Optional extra:

  • A variety of vegetables to barbecue. Some suggestions include shallots, mixed onions, eggplants, zucchinis 


  1. Remove the tomahawk steak from the fridge to bring to room temperature then coat with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  2. To barbecue the tomahawk steak, set up your barbecue and cook the steak on both sides for a minimum of 10-12 minutes each side (a large steak will need more time). If you’re using a barbecue with charcoal, make sure to move the steak around so that the heat travels around the steak evenly, cooking it through as evenly as possible. Once the steak is cooked, set aside and cover with foil or a large plate, and let it rest. 
  3. While the steak is cooking or resting prepare the salsa and salad. To prepare the salsa, remove the seeds from the capsicum and chilli then finely dice. Remove the ends of the fresh coriander then finely slice the coriander stalks and leaves. Remove the ends of the shallots and finely slice the shallots. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and season with apple cider vinegar, olive oil and salt. Mix through well and set aside. 
  4. For the salad, slice the cherry tomatoes in half and slice the red onion. Place into a salad bowl along with the mixed leaves and season with olive oil and salt. 
  5. Whilst the barbecue is on, cook the additional vegetables by seasoning with olive oil and salt then cook the vegetables on all sides. 
  6. To serve, carve the tomahawk steak into thin slices and top with the fresh salsa. Serve with salad and optional vegetables. 


Prep time: 30 minutes.
