About the Ribeye Chef
I love everything about steak. I love eating it, I love learning about it, and I love telling people about it.
I been exposed to beef my entire life. Part of my family growing up raised cattle in East Texas, and that is where I was introduced to the breed of cattle called Black Angus. As well as what a “hot stick cattle prod” was. Google it, or better yet youtube it. It packs a punch and when your 13 years old and weigh like 100 lbs. I got to learn first hand what it’s like to raise cattle, go to market, and slaughter beef. I got to drive tractors and bail hay in the Texas heat. I also learned first hand how mean a Black Angus bull can get, and also to never get in between a momma and her calf. Those lessons hurt. I also got a first hand appreciation for the hard work, and the people behind scenes doing all the labor so we can all enjoy this tasty meat. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Beef has also been in my blood for generations. My great grandfather was a butcher in England, and of course his shop was named after the family – Hamley’s. Not an easy life back then, but I have huge respect for what he did each and every day. I’ve even spent many years working in restaurants when I was a kid before going to college and to grad school to pursue my career in marketing. But I’ve always had a passion and I’ll call it a “pull” back to my roots, so that is why I started this site. And of course I named this site after my personal favorite cut, the ribeye steak.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I wanted to create a fun place where you can learn a little more information on your personal journey and enjoyment of steak. Don’t be surprised if you see me add a few things unrelated to steak…like lobster rolls, the best crab cakes, or other amazing seafoods. Why might you ask? Because I like them and they are damn good.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
