Snake River Farms Black Grade Cap of Ribeye
The Cap of Ribeye is the most prized Snake River Farms American Wagyu beef cut. This is the same rare and delectable steak served by prestigious Michelin-starred restaurants in the U.S. The Cap of Ribeye is also known as the deckle steak, dorsi cap, spinalis ribeye or the ribeye cap among true beef aficionados. In France it goes by the name of calotte steak and in more scientific circles it is known as the spinalis dorsi. Regardless of its name, the Cap of Ribeye is a delicacy that really has to be tasted to be believed. The flavor is at once familiar, unique and like nothing you've ever eaten before.
We’re proud to offer this uncommon product, but please note it is only available in limited quantities. This is a natural product and the size will vary from cut to cut. We sort the Cap of Ribeyes into two sizes - small and large. This is the large Cap of Ribeye with an approximate weight of 20 ounces. We make every effort to ensure this is a minimum weight, but occasionally there may be a Cap that is slightly smaller. In many cases, the unit size will far exceed 20 ounces.
Steak Temperature GuideHere are the magic numbers you’ll need to determine when your steak is cooked to the degree of doneness you most prefer. The internal temp is when the steak should be removed from the heat. The steak will continue to cook so the temperature will rise during the rest period.
|Rare||Red center, very cool||110°F|
|Medium Rare||Red, warm center||120°F|
|Medium Well||Pink center||140°F|
|Well||No pink||Not recommended|
*Consuming raw or undercooked meats may increase your risk of foodborne illness. The USDA recommends an internal temp of 145°F and resting for at least 3 minutes.

A New Experience!
Made this yesterday. Put in a low heat approx. 225 on my wood fired smoker. Pulled it off at about internal temp of 124. Then reversed seared it over the open oak wood fire of the smoker box.
Words can't describe the flavor imparted from this cut of beef. Don't know how I'm ever going to go back to grocery store beef! Thanks SRF!
