Description

Cut from the premium rib section, our ribeye filets are what most beef lovers consider the perfect balance of rich flavor and tender bite. The naturally generous marbling makes this a flavorful and juicy cut that is the very definition of “steak.” We hand trim these beautiful boneless cuts so they’re easy to prepare in your kitchen and perfect for the grill.

Beef Grading 101

This steak is USDA Choice, the second highest level of marbling recognized by the USDA.

Beef sold in the U.S. is graded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are eight total grades and Choice is the second highest level

The USDA describes Choice as “high quality, but has less marbling than Prime” which means our beef at this level is excellent. Whenever possible, we work to use beef from the top one third of Choice for the highest quality possible within the grade.

Marbling, or intramuscular fat, is the most important factor used to grade beef in the U.S. and around the world. This is determined by a visual inspection of the amount and distribution of intramuscular fat between the 12th and 13th rib. Historically, this single inspection provides a correct indicator of the entire carcass.

Rib-Primal-Cropped

Ribeyes, including our ribeye filets, are extracted from the rib primal which spans ribs six through twelve. Located between the chuck and loin primals, this section is literally at the center of the coveted “middle meats”. This is where the flagship cuts that are the foundation of steakhouse menus can be found. The ribeye filet is cut from the longissimus dorsi muscle, the large center of a classic ribeye steak.

Fast fact: The complete rib primal is identified by the number 103 by butchers and meat experts. The ribeye filet is cut from the beef rib, ribeye or 112C.
