This is similar to This Question, but hopefully different enough.
I have 3 porterhouse steaks sitting in my refrigerator that I need to cook up tonight. I've been told leaving them out for an hour and salting them a half hour before cooking is the way to do it. However scheduling conflicts dictate that I either leave my steaks sitting out for an hour and a half to two hours, or eat at 9 o'clock at night.
Will the steaks be ok being left out that long? or will I need to just suck it up and eat a late dinner?
Note: my apartment is usually kept at around 70-75 degrees.
