About cowboy steak
Also known as a tomahawk or bone-in rib-eye steak, the cowboy steak is a large steak that can easily feed two people. The cut comes from the roast at the top of the rib primal. You'll usually find them reaching 2 to 3 inches thick and weighing between 30 to 45 ounces. There's no definite reason behind the meat's name, although some people believe its name comes from when cowboys used to eat this cut of steak with their hands and use the bone as a handle.
Since the cowboy steak has a bone, the flavors within the bone transfer into the steak during the cooking process, all bones have two types of marrow: red and yellow. Red marrow produces red blood cells and is found in the animal's ribs, spines, and skulls. Yellow marrow usually comes from the leg bones and is largely fat. Cowboys used to call yellow marrow "prairie butter," as it gives the meat a smooth and buttery flavor once the steak is cooked.
