Rib Eye Steak
Full Flavoured Boneless Rib Steak
This steak is enriched considerably from a nugget of natural fat, the ‘eye,’ to keep the meat succulent, while it promises a full flavoured treat as the fat caramelises and tenderises the meat when cooked. Ideal for both weekend treats and midweek meals, our British Rib Eyes are sourced exclusively from grass fed herds reared on lush pastures, before being dry aged to enhance the luscious qualities of the steak meat.
Also known as Scotch Fillet, the Rib Eye Steak is taken from the rib primal of a beef animal with the bone removed. It's traditionally known as a butcher's cut because the butcher would reserve certain tasty cuts for himself, the Rib Eye being one of them. As it comes from the upper rib cage, the muscles are underused with more fat, promising tender and well marbled meat.
A sure fire treat, and a good introduction to premium grass fed native breed and free range steak due to the deep flavour the Rib Eye promises. The difference with regular meat when compared with this butcher's steak is instantly recognisable. Serve with home made chips, a summer salad, and a good dollop of hollandaise sauce.
