Visually, the Tomahawk ribeye with mushroom goat cheese sauce is delightful. The steak alone often elicits “wows” from guests and family alike. When properly handled and presented mindfully, you’ll be drooling long before service.
My recipe takes the LINK Tomahawk ribeye to a new level by using sous vide. Yep, it’s fancy but worthwhile. A beautiful cut of meat deserves a little tender romancing.
What is Sous Vide?
Sous vide cooking provides precise temperature control that you cannot get in other cooking methods. Because the sous vide bag exposes the steak on all sides, you are ensured of consistent results. Additionally, you lose no juices. They stay inside the sous vide bag, keeping the meat moist.
What’s the best part? You set it up and let it go. Sous Vide methods do not require constant monitoring.
What is a Tomahawk Ribeye?
Basically, what you have here is a ribeye steak with the bone remaining intact. Tomahawk steak has great marbling, and the impressive size means COME HUNGRY!

PitMaster’s Memo: The Morel of the Story
If you’re unfamiliar with morel mushrooms, you’re in for a surprise. Where some mushroom varieties seem slimy, morels have a meaty texture. Better still, they are rich in zinc, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Flavor-wise you’ll find the earth and nutty, with the darker morels carrying a hint of smokiness.
