Buyacow.uk Ribeye steaks

Widely considered to be the tastiest steak, ribeye comes from the "rib" (the main muscle attached to the spine of a cow). This part of the cow does very little work during its typical day-to-day, therefore producing meat that is very, very tender. More often than not, ribeye steaks are also laced with ribbons of marbling (intramuscular fat), giving them their well-known rich, succulent taste.
