How To Cook Your Tomahawk Steak

Also known as the ‘cowboy steak’, Tomahawk is an extra large cut with a buttery soft piece of rib meat with the bone 
making it flavoursome and juicy which has the melt-in-the-mouth effect when cooked right.
This part is taken from the unused part of the ribcage giving it a very meaty cut.
This marvelous cut is  truly worth all the time and patience, as its majestic meaty size makes it perfect for sharing and impressive to look at once plated!
It can be intimidating to buy premium quality steaks and not know how to cook it the way restaurants do.
Don't fret as it's as simple as ABC. All you really need is a meat thermometer, cast iron pan or a grill pan and some butter!
Depending on how you want your steaks done, simply use your meat thermometer to measure how rare or well you want it to be. 
Remember, Steak is best eaten fresh. You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Once you purchase from the butcher shop, it is best to cook within two days otherwise freeze steaks upon purchase to ensure quality when the time comes.
Also resting steaks from the fridge into oom temperature for an hour before cooking is just as important as seasoning your steaks well.

Kosher salt
Optional: thyme leaves and garlic

tablespoons salted butter room temperature
2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoon parsley finely chopped
