Ribeye Count Confusion??

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Ok, so I'm thoughly confused on the calorie count for a ribeye steak! Ribeye is one of my FAV's! And they were on sale, so I grabbed a 1/4" thick, very small one (about 4 oz) splurge a little. If you know your Ribeyes, then you know this was a pathic excuse for a ribeye! It should be ashamed to call itself a ribeye!! But it had the marbling and the flavor!! So I'm good!!

However, the calorie count on Spark was all over the place!!! It varied from 300 to 1500 calories?!? So I googled it, and had the same problem!! I guess I can understand some variance, cuz ribeyes are know for the fat marbling, and the more consistant marbling the better the flavor. And very lean ones don't pack the flavor!

So a ribeye ranges from 50-125 calories per ounce. So, I'm gonna guesstimate on 100 calories per ounce, which is a little higher than the average calorie count. I would rather over estimate, than under estimate. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it....for now.....

Still confused, but this is my most logical answer.....

    If you have found Ribeye on the nutritional tracker from a restaurant, you are most likely also seeing that they cook it in butter! But for just the meat, the lower should be ok!
