Heads Up - 1Kg Tomahawk Steak for £12.99 @ Aldi from this Thursday

LocalFound 23rd May 2017
From Thu 25 May, Aldi is offering tomahawk steaks for £12.99 per kilogram in stores.

Tomahawk steak
The beast of a beef, which is a cut of rib-eye that includes the rib bone and named tomahawk because its shape resembles an axe, can cost about £65 per kilogram in a top restaurant. The next cheapest we found at a supermarket was £26.99 per kilogram at Waitrose*.

Aldi says the tomahawk steaks, which you can get from 1kg on the bone, are available in all its UK stores, but will only be around while stocks last – so make no mis-steak, you'll need to get moo-ving if you want to claim your steak in this offer.

These are quite thick.

This is probably something the home chef will want to cook slowly in the oven before cooking in oil in a hot pan to get a decent crust.

By cooking in the oven and using a meat thermometer you will get a better chance of getting it cooked to a "doneness" you want with out turning the outside to charcoal.

Secondly, if you wanted medium or well done on this thing and you cook it straight on a high heat then you will end up with a "resting" time so long you it will be frozen again! Cooking in the oven slowly, at a low temperature will reduce the rest time considerably.

Thanks, I'll get a couple for the weekend.
Should be nice starters.
Don't think I'll be bothering. Never heard of it before, but I know I'm usually way behind the curve with most things. Love a bit of rib eye, but paying extra for a bone? Nah, sounds a bit Emperor's new clothes to me.
Good post will be in the queue at 8 am as usual
Come out swinging

It's £12.99 a kilo. Seems reasonable. Similar cut to T bone.

The good thing about this cut is that it can be used as a weapon if overcooked to punish the person in charge of pots and pans.

I had this in a restaurant - they obviously included the weight of the bone in the description as there was little meat there. I reckon the "flavour" experience isn't worth the hassle of home cooking (that bone will get in the way!)
Heat added OP, I'll stick to Porterhouse though...
the one I bagged from Morrison's last year on the £15 Fathers Day deal was tremendous
YABBA DABBA DOO!
Very popular at Ruth's Chris steakhouse in the US, we ate at one in New Orleans last year. My Brother had the 40oz Tomahawk at $115 (£88) with tax & tip about $150 (£112)
I had the 16oz Ribeye at $48, most expensive steaks I have eaten but by far the best.

So was ribeye a few years back - no one had heard of it either.

Meat off the bone is generally more flavoursome.

Behind the curve!! lol the dinosaurs eat these steaks in every cartoon..
Last time this offer was on nearly all the shops ran out straight away due to the limited quantity.
Steak well done it's a crime, please don't, just don't.
Queued up outside Aldi this morning in the expectation that, like many of their special deals they would only have 5-6 and all would be gone by 8:10am. Was pleasantly surprised as they had 4 cases! Got the smallest one I could find and that was still 41oz!!
Queued up outside my local Aldi and they only had one case (of 8 I think). I bought 4 and the 2 guys behind me bought the rest!
So went early no q and no tomahawk steaks. Asked for them bloke disappeared out the back came back with four... After he said none had been delivered.....
Got 2 bad boys 53 and 50oz. Can feel the meat sweats already
I went, there was a choice of 4, cheapest 20 quid, all looked very fatty, dont think its worth it for the size of the bone you are paying for also!
Just cooked the first of my 4 tonight. Wow. What can I say. Smell and taste were fantastic. Thank you Aldi. Hope we don't have to wait another year!
