Grilled Tomahawk Steak with Chimichurri
Grilled Tomahawk Steak rubbed with Beef Rub and then perfectly char-grilled, so a deep crust is formed. The meat is generously marbled, there is a good amount of fat through the steak and when grilled, creates an incredibly tender and flavorful steak. The bone of the tomahawk steak delivers an intense flavor experience and is quite impressive to look at.
Serve the grilled steak with a green and zesty Chimichurri sauce.
Chimichurri is one of our most loved spice blends. It is a South and Central American sauce used for grilled meat. It originates from Argentina but is also used in Uruguay and in countries as far north as Nicaragua, Colombia and Mexico.
