Tomahawk Steak


The tomahawk steak is essentially a ribeye steak specifically cut with at least five inches of rib bone left intact. On this cut, we leave the handle-like, french trimmed bone on the meat (called "frenching" if you're among butchers, and the same technique used to create a rack of lamb). This gives the steak its signature flavor and unique look, which resembles a Native American tomahawk axe (hence the name). It can also be referred to as a “tomahawk chop,” “bone-in ribeye,” and “cote du boeuf.”

Tomahawk steak will take longer to cook than Ribeye because the bone serves as an insulator. They taste the same in terms of flavor, but because Tomahawk steaks cook more slowly than Ribeyes, it may be juicer (if left 1-2 minutes longer on the grill).
