The Ultimate Tomahawk Steak Dinner
The ultimate tomahawk steak dinner is one harmonious symphony of a meal you can easily orchestrate at home. From the showstopping steak, to gourmet sides, and the perfect bottle of red, here’s how to create the ultimate tomahawk steak dinner at home.
Step 1: Preparing Tomahawk Steak
There are many ways to cook a tomahawk steak. No matter which method you choose, be sure to start with a 2-inch-thich tomahawk steak from State Street Meats to ensure the best results.
Because a tomahawk steak is so flavorful on its own, it doesn’t need much more than a pinch of salt and pepper to create a luxurious meal. You can also top it with a simple homemade compound butter to take your tomahawk steak dinner to the next level.
Tomahawk Steak Compound Butter
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Simply mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Once well combined, place butter on a piece of plastic wrap and roll into a log. Twist each end to seal and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Slice into 1/4-inch-thick rounds and place atop warm steak just before serving.
Step 2: Best Side Dishes for Tomahawk Steak
While the tomahawk steak is certainly the centerpiece, here’s a roundup of gourmet sides to help round out your meal.
- Lyonnaise Potatoes
- Creamed Spinach and Parsnips
- Seared Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme

Step 3: Best Wines with Tomahawk Steak
Tomahawk steaks pair well with full-bodied red wines. Many chefs and sommeliers recommend pairing this cut with a Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz/Syrah as the high tannins present in these varietals help to cut through the juiciness and fattiness of the steak. These top-rated wines pair perfectly with tomahawk steak:
