THE CUT

Tomahawk steak is a cut of beef rib eye that has an extra length of the rib bone still intact, for presentation purposes.  Its name comes from the long bone resembling a single-handed axe.  
 

HOW TO COOK

Due to their size and the long bone attached to the steak Tomahawks are ideal cooked on the BBQ or a flat grill pan over the stove top and finished in the oven.  Caramelise your steak over a hot grill for 3-4 minutes which will give the steak some impressive grill marks, then pop into an oven to finish the cooking process for around ten minutes, depending on the size of the steak.  Remember to allow the meat to rest sufficiently before eating.
