Our 16oz Prime Dry-Aged Ribeye is an excellent choice for adventurous steak connoisseurs. For this reason, and because the dry-aging process is more complex, it's somewhat uncommon to find a dry-aged ribeye, let alone a USDA Prime Dry-Aged Ribeye, on most menus. If you've never experienced a dry-aged steak and you consider yourself a steak lover, we invite you to order ours next time you join us for dinner. It has the robust flavor quality you love in a ribeye, with a more intensified umami flavor that's hard to explain until you experience it firsthand. It'll raise your eyebrows in the best possible way.RESERVE A TABLE
As the name suggests, the ribeye comes from the upper rib section of the steer, a part of the cow that's rich with intramuscular fat — meaning it gets just enough exercise to create some Prime marbling. As a result, a ribeye is still known to be tender and full-flavored but not quite as melt-in-mouth as a Filet Mignon.
What Is Dry-Aging?
Dry-aging takes place in a humidity-controlled cooler. The goal is to draw out the moisture and bring forward a purer, more concentrated beef flavor. You can almost compare it to the grape fermentation process, or the way cheese gets stronger with age. The longer a steak is dry-aged, the stronger that intense flavor gets, so while some steaks are aged for as long as 60 days, we've found that a minimum of 21 days is the sweet spot when it comes to flavor. Dry-aging also changes the texture of a steak, so you can expect a dry-aged ribeye to be slightly more tender than a wet-aged steak.
Preparing The Perfect Dry-Aged Prime Ribeye
Our dry-aging process, coupled with our signature seasoning blend and trademark broiling method gives way to a dry-aged steak that’s second to none. Our Chefs know exactly where on the 1600-degree broiler to place your Prime Dry-Aged Ribeye and for how long, depending on your desired temperature. Once your ribeye leaves the broiler it’s time for the most important part of the preparation process: resting. This ensures the natural moisture and flavors stay locked inside the steak. We transfer it to a 350-degree plate and finish it with a touch of butter and parsley before bringing it out to your table. Our signature compound butters, and over-the-top steak companions are just one more way to further enhance your masterful steak experience. See what butters and companions our Corporate Executive Chef recommends for our Prime Dry-Aged Ribeye below.
We believe that your way is always the right way, though, for a highly marbled cut of Prime USDA meat like our Dry-Aged Ribeye, our Chefs suggest a temperature of medium so that the marbling has time to caramelize and seep into the entire steak. If you have any questions about our steak temperature standards, our dedicated Associates will help guide you toward the right temperature for you.
