What is a Rib-Eye Steak on bone?
A wonderful crust on the outside and tender on the inside, with a slight bite. That's right, we're talking about one of the most popular cuts of beef: the Rib-Eye Steak. Sometimes also called entrecote, the Rib-Eye Steak enjoys the title of "steak of the connoisseurs and gourmets", among others.
Why? Because it combines exactly what makes a real steak. It's no wonder that no menu in a steakhouse should be without it. The (Mercedes) of all meats, so to speak. The Rib-Eye Steak on bone takes this pleasure to the extreme and also looks even better.
The steak is cut from the prime rib, which is part of the front back of the calf. To be more precise, from the entrecôte, the intermediate rib cut, also known as the "high rib".
What makes the Rib Eye Steak on Bone special?
The Rib Eye Steak on Bone is beautifully marbled, the characteristic fat eye gives off a great flavour. It is tender and has only a slight bite. Whether on a fire plate, gas, charcoal or top-heat grill - the rib eye steak is ideal for short roasting. It also gets a wonderful crust in a cast iron pan.
Due to its special position, you get the fat marbled rib eye, which convinces with its particularly intensive flavour. The closed fat eye and the beautiful marbling are absolutely characteristic for rib eye steaks on bone from Fitmeat.
Rump Steak vs. Rib Eye Steak on Bone
Compared to a Rump Steak, it is more infused with fat, which makes it much juicier and more intense. The Rib-Eye on bone is surrounded on one side by the rib arches and on the other side by the fat high rib cover.
This makes it suitable for long maturing times. At Fitmeat, Rib-Eye Steaks on Bone are matured on the bone for at least 2-3 weeks. Prepared correctly, whether on the grill or in the pan, you get the ultimate steak pleasure!

Herkunft und Haltung
Quality is our highest concern, and in the case of beef, a few factors are crucial. These include the perfect breed of cattle, the age of the animals and optimal feeding, free of concentrated feed. However, this alone is not enough to meet our requirements.
Because we don't do things by halves when it comes to the quality of our meat products! That is why 100% of our animals come from Austria. The farms are located in the Waldviertel in Lower Austria, in Salzburg and in neighbouring Upper Austria. In addition, at Fitmeat we only process the finest meat from heifers and steers.
The meat has a wonderful marbling and taste. Our classic cattle breeds include Red-Angus, Black-Angus, Charolais, Limousin, White-Blue Belgian and Wagyu, as well as various crossbreeds.
Our cattle are 4x AT certified. This means that birth, rearing, butchering and refinement take place 100% in Austria. The value chain therefore remains entirely in Austria.
We distance ourselves from long animal transports and select our partners very carefully. Therefore, we rely on animals that are kept in a species-appropriate manner, born and raised by small farmers, and on butchers who know both the farmer and the animal personally.
Our butchers let the cuts mature on the bone for a long time. This gives us first-class, well-hung meat that does not lose water during roasting and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
