Are Ribeye steaks healthy?

A thick juicy Ribeye steak is the star on the menus of most respectable steak houses, and it is definitely on our top list at Maria’s SteakCafe too. If you’ve tried it, we’re sure you’ve been seduced by its rich, juicy, and abundant marbling and you probably want more!

But you might be asking, can something this rich and delicious be healthy and nutritious? The short answer is, YES!

Ribeye steak is loaded with the top 6 micronutrients:

Saturated Fats

However, ‘fat’, especially saturated fat found in red meat is often one of the biggest concerns people have. But did you know that saturated fat is an essential nutrient, and we need to get it from our food? This is because saturated fats that show up in our food are important building blocks and energy depots for many organisms. They provide energy, support the growth of our cells, and help produce and regulate hormones.

Getting rid of fatty meat like Ribeye steak will deter our body from absorbing nutrients. Fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E, and K won’t do much for our body unless they have fat to chauffeur them through our bloodstream. Stearic acid is one of the most abundant fatty acids in Ribeye steak, accounting for ⅓ of the saturated fat content. It has been shown to improve body fat ratio, support mitochondrial function (the energy factories inside your cells), and promote weight loss.

Healthy Fats in Ribeye steak

Meanwhile, Ribeye steak, especially grass-fed, offers significant amounts of a highly beneficial fat called CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), with powerful anti-cancer properties.

Monounsaturated fat in Ribeye steak also provides anti-inflammatory properties and may reduce the risk of heart disease.

The totality of evidence suggests that Ribeye steak is indeed a healthy food. If you’re looking for juicy, tender, and flavourful Ribeye steaks, visit one of the best steakhouses in KL.
