To create this culinary masterpiece, you will need:

  • 1 3-pound tomahawk beef steak
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Prepare the Steak

  • Remove the tomahawk beef steak from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to ensure even cooking.
  • Preheat your grill to high heat, around 450°F to 500°F.
  • Brush both sides of the steak with olive oil to prevent sticking.

2. Season the Steak

  • Rub the minced garlic evenly over the surface of the steak.
  • Sprinkle the dried thyme, rosemary, salt, and black pepper over both sides of the steak, pressing the seasonings into the meat to adhere.

3. Grill the Steak

  • Place the seasoned tomahawk beef steak on the preheated grill.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare doneness, or adjust the cooking time according to your desired level of doneness.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature reaches 130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium, or 150°F for medium-well.
  • Once the steak reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the grill and let it rest for 10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.

4. Serve and Enjoy

  • Transfer the grilled tomahawk beef steak to a cutting board and let it rest for a few minutes.
  • Slice the steak against the grain into thick, juicy pieces.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh green salad.
