This is my favorite cut of meat if you want to do a real steak. There's no F'ing around when you get the tomahawk cut.

Amen brother!!!

We do this about twice a year. My buddy cooks them fucking perfect medium rare. Light cracked pepper, generous sea salt (or kosher salt, can't remember). First time he cooked these up. I proposed to him.

If you slather your steaks with rock salt for about 20 minute on a surface where it can drain (like on an oven rack over your sink) then brush all the salt off and season it with whatever else you want (other than salt) almost any cut of steak will be delicious. It's a weird way to break down the proteins that hold the steak together and makes even cheap steak taste like steakhouse supersteak (of course any RibEye is delicious so good meat done with this trick will be great)

Are you sure those were dry aged 28 days? I only ask because true dry-aging discolors the meat as it drys out, thus concentrating flavor.

Wet aging starts with vacuuming sealing the beef, thus keeping the meat moist, though less flavorful than dry-aged beef.

Examples of dry aged:

And wet aged:

Here is dry aged, from 1 day to 60 days:

And finally wet and dry aged, side by side. Both have been aged about the same period of time:

It could just be your photo, but the vaccum packing also leads me to believe it was wet aged.

Seriously. I am craving a big ass ribeye with a side of creamed spinach and an equally big ass Napa cab now.

@pokerZombie........

My buddy gets them from here http://fairwaypacking.com/. This is pulled directly from their site. Its all I know.

How It Works The reason dry aged beef is so amazing is that aging allows natural enzymes to breakdown the hard connective tissue in meats and for water to evaporate away concentrating the flavor.
Dry aging at Fairway is done by racking meat in a controlled, closely monitored environment, and refrigerated environment. The temperature needs to stay between 36-32 degrees. Too warm and the meat will spoil too cold and it will freeze stopping the aging process. Dry aging beef also needs humidity of about 80 percent to reduce water loss. Too high or too low can affect yields considerably.
To control bacteria you need a constant flow of air all around the meat which means it needs to be racked in a well ventilated space. In our dry aging room we have 6 industrial fans that constantly create a hurricane type wind. At Fairway we take it a step further by having ultra violet rays in our room to also help kill off bacteria.
For aging to properly improve the quality of a cut of meat, it should contain substantial marbling. This means fat in the beef distributed evenly. For the best experience only the highest grades of beef will be aged in our room here at Fairway.
Aging steaks to an art takes about 11 days before you see any improvement in the flavor of the meat. After that the flavor continues to intensify. At Fairway we have a minimum 28 day aging program. We feel that this will provide our customers with the best piece of beef they have ever eaten.
Just when we thought you couldn’t make dry aging beef any better than aging it in a controlled, closely watched and refrigerated environment we found a way to do it. Our state of the art room is equipped with a Himalayan salt wall. The salt acts as a natural purifier that helps control the humidity as well as season the air giving the beef even more flavor.
Fairway believes that this is the red carpet beef of the future. We take pride in our aging program every step of the way to assure the greatest steaks.

He used a reverse sear method. Tied them up, salted over a cooling rack. Then cooked on same cooling rack in the oven at 270 for about 50 minutes. Pulled them out, let them rest for 10 minutes, then applied the sear using a cast iron pan.

I have often done the reverse, sear on the grill (also adds smoky flavor) then finished in the oven. Never tried the other way around. It looks perfect! Mrs. Zombie is on her way to the store to pick up steaks now.

Between her, mine, and Mr. Tree's reaction, I'm guessing Tommy should get a kick-back from the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. Way to support PCF!

The steak looks fantastic, but we are having another beef product tonight. Ribs coated in "treehouse" rub and ready to go on the smoker.

I've recently come to the realization that for ribs I actually prefer beef to pork. Meatier and have a more satisfying flavor IMO

What does he do with the dressing, does he give out the recipe for the dressing? I'd like that. I am a huge fan of blue cheese. I'd like to experiment with that.

You can't beat good ribeyes!

Do you make the rub, or buy it?
