A closer look at the Bone In Ribeye
The perfect balance of flavour and tenderness. Also known as “Côte de Boeuf”, the Bone-In Ribeye is an exceptional cut; the perfect balance of flavour and tenderness. Roasted as a rack or grilled as single ribs, it offers high levels of marbling, full grass-fed beef flavour and perfect juiciness. It is sure to impress both on the plate and on the palate! The rib bone provides protection to the meat for an even, perfect cooking and adds flavour.
Choose cap-on for added ‘bulkiness’ and flavour; many consider the Cap as the tastiest cut on the steer. Choose Frenched for a lean look and perfect presentation.
Like every other Matangi cut it holds rich 100% grass fed beef flavours enhanced by our unique 3-week dry-aging process.
Matangi Bone In Ribeye comes “cap on” or ‘frenched”, this will not modify the cooking technique, only slightly the cooking time. If possible, salt your Bone In Ribeye the day before with sea salt flakes, if not get it out of the fridge one hour before cooking and salt it.
Baste all sides with olive oil or clarified butter. Preheat your oven at 240°C (you can also use the indirect heat area of your BBQ). Place a cast iron pot on the stove on high heat, once smoking hot place your Bone In Ribeye inside on the fat side first and sear all sides.
Once seared, remove the pot from the stove and place it in the oven with the Bone In Ribeye sitting on the fat side with the bone up, vertically, so you get even cooking on both sides. Make sure to turn the Bone In Ribeye halfway through the cooking. You can do the same on a BBQ, heat it to full heat (ie 250°C). Sear all sides and then cook in the indirect heat area of your BBQ or place in the oven at 240°C. Cook until it reaches 45 to 50°C internal temperature. Take it out of the heat and let it rest covered in tin foil for 10 min.
Season to taste and indulge!

Our meat is a luxury product perfect for special occasions. Offering a superior experience, we go the extra mile from breeding our own closed herd, with no butchering before 24 months, to hanging and dry ageing the quarters on the bone for three weeks before our in-house butchery team does the fine cutting. This produces the well marbled and succulent cuts our discerning customers expect and desire.get to know our team
The best grass-fed Angus Beef for Kiwi meat lovers.
The quality of our land is a key ingredient to raising healthy, strong and ultimately flavoursome Angus cattle. We breed and raise our animals over two properties within the Tuki Tuki catchment. Lush grass on nutritious soil, clean water in every paddock, shady trees, all contours of landscape – the perfect backdrop for contented animals. And we're constantly improving these wonderful places by planting native trees, fencing off creeks, protecting the soil and our water sources.
