Last month, we challenged our social media followers to cook the cover of issue 157—a mouthwatering grilled porterhouse steak—and instagram the results. While every steak submitted was gorgeous, the following two photos took the prize. Congratulations to @sharpandshinyshop and @bladecki22 , who will each receive a selection of awesome recent cookbooks.
