A question you may hold is why use a Tomahawk steak? Well Tomahawk steaks are very tender cuts that hold a rich buttery flavor, sorta like the Chardonnay of the steak world. Because this is a ribeye cut, that section of the cow collects more intramuscular fat which creates the beautiful marbling of the steak and helps give it’s rich buttery flavor. This is going to play well with our Yellow Mustard that’ll leave a more acidic tart flavor that the Soy Sauce will then mellow out with it’s salty, sweet, little bitter taste. Both of these are going to tenderize the meat as the steak soaks them in. When we pop that trigger finger with a generous portion of Dan-O’s Chipotle Seasoning, we’re going to create a meat that’s hard to beat with a spicy, sweet and smokey kick.
One of the most important steps of this recipe, that is often skipped, is letting the meat rest for 10 minutes. If you cut into this steak immediately then you’re defeating all the hard work you just did. The rest period for a steak gives it time to redistribute the juices, if you cut straight into it then all the juices just run out of it and leave the meat chewy and sad. But give this beauty time to rest, and you'll be rewarded with one of the richest, juiciest steaks you'll ever have.
