USDA PRIME: these Ribeye Steaks are graded USDA Prime, the top tier of quality in the US. On average, about 9% of graded cattle will achieve Prime status, but taking things a step further, we inspect each primal that moves through our facility to guarantee quality. If we don’t think a piece deserves the Prime grade, we won’t ship it.
HOLSTEIN CATTLE: Our Ribeyes are cut from Holstein Cattle, raised in California predominantly in the Southeast corner of the state. The size (diameter) of Holstein steaks will be smaller than the Angus which will allow for a thicker steak. This is particularly noticeable on the Ribeye, which will naturally have a smaller diameter filet than the Angus breed.
SHIP FROZEN: We cut these steaks once they reach the age goal and freeze immediately. Once they are received they are good for 4-5days in your refrigerator, or 6-7months in the freezer.
DRY AGED: Before these were processed into steaks, the whole Rib that these Rib Eye steaks are cut from was Dry Aged for 45,60,75 or 90 days as individually labeled.
