The Ultimate Tomahawk Ribeye Steak Recipe
Introducing the Corriente Tomahawk Ribeye - the king of all backyard grilling sessions. This premium small-batch Corriente beef is known for its tender, juicy, and flavorful qualities. The Tomahawk Ribeye includes the longissimus dorsi (eye of the rib), spinalis dorsi (ribeye cap), and an extra-long bone, making it a true showstopper on your plate.
This local beef is sourced from pasture-raised cattle, ensuring the highest quality and a rich, natural flavor. The cattle are grain-finished, adding to the marbling and enhancing the overall taste sensation. With an average weight of 2.5 pounds, every bite of this Tomahawk Ribeye is a culinary delight.
When it comes to cooking the Tomahawk Ribeye, there are a few key steps to follow to ensure a perfectly cooked, mouthwatering steak. Let's dive into the details:
Step 1: Preparing the Steak
Start by taking the Tomahawk Ribeye out of the refrigerator and allowing it to come to room temperature. This step is crucial to ensure even cooking throughout the steak.
While the steak is coming to room temperature, season it generously with your favorite steak seasoning. A simple combination of salt, pepper, and garlic powder works wonders to enhance the natural flavors of the beef.
Step 2: Preheating the Grill
If you're using a grill to cook your Tomahawk Ribeye, preheat it to medium-high heat. This will create the perfect sear on the outside while keeping the inside tender and juicy.
Ensure that the grill grates are clean and well-oiled to prevent sticking.
Step 3: Cooking the Steak
Place the seasoned Tomahawk Ribeye directly on the preheated grill grates. Close the lid and let it cook for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare doneness.
Remember to resist the temptation to flip the steak too frequently. Allow each side to develop a beautiful crust before flipping it over.
For a more accurate measure of doneness, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Aim for 130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium, and 150°F for medium-well.
Step 4: Resting and Slicing
Once the Tomahawk Ribeye reaches your desired level of doneness, remove it from the grill and transfer it to a cutting board. Let it rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
Resting allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful steak.
When it's time to slice, hold the bone with one hand and use a sharp knife to cut thick slices against the grain. This will ensure maximum tenderness.
Step 5: Serving and Enjoying
Plate the beautifully seared slices of Tomahawk Ribeye and serve them with your favorite side dishes. Whether it's creamy mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, or a fresh garden salad, the options are endless.
Pour yourself a glass of your preferred red wine, gather your loved ones, and savor every bite of this exquisite Tomahawk Ribeye steak.
Additional Tips for the Perfect Tomahawk Ribeye
- For added flavor, marinate the steak for a few hours before grilling. A combination of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and herbs can work wonders.
- If you prefer a smoky flavor, consider using a charcoal grill or adding wood chips to your gas grill.
- Experiment with different seasonings and rubs to create your unique flavor profile. From spicy Cajun blends to aromatic herb rubs, the possibilities are endless.
- Letting the steak rest is crucial to allow the juices to redistribute. This step ensures a more tender and flavorful eating experience.
- Don't forget to sharpen your knife before slicing the Tomahawk Ribeye. A sharp knife will make it easier to achieve clean, precise cuts.
