Sourced from young, grain-fed cattle for consistent marbling and superior taste, this premium cut delivers an exceptional culinary experience, especially when prepared bone-in for added flavor complexity and a stunning presentation.

John Dee Super Gold Rib-eye Roll MB1 Lip-On Boneless Select offers all the beloved rich flavor of a ribeye in a versatile, boneless format. It includes the "lip" – the spinalis dorsi muscle – known for its exceptional tenderness and flavor. The 'Select' grading means this cut offers good quality, but might require a bit more attention during cooking to maximize its tenderness potential.

Prioritizing lean indulgence, John Dee Angus Beef starts with select 12-18 month old cattle raised antibiotic-free and HGP-free on pristine Australian pastures.

Pan-Searing and Oven Finish:
1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F).
2. Heat a cast-iron skillet or heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat.
3. Sear ribeye roll on all sides until well-browned, about 2-3 minutes per side.
4. Transfer pan to 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 roll 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 roll on all sides, 1-2 minutes per side for a deeply browned crust.

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Sear the ribeye roll over direct heat for a few minutes per side to get a nice char.
3. Move to indirect heat and continue cooking, closing the grill lid, until desired doneness.

- Thermometer is Key: Use a meat thermometer, aiming for medium-rare (54-57°C/130-135°F).
- Rest, Then Slice: Let the ribeye roll rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing to ensure maximum juiciness.
- Slice Against the Grain: Cut across the grain for the most tender bites

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

Medium-Rare (57-60°C / 135-140°F): Recommended for most people. Balances tenderness with a juicy, flavorful center. Bright pink and warm throughout.

Medium (63-65°C / 145-150°F): Firmer texture, light pink center. Still enjoyable, but some tenderness may be lost compared to medium-rare.

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

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