Ribeye is many peoples’ favourite cut; it is both tender and full of flavour. Rib eye has excellent marbling, which adds to the flavour and helps keep the meat moist during cooking, making it a superb quality roasting joint.
There are many ways to enjoy Ribeye. It can be boned and rolled as joint, or roast on the bone; you can French trim the rib bones for a Cote De Boeuf; you can remove the eye of the rib for rib eye steaks, or leave a long length of rib and you’ve got a tomahawk steak.
Ribeye is taken from the fore rib primal. The fore rib generally contains four ribs, ribs 7, 8, 9 and 10 counting backwards from the neck. (Cattle have 13 ribs in all.) However a fifth rib is sometimes included (rib 6) to make an even more substantial roast.
There are in fact two main muscles in the fore rib: the rib eye muscle itself (the longissimus dorsi, which just means the longest on the back), which also makes up one of the halves of T-bone and Porterhouse steaks, along with the fillet, and the rib eye cap (the Spinalis Dorsi) which is a thin layer of muscle that surrounds the rib eye itself. The rib eye cap is, again, very tender and adds another layer of flavour to the roast. You really cannot go wrong with ribeye.

Sirloin comes from the centre of the animal, between the fore rib and the rump. It is in fact the same tender, lightly marbled muscle as the ribeye, just further back on the animal, which means the steaks are larger.
If you are browsing the internet, Sirloin can get confusing because different countries have different names for the same cut of meat.
What American’s call Sirloin we call Rump. What we call Sirloin, Americans call a New York Strip, or just Strip Steak, because the Fillet (what they call Tenderloin) has been stripped away. Confused yet? Well it is also called a top loin steak, and if it’s left on the bone, a Kansas City Strip, something you may see in the UK called a Wing Rib.
Whatever! It tastes great.
