Because of excellent marbling in the meat of this cut it is loaded with flavor and remains tender during cooking. This steak is best grilled (ask anyone) and will remain tender up to medium, though it is still good at medium well.
This is THE steak. At least once in your life you need to go to the most expensive restaurant you can find and order a prime grade Rib-Eye steak, medium rare. When you go to take that first bite, close your eyes and roll back in your seat. Yeah, it's like that.
