Why is tomahawk steak expensive and are they worth the price?

What is a tomahawk steak?

There are many different cuts of steak, but one of the more unique variations is the tomahawk steak. The bone-in ribeye steak is carved straight from the ribeye and trimmed using a technique known as Frenching to obtain the cut. This gives the steak its distinctive bone handle, which inspired the name Tomahawk steak, as it resembles a Native American tomahawk axe.

The tomahawk steak is a large and heavy slab of beef which serves two to eight people, making it an excellent choice for your next dinner party. Its dramatic appearance when served adds to the flair of presentation, which is certain to impress your guests.

You can expect to pay a higher price for this wow factor and delicious taste. To find out whether you should splurge on the tomahawk steak and if it is worth the price, continue reading this article.

What contributes to the high price of a tomahawk steak?

High-quality cut

The high quality of the tomahawk steak makes it significantly more expensive than other types of steak. Its juiciness and tenderness are due to the fact that it is cut from the ribeye, which has a higher fat content than other parts of the beef. The marbled fat distributed throughout the meat adds a richness that can be tasted even when cut into thin slices, which will be greatly appreciated by your guests.

Longer preparation time

Another factor that contributes to the high price of tomahawk steak is the amount of time and effort required to prepare and cook it. Because of its size and weight, transforming a ribeye into a tomahawk requires more cooking and butchering time.

So…is it worth it to indulge in a tomahawk steak?

A tomahawk steak’s high-quality cut provides a premium culinary experience. The premium price tag can be justified when you consider the tenderness of the meat and how the butcher has to carve the meat straight from the rib and then carefully trim the bone. Above all, it wouldn’t hurt to treat yourself to some high-quality meat every now and then!
