Hungry? Flavorful ribeye declared official steak of Oklahoma

The Associated Press - May 4, 2019 8:28 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Beef lovers need not fret about what to eat in Oklahoma, where cattle outnumber people.
Gov. Kevin Stitt on Thursday signed into law a bill making the ribeye the official steak of Oklahoma. The measure takes effect November 1st.
Rancher and State Sen. Casey Murdock, of Felt, who sponsored the bill, says the cattle industry is a huge part of Oklahoma’s identity.
Murdock says Oklahoma has more than 5 million cattle. Census figures estimate the 2018 population of Oklahoma was about 3.9 million.
Murdock says designating the ribeye, which is known for its flavor, as the official steak of Oklahoma is good for tourism and restaurants.
