If the steak world could have a “buzzword,” there’s little doubt that “Tomahawk” would be it. Although a relative newcomer to the scene, we’re not surprised the Tomahawk Steak has grabbed the attention of everyone who loves thick cut ribeye steaks. Grill masters and steak lovers across the globe have serious questions about this steak, and you’ll be thrilled to discover we’ve got all the answers.

What is a “Tomahawk” Steak?

Simply put, a Tomahawk Steak (sometimes dubbed a “Cowboy Steak”) is the impressive, extra-thick cut, deliciously marbled bone-in ribeye we’ve all been dreaming about for, well, pretty much ever. At 34 ounces of tender perfection, this is one steak that can speak for itself. Many believe that cooking ribeye steak with the bone in results in a richer, deeper flavor, and we’re inclined to agree. Even if for nothing else, the Tomahawk Steak with long bone in takes the presentation over the top. And what’s a steak without presentation? Exactly.

How do you cook a Tomahawk Steak?

Tomahawk steaks are best cooked on the grill or under the broiler. The nature of an extra-thick cut bone-in steak requires an increased cook time, so be sure to allow extra time when preparing this steak. Extra-thick cut bone-in ribeye steaks are also great with a reverse sear, which involves baking the steak at a low temperature until it reaches the preferred level of doneness, then pan searing it to achieve a delicious crust. 

Why should I buy a Tomahawk Steak?

Filet Mignon and bone-in ribeyes have been the steak lover’s favorites for many years, but with the introduction of the Tomahawk, it may be time to change your starting line-up. The Tomahawk boasts both quantity and tender, rich quality, with each extra-thick cut offering enough steak to feed up to two people.
