Buying the Best Ribeye
The success or failure of your steak is often determined at the grocery store. While there are plenty of ways to screw up a steak at home, by and large the biggest factor in how delicious (or not) your steak is comes from your selection at the grocery store, farmer’s market, butcher, or wherever you buy your meat.
I can give you my best methods and ingredients, but sometimes I think it’s even more helpful to help you pick the right piece of meat to begin with.
Some lean types of steak do better with a marinade, such as those with round, chuck, or loin in the name. That’s fine, but it will add prep time to your meal.
Ribeye steaks can be cooked quickly, which makes them perfect for this sauté.
Now that you’ve narrowed down what kind of steak will work, it’s time to pick out the particular piece you want on your dinner plate. Here are some tips.
- Look for a relatively small eye and large cap. Many say this is the best part of the steak.
- If choosing between USDA Choice and Select beef, go with Choice. It’s going to have more marbling and more flavor than the lower graded Select or ungraded meats.
- That being said, the fat between the eye and the cap should be fairly small.
- Look for a relatively small piece of meat. Steak is a great source of iron and protein, but, like anything, you can overdo it.
- If you can afford and find grass-fed beef, that is preferable. If not, just get the best quality steak that’s within your budget.
