The Truth Behind the Tomahawk Steak Phenomenon

If you’re a fan of succulent, tender, restaurant-quality steak, then you’ve probably heard of the tomahawk steak. But is it really worth all the hype? Today, we’re going to delve into the world of tomahawk steaks and uncover what makes them so special.

What Exactly is a Tomahawk Steak?

At first glance, a tomahawk steak may look like a regular ribeye beef steak, but it’s anything but ordinary. What sets it apart is the fact that at least five inches of rib bone are left intact. This extra-long bone is French trimmed, a technique used to give it that unique shape, reminiscent of a Native American tomahawk axe. But it’s not just the bone that makes the difference.

The meat itself is highly marbled, incredibly tender, and bursting with flavor. It comes from a section of the animal where the muscles aren’t used much, resulting in exceptionally tender and soft meat. When you cook a tomahawk steak, the intramuscular fat melts and combines with the elements released from the large bone, creating an incredibly rich and satisfying flavor.

The Cost of Excellence

One glance at a tomahawk steak, and you’ll understand why it comes with a hefty price tag. These steaks are big. We’re talking about a thickness that matches the rib bone, with the average weight ranging from 30 to 45 ounces. At Chophouse Steaks, we take it a step further, offering tomahawk ribeye steaks that weigh between 44 and 55 ounces.

When you choose a tomahawk steak, you’re getting excellent value for your money. Its size alone makes it perfect for sharing, unless, of course, you’re feeling exceptionally hungry. Moreover, the bone handle adds a touch of elegance and uniqueness to your dining experience, making it an instant conversation starter.

Mastering the Art of Cooking a Tomahawk Steak

When it comes to cooking a tomahawk steak, there are no hard and fast rules, except for two: we provide the best steaks, and you should never cook frozen meat. Since we’re not dealing with Wagyu steaks here, you have the freedom to prepare your tomahawk steak however you please. But if you’re wondering how to barbecue it to perfection, here’s a simple guide:

  • Thaw the frozen steak in the refrigerator for 2-3 days until it reaches room temperature.
  • Just before grilling, generously season the steak with salt, ensuring you cover every inch of its thickness.
  • Preheat your grill to its highest setting and start grilling the meat, flipping it over to ensure all sides are evenly cooked.
  • If you prefer your steak medium-rare, you can use an internal heat thermometer to check its doneness. However, let’s be honest, you probably know exactly when it’s just right.
  • Once the steak is cooked to perfection, remove it from the grill, cover it with foil, and let it rest for at least 10-15 minutes.
  • For an added touch of indulgence, you can add a bit of butter and salt before slicing the meat against the grain to your desired thickness.
