According to the National Cattlemen's Beef Association the Ribeye is the #1 steak in America (in terms of sales). This is because it presents a mix of marbling and tenderness that is unmatched by any other steak. because this area of the cow gets little exercise, the muscle isn't used much and therefore the meat is nice and tender.
Moreover, the Ribeye is a determinant factor in how a cow grades (Choice, Prime, or A3-A5). Graders evaluate the amount and distribution of marbling in the ribeye muscle at the cut surface after the carcass has been ribbed between the 12th and 13th ribs.
This is a 14 Oz Wagyu-Angus cross breed steak. Full of flavor and EXTREMELY tender. This product has been aged for 14+ Days to improve tenderness and flavor.
