*Price may vary depending on weight

Distinguished as the epitome of tenderness and taste within the rib-eye, this section exhibits stunning marbling, resulting in a decadent, buttery flavor profile that simply melts with each bite. Furthermore, the inclusion of the bone offers an impressive visual appeal, while ensuring the meat stays impeccably structured during preparation - ideal for grilling, pan-searing & reverse searing.

Also known as: Cowboy Steak, Tomahawk Steak, Bone-In Ribeye Steak

John Dee Rib-eye Cap-off Bone-in offers the classic rich flavor of the ribeye with the added depth and impressive presentation of having the bone left in. While the "cap" (the spinalis dorsi muscle) has been removed, you still get the core of the ribeye's delicious beefiness. The bone enhances both the flavor during cooking and creates a visually appealing steak.

Pan-Searing and Oven Finish:
1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F).
2. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.
3. Sear the ribeye on all sides, including standing it on the bone, until well-browned.
4. Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and roast until desired doneness.

Reverse Sear:
1. Preheat oven to a low temperature of 100-120°C (225-250°F).
2. Slow-roast the ribeye bone-in on a wire rack on a baking sheet until about 10-15 degrees below your desired final temperature.
3. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over very high heat. Sear the ribeye on all sides for 1-2 minutes per side to get a deeply browned crust.

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Sear the ribeye directly over heat, including the bone, to get a nice char.
3. Move to indirect heat and close the grill lid. Allow to cook until desired doneness.

- Thermometer is Your Friend: Use a meat thermometer, aiming for medium-rare (54-57°C/130-135°F) for maximum tenderness and flavor.
- Rest, Then Carve: Let the ribeye rest for 5-10 minutes before carving to redistribute juices for maximum succulence.
- Cut Along the Bone: Carve the meat away from the bone for the best presentation.

Rare (52-55°C / 125-130°F): Soft texture, very red center.

Medium-Rare (57-60°C / 135-140°F): Highly recommended. Ideal balance of tenderness, juiciness, and rich beef flavor. Center is bright pink and warm.

Medium (63-65°C / 145-150°F): Firmer texture, light pink center. Still enjoyable, but some tenderness may begin to diminish.

Medium-Well (68-70°C / 155-160°F): Pinkish-gray center. Noticeably firm, for those who prefer a fully cooked steak.

Well-Done (Above 71°C / 160°F): Generally not recommended, especially for bone-in ribeye, as it can become tough and dry.
