What Is A Rib Eye Steak?
Rib Eye Steak is a beef steak sliced from the Rib of a beef animal. In the United States of America, (US), The term “Rib Eye” refers to the section of the steak that is removed form the bone.
However, outside the US, especially in Australia, we usually call Rib Eye Steak the cut that is still attached to the bone, whilst the meaty cut from inside the bone we call a “Scotch Fillet”.
My first part time causal job was being a Butcher. Being a butcher was an unforgettable first job, not only because it taught me the care it takes to handle sharp tools, but also the different cuts of meat that were appropriate for certain dishes. For instance, you would not use Chuck Steak as a meat to cook on the hot plate, nor would you cut Rib Eye steak up into a curry.
The term “cowboy ribeye” or “cowboy cut” is often used in American restaurants for a bone-in rib eye. The rib eye or “ribeye” was originally, as the name implies, the centre best portion of the rib steak, without the bone. A rib steak is a beef steak sliced from the rib primal of a beef animal, with rib bone attached.
Rib Eye Keto Recipe is best known for the marbling effect of the fat which runs throughout the grain of the meat. This is very different to a Porterhouse Steak or Rump Steak where the fat lives mostly on the outside area of the meaty centre. This also make it perfect for either fast, hot frying… or delicious slow steady cooking like I’m about to show you.
