The Butcher’s Guide: What is a Butcher’s Cut Ribeye?


After more than a century as America’s Original Butcher, the masters at Omaha Steaks have done it: created a brand-new steak. We’re proud to introduce the BUTCHER’S CUT RIBEYE –and it’s only available here.

What is a Butcher’s Cut Ribeye?

It’s a new cut of ribeye that delivers everything you love about the steak and nothing you don’t. It is thicker, perfectly sized, and triple-trimmed – we unconditionally guarantee this steak will be a fantastic experience, every time. These exclusive steaks come in 6 oz. cuts that you can find when you order ribeye steaks online at

This innovative new steak cut, introduced in 2019, was originally named the “Omaha-Cut Ribeye.” In 2022, it joined our thicker, juicier Butcher’s Cut line of steaks. It’s the same cut you’ve come to love with a new name. Watch Jerry, one of our most experienced master butchers, explain how we developed this new cut of steak.

Creating the Butcher’s Cut Ribeye

Omaha Steaks began as a small family butcher shop in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1917. 105 years later, we’re still here and we’re still the same family.

To make Omaha Steaks even better, the family owners asked for something unprecedented: a brand new steak. With decades of steak experience, our butchers knew it would be something special, but the Butcher’s Cut Ribeye is something more. By meticulously hand-carving perfectly aged, richly marbled, and tender ribeyes into a brand new form, they’ve crafted a steak with the very best in flavor, unlike any ribeye you’ve ever experienced.

It all starts with careful, expert steak selection. Every ounce of Omaha Steaks beef is selected by hand and thoroughly inspected for the best color and marbling. This tradition of selecting excellence began in 1917 with the company’s family founders and continues now with our expert team of master butchers.

Carved Thicker and Triple-Trimmed

Butcher’s Cut Ribeyes have to be thick, too. Really thick. We carve them from the best beef ribs anywhere and make sure that each steak is nearly as tall as it is wide, with great consistency and marbling.

These ribeyes are carved by hand and expertly trimmed not once… not twice… but a full three times. The Triple-Trim is part of what makes this EXCLUSIVE steak special. Nobody else does it. Butchers leave only the extra-meaty, tender center at the heart of each ribeye – with zero exterior fat. You can find ribeyes many places, but you can only get this one here.

A New Kind of Ribeye

The Butcher’s Cut Ribeye is formidably thick and cut extra tall. Each steak is loaded with robust and rich ribeye flavor from its considerable buttery marbling, which is the fat that melts into the beef as it cooks. What you won’t get is the big pieces of white fat, the parts you don’t want to eat. There’s nothing here but the VERY heart of the world’s best ribeye steak.

The Perfect Thick Steak Cook, Every Time

You’ll love sinking your teeth into the uniquely thick Butcher’s Cut Ribeye over and over again, but its signature thickness isn’t just for show. The Butcher’s Cut Ribeye’s distinct size and shape allows for a more uniform distribution of heat, making it ideal for everyday chefs. In a nutshell, it’ll cook perfectly every time, no matter how you love your steaks. Your days of overcooking are over. And because they boast that exclusive triple-trimmed leanness and optimal portion size, this steak is just right for a single, satisfying meal.
