The tomahawk steak is cut from the beef’s rib and the extra bone sticking out from the meat makes it extra juicy and presentable.  This cut of meat got its name from its resemblance to the Indian axe called ‘Tomahawk’. Tomahawks are best cooked on the grill, but they may also be pan-seared, oven-broiled, or smoked.
