresh garlic, minced
3 TBS dried basil
1-1/2 TBS parsley, dried

Grilling time for steak will vary due to how you want it cooked. Below are the lower and higher range temperature your steak should read when done to your liking.
Pan frying steak in cast iron. Coat bottom with olive oil and add 2 crushed cloves of garlic. Once it starts turning brown, take it out of the pan and discard.
Prep Steak - generously add kosher salt and pepper on both sides of the steak. Top with fresh rosemary. Cover and cure in refrigerator for at least two hours or so.
These times are for an one inch thick steak. If you have a two inch thick steak, double the time.
In a very hot pan:
Rare - cook for 8 minutes per side
Medium-Rare - cook for 9 minutes per side
Medium - cook 10-11 minutes per side for medium
Medium-Well, cook for 12-15 minutes per side.
after that you are on your own...

My favorite steak butter...
BLUE CHEESE BACON BUTTER
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
3 TBS crumbled blue cheese
2 bacon strips, fried and crumbled

Mix all ingredients together and form into a log, wrap in parchment paper and chill until you need it. In addition to melting this on a grilled steak, it rocks on a baked potato or even pasta.
