Las Vegas is the capitol of decadence and there have been many instances where larger-than-life dishes satiated our eyes before they melted in our mouths. One such dish is a massive 16-pound Tomahawk Crown Roast found on the menu of MB Steak at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas that may or may not be a boss from Shadow of the Colossus.
The luxury steakhouse serves the $1,200 meal with a table side presentation, designed for 10 to 12 diners. Executive chef Patrick Munster slow roasts the 16-pounds of beef overnight at a low temperature to keep the cut as succulent as possible. It's then cooked to a medium rare and carved in front of patrons in a spectacle of beef and bone.
MB's tomahawk dinner comes with a selection of side dishes that are shared family style including lobster mac & cheese, creamed corn with king crab, maitake mushrooms with aged goat cheese, and creamed spinach with a poached egg and truffle gouda.
If you're heading to Vegas and want to share this experience with a dozen of your closest friends and meat lovers, just be sure to call ahead. The tomahawk roast requires a minimum of 72 hours of advanced notice.
