If meat is your thing, we’ve got the perfect tomahawk steak recipe for your next gathering. With carefully selected spices and an array of fresh vegetables, we’ve prepared a feast for the hungry. So, roll up your sleeves and let's get serious about braaiing.


2x 700g tomahawk steaks 

500g seasonal vegetables 

500g butter 

250ml truffle oil 

20g rosemary 

20g thyme 

10g salt 

10g pepper 

10g Cajun spice


  1.  Start with generously seasoning the steaks with salt, pepper and cajun spice.
  2. Next, gently baste the steaks with the truffle oil.
  3. Once well-covered in oil, rub the meat with the last bit of dry ingredients: rosemary and thyme.
  4. Leave the steaks to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Cut your vegetables into large chunky pieces.
  6. Once your braai is hot, braai the steak for approximately 4 minutes on each side, along with the seasonal vegetables. Gradually turn the veggies until golden and soft.
  7. Rest the meat in a dish with butter for 5 minutes. 
  8. Add the vegetables to the dish and serve.


Tip 01 Tip 01

Always make sure your steak is at room temperature before braaing. Braaing or frying it from cold will stop the heat from penetrating to the middle.

Tip 02 Tip 02

To grill your 2.5 cm thick steak to rare, you need to cook it for 1-2 minutes each side, letting it rest for 6-8 minutes. For a medium-rare, cook it for 2-2.5 minutes each side, and for well-done, cook it for 4.5 minutes each side, letting it rest for 1 minute.

Tip 03 Tip 03

If you don’t have truffle oil, extra-virgin olive oil is a good substitute because it has roughly the same consistency and texture.
