It's called ribeye, GB. It's very difficult to get prime, as that is generally saved for the restaurants, but around here, they occasionally have them at Sam's. What we usually get is choice, and I actually like it better, because there is less fat. Kim sometimes ages them in the vacuum package, but I don't care for the "whang" they get, so he hasn't been doing that lately.
I really like roasting a hunk of ribeye in the oven, and then slicing it. Kim rubs the meat with salt, pepper and granulated garlic (pretty heavily) and roasts, uncovered, in a 375 oven until it reaches an internal temp of 120-125, and then removes it from the oven, covers with foil and lets it stand for 5-7 minutes. That's for medium rare.
Add a baked potato with sour cream and asparagus spears, and you have a feast!
