Grilled Tomahawk Steak


  • 1 2-lb (900 g) beef rib steak 2 inches (5 cm) thick with a bone about 12 inches (30 cm) long (tomahawk)
  • 1 1/2 tsp basic dry rub (see recipe)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tbsp minced chives
  • Fleur de sel, to taste


  1. On a plate, rub the meat on both sides with the dry rub. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to medium-high. Oil the grate.
  3. Brush the meat with the oil. Place on the grill, close the lid and cook for 18 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the centre of the meat reads 118°F (48°C) for rare. Turn a few times during cooking. Remove from the heat and place on a clean plate. Cover lightly with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Turn the burners on the grill to high.
  5. Dab the meat with paper towels and place it back on the grill. Cook for 1 minute per side to obtain grill marks.
  6. Place the butter on the steak and finish with the chives and fleur de sel. Add pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
