Tomahawk Ribeye

With Mojo de Ajo Sauce

Cook Time 2 hours

Serves 4

For the Mojo de Ajo sauce

  • 3 heads garlic
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large limes
  • 2 large oranges
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt, for seasoning

Remove the tomahawk steak from the fridge at least an hour before cooking. Season the steak liberally with Salt Pepper + Chocolate Chile. 


Remove the loose papery skin from the garlic heads, trim off their tops and cover each with about a tablespoon of olive oil. Wrap the garlic in foil.


Set  the smoker/grill to 250 F. Add the garlic bindles and  the steak to the grill and cook for 90 minutes or until the steak  reaches 130 degrees F and the garlic is soft. When it reaches temp, remove the steak from the grill and rest while you make the rest of the mojo de ajo sauce. 


In a small food processor or mortar and pestle, roughly smash the parsley and oregano into a rough paste. Add the juices from both the limes and the orange and mash or pulse to combine. Squeeze the roasted garlic from the heads and add to the processor or pestle. Continue to smash or pulse, adding salt and pepper, until the sauce thickened. Lastly, stream in the 1/2 cup olive oil until you have a thick dressing-like sauce.


Increase the grill to high/500 F and sear the steak for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer steak onto a cutting board and rest 30 minutes. Thickly slice the steak and drizzle with more olive oil, the mojo de ajo sauce and serve with a sprinkle of flaky salt.
