What is "edge of eye steak" from freshdirect?

i wanted to buy the edge of eye steak that i usually get from fresh direct but when i asked the local butcher, he did not know what that was. Im hoping someone out there knows what its called, i dont think its a chuck fillet steak tho.
thank you,

  1. A quick Web search shows that there is no such thing - or rather, no such thing outside of FreshDirect. It thus appears that they invented the term, and as such it means whatever they want it to mean. You'll have to ask them.

    1. According to FreshDirect, it's a part of the chuck steak. Look at FreshDirect's beef guide. Maybe you can print it out to show your butcher...

        That is one of the best beef cut guides I have seen online; thanks!

          The map is very cool! Thank you for posting. However, Edgeville is not mentioned! I guess it is a secret and special destination for the cow-noisseur. (TM) (ha ha!)

        2. I <think> it's a fancy way of saying Rib-Eye.
          But I could be wrong

          1. It's delicious. It has the marbelization of a Ribeye, but it's super inexpensive.
