Steak types: Rib-eye steak/Entrecôte

Which part of the beef does this piece of meat come from?
The rib-eye steak is cut from the front part of the loin. It is often called Entrecôte. This part is located between the sirloin to the back, and to the neck to the front.

What is special to the rib-eye steak?The rib-eye steak has a fat centre, which is called the fat eye. The marbling from the fat centre through the meat makes the rib-eye steak especially juicy and gives it its hearty taste. 

Where did the rib-eye steak get its name from?The rib-eye steak received its name from the very long muscle (longissimus dorsi) stretching from the neck almost up to the rump. This muscle is also called “eye”.

Which is the best way to prepare a rib-eye steak?We at MAREDO grill our South American steaks on a gas grille, a traditionally proven method. You can find hints for preparation at home in our blog.
