How To Cook Reverse-Seared Tomahawk
with Lemon Basil Salsa Verde
Tomahawk Ribeyes are massive steaks that are best prepared using a reverse sear. This is a preparation method where the steak is cooked at a low temperature to ensure it is cooked evenly from edge to edge, then finally seared on a hot grill.
The Ribeye Club walks you through the reverse sear and adds a bright and herbaceous final touch with a Lemon Basil Salsa Verde that pairs beautifully with the deep rich flavor of Tomahawk USDA Black Angus. A perfect way to enjoy a tomahawk ribeye!

Step 1 - If time permits, season the steak the evening before you plan to cook.
Step 2 - Remove the steak from the packaging and pat dry with a paper towel. Season all sides generously with garlic, black pepper, and salt. Place on a cooling rack over a sheet pan to allow the air to circulate, and refrigerate uncovered overnight, for up to 24 hours.
Step 3 - When ready to cook, remove the steak from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 45 minutes.
Step 4 - Preheat your grill or smoker to 225°F.
Step 5 - Insert a probe thermometer if available. Place the steak directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and smoke until the internal temperature reaches 110°F-115°F, 30-60 minutes depending on the thickness of the steak
Step 6 - Remove the steak from the grill and increase the grill temperature to 450°F-500°F and preheat for 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, preheat a large cast iron pan or griddle over medium heat.
Step 7 - Sear the steak directly on the grill grates, turning once, and cook to 130°F or desired internal temperature. The steak will continue to cook as it rests.
Step 8 - Remove the steak from the grill and let rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Top with Lemon Basil Salsa Verde, if desired.
