Turn heads with our tender and juicy tomahawk steaks! Not for the faint of heart, this elevated cut of meat is just as stunning as it is delicious. A tomahawk steak is a bone-in ribeye that is carefully trimmed along the naturally curved bone. The shape resembles a tomahawk ax, hence the name. Given their size, there’s no denying that whipping up these massive and meaty steaks can be a bit overwhelming. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered with some of our best tips and tricks on how to take on the tomahawk!

How to Cook

Thanks to the tomahawk’s large bone, they’re typically juicer and maintain more flavor when marinated. From our signature Bristol Farm’s marinades to a homemade recipe made with balsamic vinegar and soy sauce, marinating your tomahawk will take the taste to the next level. You can also keep things simple by seasoning your steaks with salt, pepper, and garlic powder at least two hours before cooking.

Next, it’s time to turn up the heat! Grilling is our favorite way to prepare a tasty tomahawk, and using a reverse sear method cooks your tomahawks to perfection every time. This slow and controlled cooking method is a bit tedious, but it ensures you won’t overcook your meat. Once all is said and done, expect a juicy and tender tomahawk that everyone will love. Check out our Grilled Reverse Seared Tomahawk Steak recipe for some step by step instructions!

Perfect Pairings

An elevated cut of meat like the tomahawk deserves an elevated glass of wine to match. Pair your tomahawk with a dry and heavy-bodied red like Cabernet Sauvignon and feel your taste buds take flight. The crunchiness of grilled asparagus adds a textural contrast to the tender tomahawk, while creamy mashed potatoes are a match made in heaven for any cut of steak. Simply pour a glass, get out the grill, and let your taste buds do the talking!
