The Instacart guide to rib-eye steak

About rib-eye steak

The incredible fat marbling, which is the white veins you see running through the rib-eye, is what contributes to this cut's delicious flavor. Unfortunately, this is also what causes the rib-eye to be higher in fat than other steaks. In fact, it contains 4 grams of saturated fat, which is 20% of the daily recommended value. It's high in protein, though, providing 23 grams or 46% of the daily recommended value. Most steaks, including the rib-eye, contain vitamins B12 and B6, iron, zinc, and phosphorus, all of which are necessary in your diet.

You shouldn't have any trouble finding a rib-eye steak at your local market, as it's not well known in the U.S by any other name. However, this steak can sometimes go by names like Delmonico steak, Scotch filet, Beauty steak, Market steak, and Spencer steak, especially if you're in another country.

To ensure you get the best steak, it's important that you're familiar with all your options. Rib-eye steak is one of the more common and popular steaks on the market, and for good reason. Its technical cut is called spinalis dorsi, and it comes from the rib portion of the cow. This is the section located behind the chuck and in front of the loin. The meat is actually the portion that sits between the ribs, and it has a bold, full flavor that retains its juiciness as it cooks.

Since the rib-eye comes from near the cow's backbone, a section of muscle that isn't used much, the meat is very tender. This is just part of what makes this cut so popular with steak lovers. It's also very flavorful, thanks to its exceptional marbling of fat that runs throughout the cut. Of course, this steak is one of the more expensive options, but it's well worth the money for its savory flavor and ease of preparation. The exact price will depend on a couple of factors, such as:
  • The size of the rib-eye steak.
  • How in-demand rib-eye steak is in your area.
  • The age of the rib-eye steak.
  • The grade of the rib-eye steak.
Because rib-eye steaks are one of the more common cuts, it's usually not hard to find at your local butcher or in the grocery store's meat department. Although it comes from the rib section, it's boneless. Restaurants love to serve this steak for its perfect size that nicely fills the plate, and it makes an impressive meal when served at your backyard barbecue.

FAQs About Ribeye Steak

If you don't plan on eating your rib-eye steak the same day you order it, you'll be able to store it in your refrigerator slightly longer than other steak varieties. When you keep it in the plastic or butcher paper it was packaged in at the supermarket, your rib-eye steak should stay fresh in the fridge for up to five days. It may last longer if you put it in an airtight container. 

When you want to keep your rib-eye steak fresh longer, put it in an airtight container in the freezer. This will keep it fresh for six to 12 months.
