Where are Rib eye steaks cut from?
This is the eye muscle from the forerib joint. It is made up of a mixture of the longissimus dorsi muscle which runs up from the rump and sirloin, and the tail-end of the chuck muscle which sits on the shoulder blade. In between are the various collagen membranes which bind them together. Rib eye steak has recently been voted as the most popular steak. With melting fat and flavoursome meat we can quite understand why.
