Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill naming the ribeye as the official state steak of Oklahoma. Oklahoma Sen. Casey Murdock, a rancher from the Oklahoma Panhandle, introduced the legislation in December 2018.
“Beef cattle farmers and ranchers represent the largest sector of Oklahoma agriculture,” said Michael Kelsey, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association executive vice president. “Highlighting the most popular steak, the ribeye steak, as the official steak of Oklahoma is a great opportunity to promote Oklahoma and our great beef industry.”
