Our Newest Cut of All Natural Black Angus! The Center Cut Eight Ounce Saratoga Rib Eye Steak!
The Center Cut, heart of the Rib Eye!
The Saratoga Steak is a cut unique to Gourmet South, coming from only 100% Black Angus Cattle, an area near the shoulder of the cow and inside the area known as the Rib Cap. Aged for 28 to 30 days, this incredibly flavorful steak averages about nine ounces in weight and is a smaller cut than the traditional "side-of-beef-on-a-plate" items such as a Porterhouse or the larger Rib Eye. Straight forward and versatile, this cut deserves your serious attention, and after all that hard work making dinner? You deserve it as well!
Talk about necessity being the mother of invention! The Saratoga Rib Eye is the perfect example; and one with a really happy ending. It’s a byproduct from the production of the Rib Cap (and the tastiest thing ever to be associated with the term ‘byproduct’); and originally was not unique because its size was very similar to a normal Rib Eye Steak.
The Saratoga Rib Eye is, simply put, the heart of the Rib Eye Steak. A star is born! I think that this cut might drive the Filet Mignon out of business... To give you a little more description of it, once the Rib Cap is removed, what is left is the heart of the Rib Eye steak. After perfectly hand trimmed the result is a perfect and compact steak that delivers the flavor of its big brother without the extra baggage. Much of the allure of the Filet Mignon is that you can get a nice thick cut without having a huge portion…now there is an alternative. Particularly when the meal is a multi course affair, a diminutive entrée option is a fantastic alternative to consider.
Now at 8 ounces each, these are the perfect size for any steak lover!
