How much does 1.5 lbs. of ribeye steak cost?

Here are the recent answer to this question.
For quality beef with the ribeye cut right off the prime rib roast, expect to pay $15-40 a pound. Our restaurant sells a 14 oz. for $32.00. You can find meats in the "butcher's deal" section of stores that are on sale because their shelf life is almost up. This is a great way to save up to 75% of meat if you are planning to cook or freeze it ASAP.

It depends what part of country you are in. I'm in Chicago, seems to be a bit more reasonable here then in the other 3 directions, E,W,S, I'm North guys! On average, not on sale, mid quality, 12-13.00/ LB.on sale 8-11.00/LB. Really good quality on sale should run 10/lb hope that helps.

It fluctuates wildly. I've seen it anywhere from $1.99 per pound to $6.99. Your best bet is to save up and buy a quarter or half of beef from a small ranch. Then you get all the cuts for a set price per pound, and better beef too!

Around here Ribeye is often on sale for $4.99 lb. Safeway has the best!! So.....1 1/2 lb. would be roughly $7.50 ! :)

Call (or go to) your local market and inquire what they are selling it for per pound.
