What is Côte de Boeuf?

The butcher's guide

Côte de Boeuf is beef from the front end of the back. There is less muscle, making it even more tender than the loin. We cut the meat from the space between the striploin and the thick flank of the cow, from the first six ribs. Côte de Boeuf keeps its bone and is beautifully marbled for a unique flavour.
