How Do You Cook a Tomahawk Steak?
Tomahawk steak can be cooked in a number of ways, the most popular being grilling on the BBQ, or frying in a pan on the stovetop. For both of these methods, you’ll first need to prepare your steak by bringing the cut to room temperature, and patting dry with a paper towel before seasoning with salt and pepper.
If you are cooking your steak on the BBQ, cook on direct heat for around 5 minutes per side (this may vary depending on the size of your steak). Once your steak has developed light grill marks, move to indirect heat and cook for a further 15 minutes, or until the steak is done to your liking. You could use a meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature of your steak.
If you’re cooking your steak in the oven try the reverse searing method to help bring out the meat’s incredible flavours. Cook your steak slowly in the oven at 110°C for around one hour. Once the time is up, take your meat out of the oven whilst you heat oil or butter in a hot pan. Cook your steak in the hot pan on both sides until a delicious crust forms on the steak. Take out and leave to rest for a few minutes before slicing, serving, and enjoying!
What is a Tomahawk Steak?
Tomahawk steak, also known as bone-in ribeye, is a cut of beef known for its impressive shape and size. The bone left in the meat runs down the centre, which helps to enhance the meat's flavour during the cooking process. This beef cut became popular in Texas, but its impressive size and axe-like shape has meant the steak is now popular across the globe. You will usually see tomahawk steaks served in fine-dining restaurants and as impressive dinner party centrepieces.
What Cut is a Tomahawk Steak?
A tomahawk steak is cut from the fore rib with the bone left on. The bone releases its flavours during cooking for added flavour. This, combined with the intermuscular fat content, results in a superb tasting steak. The tomahawk is usually shared due to its size and weight.
What Should You Serve With a Tomahawk Steak?
If you’re serving your steak as part of a midweek meal, try pairing it with golden hasselback potatoes, lightly brushed with a salty garlic butter. For a healthier option, serve your steak with a simple salad made from seasonal vegetables like baby plum tomatoes, cucumber, rocket, and thinly sliced red onion.
For your next summer BBQ, we’d suggest serving your steak with lightly charred corn on the cob, sautéed green beans, or grilled vegetable skewers with peppers, onion, and tomatoes.
