In August of 2010, Rare Cuts opened its doors in New Orleans, Louisiana with one goal in mind: provide the highest quality cuts of premium meats to the home cook. All of Rare Cuts products are all natural, always fresh and are never frozen. Every cut of beef is aged a minimum of 20 days and each animal is fed a 100% vegetarian diet and treated humanely. Each ranch that Rare Cuts sources its products from has been carefully vetted from the top down to ensure that you receive a consistent and quality product.
The Rib-Eye is cut from the roast that sits at the top of the rib primal. As a roast is known as a standing rib roast or, more commonly, Prime Rib (though technically only if it is prime grade beef). The Rib-Eye is a boneless cut. When the bone is attached it is called a Rib Steak. Because of abundant marbling throughout the meat of this cut it is loaded with flavor and remains tender during cooking. This steak is best grilled (ask anyone) and will remain tender up to medium, though it is still good at medium well.
