About this cut
This heavily marbled steak is one the most flavorful cuts available. The crescent is cut from the lip of the rib, the most delicious part of the steer. Tender and mouthwateringly supple, with a buttery richness that cannot be matched. Slice against the grain and serve like a London broil. This is truly a gourmet steak.
Other names for this cut: Ribeye Cap Steak, Rib Cap, Calotte (French), Butcher's Butter

Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

Extremely fatty. Must marinade it at least 24 hours for it to be edible
These are among the finest steaks I have ever eaten, including (kosher) filet mignons and NY strip steaks. The flavor is as rich as a chuck steak and the texture like butter (perhaps I should say margarine). Expensive and for special occasions.
Yes, it's pricey, for a reason. This is the part of the rib steak you see on top of the round ribeye, above the bone. They cut it into its own steak. It is the very best piece of meat on the entire cow. Sear each side in the hottest skillet, with olive oil, salt, and pepper. You will never need a restaurant again.
First time trying these & delightfully surprised. Marinated for fajitas. Meat was tender & delicious. Will definitely order again.
This cut is amazing. Just salt/pepper e grill and it's soooo good.
One of my favorite cut you have. Fantastic flavor and tenderness. Price makes it not an everyday Steak but it’s well worth having. No waste with this meal. Every bite is perfect. Nothing to cut away. You only need to be careful not to over cook as it is thinner than cuts like your chuck steak. Use a temperature gauge to 130-135 and it will come out medium rare Well done loose flavor. Again one of your best Steak
Meat was very good however do not like that I can’t order one piece instead of two smaller pieces
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
