Organic Retired Dairy Beef Rib Eye Steak

Beautifully marbled steaks - the Dairy Beef Ribeye

If you thought you couldn't get much better than a regular rib eye steak, try Coombe Farm Organic's retired dairy beef rib eye steak and prepare to be very pleasantly surprised. They're cut from the beef animal's fore rib and include a collection of well-worked muscles held together by delicate connective tissue and shot through with a sweet marbling of fat. Retired dairy beef comes from older cows so their muscles have benefitted from slow growth to maturity. This translates into an unsurpassed, complex depth of flavour and a wonderfully open-grained texture. Mouth watering? Certainly is.

In taking retired dairy cows and growing them on for beef, we're honouring the Spanish tradition of Basque beef. This is beef from very, very old cows that delivers a flavour that's unique and robust. Old dairy cows wouldn't normally be taken into a beef system, but we decided – in accordance with our waste-minimisation policy – to see if this was meat that we could make use of. The cows, once they've finished dairy duty, are given time to gain condition, eating our finest West Country pasture and having a rest from calving and milking. The result is stunningly flavoursome meat with a really distinctive character. Definitely too good to miss out on.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.

  • All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

    You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

    Can't Find the Answer?

    If you cannot find the answer to your question and would like to speak to someone contact us and we will be happy to help.

To get the best out of your organic retired dairy beef rib eye steak, aim for a medium-rare finish. That'll allow the marbling to render and infuse flavour through the meat while retaining tenderness and succulence. Fry in a hot pan for a couple of minutes on the first side. Flip and fry for about 30 seconds before adding a generous knob of butter and frying for another 90 seconds, basting with the melting butter as you go. Be sure to rest your steak (warmly wrapped in foil) for about 5 minutes before serving on a simply dressed bed of rocket, with some salty skinny fries on the side.
