The eye-catcher at the barbecue and the highlight in terms of enjoyment. Previously more familiar from beef, the dry-aged version of straw pig has no need to hide either visually or in terms of taste.
What makes our Dry-Aged Tomahawk Steak special?
When you think of dry-aging, beef is probably the first thing that comes to mind. That is certainly true, but there are also fabulous dry-aged cuts of pork. Our Tomahawk Steak from the Austrian Gustino pig is the best example.
The meat is matured on the bone for at least four weeks by our master butchers and thus develops a fabulous aroma. Of course, the quality of the meat is crucial for optimal dry maturation. Therefore, only firm, white and perfectly marbled muscle meat is used.
In the dry-aged version, pork is ideal for grilling or short roasting. This is because the refinement process ensures that the meat always remains juicy and tender, even at high heat.
What is a Tomahawk Steak?
The original Tomahawk Steak is a real heavyweight among steaks, characterised by its long bone! Beautifully marbled and well-done, it is a real "man's steak" and the highlight of every barbecue party.
Perfect for enjoying and showing off a bit - that's part of it, isn't it! The interesting thing? The Tomahawk Steak is not only available from beef, but also from Austrian straw pig. The "pork chop with a handle", so to speak. For our dry-aged version, the meat is dry-aged on the bone for at least four weeks.
For real connoisseurs!
How does the Dry-Aged Tomahawk Steak taste?
Perfectly prepared and matured for at least four weeks, the steak is characterised by its intense colour and yet remains tender to the bite. The Dry-Aged Tomahawk Steak also has a great taste. Here, too, the smoky note develops with a fine, nutty aroma. Absolutely ingenious, we would say!

Herkunft und Haltung
Pigs are extremely intelligent and clean animals. Therefore, species-appropriate and caring rearing is the be-all and end-all for us.
A requirement that is also noticeable in the taste. If you compare pigs from factory farms, for example, one thing is immediately clear: due to the permanent stress, the meat is much firmer, loses a lot of water during roasting and has hardly any flavour of its own.
For us at Fitmeat, this kind of rearing is out of the question for many reasons. We fight for animal welfare and the appreciation of meat products and strictly distance ourselves from immoral factory farming.
After the careful and stress-free individual slaughter of the pigs, our butchers leave the straw pigs to mature on the bone for a few days. The result is juicy and tender pieces of pork with a wonderful aroma.
