Chef Brad Miller’s Reverse Seared Beef Tomahawk Chop
1 24 oz Prime Beef Tomahawk Chop
1 Lemon (Ends Cut Off & Cut in Half)
8 Jumbo Asparagus
3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Chopped Chives
1/2 oz Shiso Leaves
Kosher Salt, Black Pepper, & Maldon Salt
- Preheat the Pellet Grill to 325º. Place the tomahawk on the grates of the grill & close the lid; let it slowly cook until the internal temp is 115-120º for Rare to Medium Rare or 130º for Medium (15-20 minutes). Remove & place on a resting rack. Note: this step can also be done in a traditional oven.
- Turn your Gas Grill burners to high & close the top until it reaches 650-750º. Place the steak on the grates; after about 1 minute, turn 45º. Cook for another minute, then flip & repeat.
- After both sides are seared, place the steak on the resting rack for 2 1/2 minutes, turning & resting again for 2 1/2 minutes. While the steak is resting, season asparagus with a touch of olive oil, kosher salt, & pepper. Place the asparagus & lemons on the grill at medium heat. Gently move asparagus so the hexagonal grates char both sides for about 3 minutes each.
- Cut the bone from the steak and leave on the cutting board. Turn the steak so that it is parallel to the cutting board and cut into 1” thick pieces.
- Arrange the pieces shingled horizontally down the bone mimicking its original shape. Place the asparagus around the steak or in two bunches for presentation. Squeeze one of the halved grilled lemons over the steak and place on the board with the other half for presentation.
- Season the steak with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, Maldon Salt and shiso leaves arranged decoratively. Serves 2-3 per finished steak.
