This is a recipe from Walla Walla Steak Co from our Walla Walla episode! This is enough for 2-4 people depending on the size of steak and appetites (I usually recommend at least 1/2 lb per person).

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 1.5-2.5 lb hatchet steak (aka bone-in rib-eye aka tomahawk aka côte de boeuf) 
  • salt & pepper


  1. Pre heat oven to 500°
  2. Pre-heat grill or cast iron to VERY HOT
  3. Rub steak with neutral oil, such as rice bran vegetable. Season steak with liberal coating of salt & pepper, or your favorite steak seasoning (I recommend a mix of salt, pepper, lawry's, and garlic powder). Don't skimp! A thick cut of beef needs a lot of seasoning.
  4. Sear on each side of steak until crust forms, approximately 2-4 minutes per side. If using grill, quarter turn half way through each side to achieve criss cross grill marks.
  5. Put in oven until internal temperature with a meat thermometer reads 125° for medium rare (about 10-15 minutes, but check often so not to overcook).
  6. Take out and rest steak for 10 minutes.
  7. Slice against the grain, and serve alone, or with chimichurri, bearnaise, or demi glace.


Pair with a big hearty red like, L'Ecole's Ferguson Estate Bordeaux Blend.
