Dry-Aged 5th Rib Tomahawk
A tomahawk is a bone in ribeye that has gained popularity because the beef is mouthwatering and the giant bone offers an extraordinary presentation. Enter one of our newer offerings, what we call the 5th Rib Tomahawk. We get these beauties our friends at Seven Hills Foods and they are locally sourced from farmers right here in Virginia. This steak is technically not a ribeye by USDA standards; those can only come from ribs six through twelve. The "5th rib ribeye” is actually the end cut off the chuck portion of a steer referred to as the chuck eye, with the massive 5th rib bone left intact for extra flavor and visual appeal.
Because of how close the chuck eye is to the ribeye, it’s similar in in both taste and tenderness. The chuck eye boasts that really beefy flavor and is infinitely more tender than a standard chuck steak. To top it off, Seven Hills takes extra time to dry-age each of these 5th rib tomahawks for added tenderness and flavor.
So why not just get a ribeye? Well, a chuck eye steak offers our customers more than just an intense beef flavor, it offers some serious value as well; what you might give up in taste and tenderness (it isn’t much), you gain in cost savings because of our aggressive pricing on this quality steak.
We’re offering 5th rib tomahawks at $15.99 per pound. Keep in mind that these cuts are not as readily available as traditional ribeye because only two available per steer. If you don’t see any in the case just ask one of our butchers because we may have some in the back!
Follow our cooking instructions below and you’ll be blown away by this amazing uncommon cut of meat. Stop by soon and ask about it, we can’t wait to hear your feedback!

I bought one of these to cook for July 4th and did a reverse sear on it using the oven and then a cast iron pan. I finished it with a rosemary, thyme, garlic, and butter basting. Amazing flavor and one of the best steaks I have ever had. For the price I don’t know if you can get a better steak.
