Tomahawk Steak

Just for fun, I went out back to check to see if this rather large 2.75 lb. Tomahawk steak I got would fit on the small….um, NO GO~

That was OK because I looked up and saw a wall of rain coming towards me, so I was about to get soaked!

So I went downstairs and lit the large, since I knew the steak would definitely fit and I could be in the garage and out of the coming monsoon.

But first, a crab came for a visit.

He ran over to the plant edging to hide, but I could still see him, little bugger…

First on the egg, some summer corn, and then the tomahawk goes on~ 350 degree dome...

I had no idea how long to cook it for, so I just guessed.

Dinner is served… with Old Bay Key West pink shrimp, sautéed mushrooms, and a wedge salad with bacon and tomatoes and a homemade Ranch dressing ~ Oh, and I made a garlic parsley butta to top the steak ~

It was restaurant quality...And the steak was accidentally perfectly cooked!

Not too shabby...Thanks for lookin!

    @Florida Grillin Girl  What species of crab was that little fella?

    I've seen that somewhere before. =)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    You are a brave woman to cook a $50 steak without a thermapen...I can usually tell more or less by feel/touch, but always like to measure twice and cut once.

    Very nice job.

    Great cook right there across the board.  BTW- nice work with the nails as well. =)

  • @smokingal - thanks for the compliment.
    I believe the crab is an Asian shore crab.
