My First Tomahawk

Postby FatherOfPugs » Tue Feb 18, 2020 12:08 pm

With the weather being absolutely gorgeous out Sunday and Monday, I spent some time outdoors with my Weber.

Sunday evening dinner, my first attempt at a tomahawk. Got it from Costco, gorgeous piece of meat.

Sous vide it first, then finished it on the grill for a nice sear. Turned out pretty well, but I think I need more practice!

Looks great to me, not sure what you need practicing on but I understand needing to perfect something.

More practice = eating more steak…so by all means keep practicing! Although it looks really good from here.

Did you vac seal or bag? Just curious about the bone.

If that's practice I'll gladly be the one who tests the meat.

It won’t be the last one you eat. It looks great.

Thanks all for the feedback! I look forward to perfecting this!

I bagged it, squeezed out as much air as I could, got the bag as tight around the bone as I could (went higher up on the bone) and then used some heat resistant tape on the outside of the bag to secure it to keep moisture and heat in. I put a sprig of rosemary (from wild growing bush at my house) and a bayleaf in, and wow, great flavor!

I have zero luck with sous vide beef. I use my sous vide machine probably exclusively for scallops now. Tomahawks are as great to grill as they are to serve & eat.Image

Looks great to me. Hard to beat steak with a handle.
