This rare cut is considered to be the single most delectable and flavorful steak available. Also known as the ribeye cap steak, deckle steak, calotte or spinalis dorsi, it is highly prized by top chefs, beef aficionados, and butchers alike. Surprisingly, a cut this spectacular is not universally known, however anyone who has cut that small morsel of cap from a ribeye realized there’s something special going on.
If you look at a ribeye steak, you’ll see the large eye of meat that’s the center of the cut. Surrounding this center is the spinalis dorsi, or cap of ribeye. We carefully remove this from the entire ribeye roll to produce a beautiful cut that has the tenderness of a filet mignon, the rich marbling of a rib steak, and a mouthwatering flavor and texture all its own. The cap of ribeye is hard to find and is only available in limited quantities.
The cap of ribeye is a natural product and actual weights may vary by +/- .25 pounds.
