Tomahawk Steak

If you have never had a tomahawk steak then you are in for a real treat! They are so delicious and hold in the juices so well that it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

This cut of meat actually has about an 8-inch bone left in it. The meat is trimmed off of the bone to make it look like the handle of an ax. This gives this cut of meat a total “wow factor” but it really also helps it cook! The bone-in keeps the meat super tender while it cooks. This steak is often seen at restaurants but with this recipe, you can recreate it at home and enjoy it whenever you want!

Let’s Cook Some Steak!

This delicious and juicy tomahawk steak will soon become a requested favorite at your home. And the best part is that it only takes 10 minutes of prep time before you have to put it in the oven!

  1. Get your meat to room temperature: Allow the steaks to rest at room temperature for 45 minutes before cooking.
  2. Preheat and prep: Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place a cooling rack in the baking sheet and set aside.
  3. Rub on oil: Rub olive oil on all sides and edges of the steak using your hands. Then, season the steak generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Sear the steak: In a large skillet, sear both sides of the steak. About 3-4 minutes per side. Use tongs to help sear the edges as well.
  5. Bake: Place the steak on the prepared baking sheet. Cook in the oven until desired doneness. About 35 minutes for rare, 45 minutes for medium rare, and 55 minutes for medium. Be sure to use a digital thermometer to be certain of the temperature doneness.
  6. Let it rest: Remove the steak from the oven. Cover tightly with foil and rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with delicious sides, and garnish with fresh herbs.

How to Sear a Steak

Searing this tomahawk steak will seal in all of the juices creating a tender and delicious meat when it’s done. Here are a few tips on how to do it just right!

  • Let the meat rest outside of the fridge: If you let your meat sit out for about 45 minutes to come down in temperature then it will help when you sear it. When you sear with a very cold piece of meat then it takes longer to cook because the center will still be cold. When you bring the meat to room temperature before searing it then that means it will cook faster, there is less time to lose moisture and you will be left with a delicious and juicy steak!
  • Preheat your skillet: Before you sear your steak, turn the heat on for your skillet and let it heat up. Doing this gives a much more crisp, brown crust on your meat. This will also prevent the meat from sticking.

Can I Put Sauce on Top?

Yes! Although this tomahawk steak is so moist and delicious without any additional sauce, you can totally add some after you are done cooking. A favorite of mine is Chimichurri sauce. It’s a classic to serve with tomahawk steaks!

How to Store Leftovers

This tomahawk steak makes fantastic leftovers. You can easily reheat it for your meal and add in some sides or you can cut it up and add it to a salad. Either way, it will be delicious!

  • Refrigerate: When your steak has cooled down then place it in an airtight container and put it in your fridge. It will last 3-4 days.
  • Reheat: When you are ready to eat your leftover steak, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Add a wire rack onto a baking sheet and place your steak on it. Cook your steak for about 15-20 minutes. Check on it often to make sure that it hasn’t dried out. Add some Chimichurri sauce on top and enjoy!


Tomahawk Steak

Tomahawk Steak

A tomahawk steak is pretty much every steak lover’s dream cut.

Tomahawk Steak – But it also comes at a pretty insane price when served in a steakhouse. If you want all the joy of a tomahawk at only half the cost, you should make it at home (unless it’s a special night out of course). Home-cooked steaks are always the best steaks.

The first tomahawk you make can be a little scary between the high cost and unusually thick cut. If you know what you’re doing though, it’s a breeze. Here is everything you need to know to buy, cook, or serve a perfect tomahawk steak.

What is a tomahawk steak?

Tomahawk steaks are bone-in ribeyes, cut from ribs 6-12, with a huge length of bone left intact and the meat frenched up to get everything clean looking. Is it the same as a regular bone-in ribeye? Yes, but you also eat with your eyes, and you can’t beat the sight of a 24″ rib bone.

Are they a scam?

Someone will inevitably tell you that tomahawk steaks are a total scam, pound-for-pound overpriced, and that you’re just paying for a bone. And, they’re not totally wrong: a tomahawk steak absolutely goes for a premium over a regular bone-in ribeye steak at a restaurant. And, yes, they do taste more or less the same as a bone in ribeye.

But any thick cut steak also goes for a premium over a smaller steak of the exact same kind. Fewer people buy them, and that raises the price. I love tomahawk steaks because their popularity means they’re so much easier to come by than a good 2.5” thick cut bone-in ribeye.

If you’re making them at home, the price premium is much smaller and makes sense for a special home celebration or weekend meal. The moment you pull out out that giant tomahawk steak for the grill, everyone instantly smiles.

Are thick-cut bone-in steaks better?

Without a doubt, thick bone in steaks are better. Often the meatiest, beefiest, most flavorful parts of the meat are right next to the bone. The thickness of the steak allows you to get a good medium rare/whatever finish you want on the inside while still getting the deeply browned thick crust of your dreams on the outside. The thickness of the steak makes it more forgiving: it’s basically impossible to overcook a 2″ steak without great effort and forgetfulness.

How big are tomahawk steaks?

Depending on which bone you get, tomahawks can range in size between 30 oz to 60 oz. In my experience, every tomahawk I’ve ever bought has been between 48 oz and 60 oz.

Where do you buy a tomahawk steak?

Costco is often your best bet to get a tomahawk if you want one right away, but if you want something truly special, I’m a big fan of Snake River Farms American Wagyu Tomahawk.

The best place to buy any meat is your local butcher. Period. All of the best steaks I’ve ever had came from local shops no matter where in the world I was. They may need a few days to get it ready or order it in, but it’s the best option.

Tomahawk steak at costco

Did I really say costco earlier? Yes! As of this writing, many costcos sell Tomahawk steaks and they’re even offically ‘American Wagyu’. I haven’t tried it but a buddy of mine did and his review was: “really good, tastes like bone-in ribeye at double the price”.

What is American Wagyu?

American wagyu are Japanese cows, hopefully Japanese black cows (called Kuroge Wagyu in Japan) that are raised and pastured in America. They can be full-blooded or cross bred with other breeds. It can range in quality from ordinary to amazing.

USDA Prime and Certified Angus are both easily as good, if not better, so there’s no need to hunt any specific cow down. With any steak, even and consistent (and copious) marbling is often a great sign of how good that steak will be. Grass fed is better than Grain or Corn fed/finished, as well, in my opinion. It makes for a more complex, satisfying taste.

How to cook tomahawk steak

You can cook a tomahawk steak just like a normal one, the most important factor is to make sure it’s well tempered (rested to room temperature) so you’re getting the inside up to temp fast enough before the outside burns. It’s much better to get the inside right up to medium rare so you can sear without worrying. There are a bunch of ways of doing that, here are my favorites.

In the oven

Set your oven as low as it can go, about 250ºF for most people, and leave your steak in there for about 40 mins to an hour. If you have a meat thermometer or oven probe (more on that below) leave it in until it is 10 degrees lower than your desired final temperature. A chart is below as well for easy reference.

Sous vide

This one is easy: add your steak and any rubs, marinades you would like to a water bath and set it for 10 degrees lower than you want to end up at (see the doneness table below).The steak can stay in the bath for up to 8 hours, although 1-2 is usually more than enough, depending on how cold your steak was when it entered the bath.

On the grill

This one definitely needs a meat thermometer but also produces the best flavor in my opinion, espcially if doing charcoal. Move your coals to one side, or if using gas, only light up one side of the grill. Leave your steak as far away as possible from the coals or the burner on the other side of the grill and close it. Flip once in awhile to make sure you’re getting even heat.

The importance of a meat thermometer

When cooking steak, especially one that costs north of $100, a meat thermometer is essential. I recommend an oven probe that beeps when the target temp is hit. They can be really cheap, wireless app driven, or something in between. Personally I always go with the cheap option. If all you have is an instant read, be sure to check often to make sure the steak doesn’t get overcooked.

Steak cooking temps

For a quick and easy reference, when we have dinner parties in our house, our steaks are roughly done at:

  • Rare: 125ºF
  • Medium-rare: 135ºF
  • Medium: 145ºF
  • Medium-well: 155ºF
  • Well done: Don’t do this

Searing your tomahawk steak

Once you have your internal temperature up to where you want it, you’ll need to sear it. I like to always rest a steak before searing (more on that later). When searing, use as high of a heat as you can produce.

If you’re already grilling it, all you need to do is warm up the grill to max while you’re resting it, then move it over to the direct heat zone and grill it to the right color (for me, that’s 30 seconds on a side). If your steak was done sous vide or in oven, you’ll need to sear it on a stove (more on that below) or some other way – I use an 800 degree pizza oven.

How to sear a tomahawk steak on a stove

Cooking a tomahawk on the stove is difficult because of the bone. Even if your cast iron pan is huge, aka 14”+ wide, you’ll probably find it hard to contact the entire steak to the pan. You can buy a low side pan such as a plancha or this cast iron crepe pan. You can also try to squeeze it down as best you can, then baste whatever can’t touch with some butter.

How long to let steak rest for

When you apply heat to muscle fibers they contract and squeeze out moisture. Resting time allows the fibers to relax again, reabsorb some of the moisture, and generally produces a more tender and much juicier steak. You don’t necessarily need to wrap the steak in foil but allowing it to rest for 5-15 minutes after the main cooking process is absolutely vital. Longer is better. I prefer to rest my steak, then sear so it’s as hot as possible when serving.

How to reheat steak

To reheat a steak, just let it come to room temp on the countertop for about an hour, then sear and serve.

Best sauces for steak

Some people believe in nothing but good ol’ salt and pepper. For me, I prefer to change the taste of the meal as it goes on, so I start with a pure bite of salt and pepper, then move onto a nice steak sauce or other preparation. When we had our expensive steak dinner in Kobe, they served it 16 different ways. Alternately, you can just make your steak with salt and pepper and serve it alongside a nice selection of steak sauces. Check here for our guide to all the best steak sauces.
