    Tomahawk term?

    To me - the so-called Tomahawk Steak is just a Rib Eye with the bone.

    Can anyone give some idea of when this Tomahawk term started?

    ++

    I would say that the 'meat people' benefit significantly from this term. I did some analysis of a few 'Tomahawk steaks' and found that the bone was about 25% of the gross weight - and yet the price was about the same as a Rib Eye WITHOUT the bone. Nice price for soup bones!

    A ribeye with the bone in is known as a Cowboy steak around here. A tomahawk is an extra long bone and can be seen on a ribeye or a veal chop even. YMMV.

    OK - bone shorter with Cowboy

    But when did the term 'Tomahawk' begin?

    And wonderig - has anyone noticed a significant difference in price (lower) when buying a Tomahawk cf. usual Rib Eye?

    Because of it's long bone the cut can resemble an actual tomahawk. When that started or by whom IDK. Here's a short read on the cut.
