Easy Italian eats: Grilled porterhouse steaks and Tuscan white beans

Dario Cecchini, aka the Butcher of Panzano, shares two of his incredibly easy Italian dishes. He shows how to make giant grilled porterhouse steak, simply seasoned with herbed salt and olive oil. He calls it "primitive cooking," as all you need is a couple of ingredients, fire — and a very large cleaver. To serve on the side, try Cecchini's super-easy recipe for rustic white beans with garlic and sage.
