Reverse Seared Tomahawk Steak with Blak Beef Seasoning

There's nothing quite like biting into a perfectly cooked, juicy and flavorful steak. And when it comes to steak, few cuts are as impressive as a 3-inch thick tomahawk steak. But to truly elevate this cut of beef, you need to employ the reverse sear method – a technique that produces a steak with a perfectly cooked interior and a deliciously caramelized crust.
And if you're looking for a seasoning that will take your reverse seared tomahawk steak to the next level, look no further than Revolution Barbecue's Blak Beef BBQ seasoning. This unique blend of spices features activated charcoal and honey powder, along with garlic, onion, cumin, and black pepper, to create a bold and complex flavor profile that perfectly complements the rich and meaty flavor of the beef.
But what really sets this seasoning apart is the activated charcoal, which not only gives the steak a striking black color, but also helps to create the perfect bark on the outside of the meat. The activated charcoal works by absorbing moisture and drawing out impurities, allowing the surface of the steak to dry out and form a flavorful crust when seared over high heat.And the addition of honey powder adds a touch of sweetness that balances out the savory spices and enhances the natural sweetness of the beef. The end result is a perfectly seasoned tomahawk steak that's bursting with flavor and has a beautifully charred crust – a true showstopper that's sure to impress your guests and satisfy your taste buds.

  • Charcoal grill
  • Wood chips (optional)
  • Digital meat thermometer probe



  • Remove the tomahawk steak from the fridge and let it come to room temperature for about 1 hour.
  • Prepare your charcoal grill for indirect heat by placing a charcoal chimney starter filled with charcoal on one side of the grill.
  • Light the charcoal using a lighter cube or newspaper, and let it burn for about 15-20 minutes until the coals are fully ignited and ashed over. Add some wood chips to the charcoal if desired for a smoky flavor.
  • Season the steak generously on all sides with the Blak Beef BBQ seasoning, making sure to press the seasoning into the meat.
  • Place the steak on the cool side of the grill, away from the direct heat.
  • Insert a digital meat thermometer probe into the thickest part of the steak, making sure it does not touch the bone.
  • Close the lid of the grill and let the steak cook over indirect heat until the internal temperature reaches 110°F for medium-rare, or 120°F for medium. This will take roughly 30-45 minutes depending on the temperature of your grill.
  • Once the desired internal temperature is reached, remove the steak from the grill and set it aside on a plate to rest.
  • While the steak is resting, add more charcoal to the grill if needed and let it burn until it is fully ignited and ashed over.
  • Once the charcoal is ready, place the steak back on the grill over the direct heat.
  • Sear the steak on each side for about 1-2 minutes until a dark crust forms.
  • Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for a 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Enjoy your delicious and perfectly cooked reverse seared tomahawk steak with Revolution Barbecue’s Blak Beef BBQ seasoning!
