The tomahawk steak is an awesome cut of meat that every BBQer should cook up at least once. Not only does it taste amazing, but it looks incredible too. While there are a variety of methods for cooking tomahawk steak, I prefer to reverse sear my steak.
what to look for
Color- Look for steaks that are bright red with no dark or brownish spots. The lights in the meat case are designed to make meat look better. Pull your steak out of the case or away from the others and look at them in the regular light. If your butcher is cutting them for you, you should have an amazingly fresh product.
Marbling- Marbling is the amount of fat laced throughout your meat. You may be trained to think that fat is bad, but you gotta change your state of mind, my friend. The marbled fat in a steak means flavor. Yummy, delicious, melt in your mouth flavor. For rib-eye steaks, I always try and pick a steak with a large spinalis muscle on the top part of the steak and a well-marbled eye in the center
