Let’s dive into specific details below:
Now, I love any kind of beef ribeye, but steer clear of the cheaper cuts like the tenderloin, or even the flank steak. It will simply not cook well and it will become overcooked and dry, if you don’t take the time to tenderize it right. However, if you want to know how to cook a tomahawk steak on a Weber grill, keep reading and learn how to cook a ribeye steak the right way.
Let’s start with some basics. First, when grilling, avoid using any kind of tongs for gripping the meat. Instead, use a pair of wire gloves. The reason I recommend using gloves is that the thin fillet like strips of meat will cook quickly and you won’t have to worry about it burning on your fingers if you happen to touch it!
When you flip your hickory steak, make sure you do it quickly and without flipping it upside down. This is what causes the outside to dry and turn rubbery. If you flip your steak in this manner, it will release the juices that are inside the steak. The more rubbery the meat becomes, the less of a steak it will be and the longer it will take to cook.
When your steak reaches internal temperature, cover it loosely with aluminum foil. This helps keep the juices from escaping and keeps the juices from boiling out of the steak. Wait about 2 minutes before removing the foil, so that the juices have time to circulate within the meat. Do not open the foil during this time. Let the steak sit for five minutes to allow the juices to circulate.
Now it’s time to slice the meat. To get the best results from a tomahawk steak, you should try to slice it straight across instead of slicing it crosswise. A crosswise slice can make the steak more puffy and difficult to cook and can also cause the meat to become dry in some areas. Just remember that the goal of this cooking technique is to make the ribeye meat as tender as possible.
You can cook a tomahawk steak another way, by using a hot grill to cook it. Place the meat on the outside of the grill and allow it to cook just like a regular barbecue. You may find that you need a couple of skewers or barbeque skewers to complete the cooking process. Be sure to use charcoal or gas grill lighter fluid to ensure that your grill is properly seasoned.
Tomahawk steaks can be served as is or with a variety of sauces. My personal favorite is a blend of Worcestershire sauce and garlic. To make the sauce, simply combine four to five cups of Worcestershire sauce with one tablespoon of chopped fresh garlic and a quarter teaspoon of salt. Place the steak on top of the sauce and let it cook for two minutes until the steak is done.
Some people prefer to wrap their steak in aluminum foil and then place it under the grill for a sweet, crispy treat. However, if you do choose this method, make sure to purchase good quality foil. If you buy foil that has been cheaply made, you might find that it doesn’t hold up to the heat of the Weber grill and that the meat will not cook evenly. For this reason, I would recommend that you purchase a good foil from a reputable online retailer.
Tomahawk steaks are usually topped off with a sauce of your choice. Most people go for the barbecue sauce – but if you don’t have a favorite, you can add a barbecue sauce of your choice to the meat when you are ready to cook it. To cook a tomahawk steak, you will want to add the steak to a pot of hot, boiling water. Once the steak has reached its maximum temperature, you will then add the barbecue sauce. Do not wait to let the sauce boil as it will burn easily. Once the steak is done, just remove it from the pot and place it on the counter to sit while you prepare the rest of the meal.
Tomahawk steaks are usually quite tender. You should be able to poke and prod them just about every so often to make sure that they don’t get overcooked. If you want to cook the steaks faster, you can also place them on the hot coals of your grill. However, be careful that you do not ignite the coals as this will also cause the meat to become overcooked. This is one of the great benefits of having a Weber grill – you can turn your backyard into an outdoor kitchen in a matter of minutes!
When you are ready to take that meaty grill to the next level of grilling, you might want to learn how to cook a tomahawk steak. There is a method to cooking a tomahawk steak on a modern grill and it isn’t as complicated as some people make it out to be. It just takes a little bit of practice and a willingness to try a new type of grill to find the right temperature and cook your steak to perfection.
Most tomahawk steaks are large and have to be grilled outside on an open grate. This is because the steak tends to get a bit gray before it’s ready. This is a normal side effect of cooking a large cut of meat on an open flame. This is just another reason why it’s best to learn how to cook a tomahawk steak on a Weber gas grill. Here is your simple guide on how to cook a tomahawk steak on a Weber gas grill.
You’ll start off by making sure that the direct heat of the grill is on the exterior. This means that you should not place your steak on top of a foil or plastic pan. It will simply burn the meat. Instead, place the steak directly on the hot coals. Don’t place any other type of food on the steaks either.
Place a single layer of indirect heat over the hot coals. Keep in mind that cooking times may vary depending on the size of your steak. The best way to judge is to have your hand underneath the steaks to feel for firmness. Large, or thicker pieces will cook faster than thin or medium-sized pieces.
You will want to raise the temperature to approximately 150 degrees. Let the steak finish cooking for about five minutes before removing it from the grill. If you wish, you can also cook the garlic first. Using a wooden spoon, poke holes in the garlic and use it as a tong guide to remove it from the grill. Just be sure that it is completely removed before removing the steak from the grill.
To cook the tomahawk steak, place the steak on the side of the grill that has the most direct heat. Add a clove of garlic and flip to allow the steak to brown. You can easily tell when the steak is done when it is a rich brown color. Use your fork to help push the garlic out of the steak, but be careful not to touch the bone. Continue cooking the steak until it is almost completely done, at which time you can remove it from the grill and cut into thin slices to serve.
Make sure to allow the steak enough time to rest in the juices. Thoroughly cover the meat in the marinade, then continue to grill to cook the steak through. Depending on your preference, you can add soy sauce, sesame oil, or vinegar to the marinade to enhance the taste of your grilled steak. If you are planning to make a grilled steak a regular part of your meal planning routine, be sure to purchase good cuts of meat that will grill to perfection.
Although this type of meat does not come particularly cheap, it is a well-loved cut of meat that pairs very nicely with many different recipes. In fact, tomahawk steak is so versatile that it pairs very nicely with ribs, steaks, as well as chicken and even pork. For chicken lovers, you can bake or broil your tomahawk steak, or cut it into thin strips and roast them for an interesting chicken recipe. For beef lovers, you can slice it thinly against the grain or slice it into thick patties for a steak dinner that is both unique and delicious. Your choice of cuts will depend on whether you want to make it a sandwich, a meal for one, or another kind of meatloaf that people will rave about.
