If you had it, you certainly wouldn't have forgotten, as it is the ultimate 'wow-factor' steak. It is named Tomahawk as it allegedly resembles the 'Tomahawk Axe'.
The Tomahawk cut based on the thickness of the rib bone and is usually 5cm/2 inches thick, weighing approx 1.4 kg. A Tomahawk makes an ideal sharing steak for a special occasion or romantic meal, as it can easily feed two people. If you like bone-in steaks such as T-bone or Porterhouse, you’ll love the Tomahawk Steak as the primary muscle is the longissimus dorsi (back muscle), which is also the main muscle on the T-bone and Porterhouse.
