English term or phrase: rib eye (delmonico cut)
Is this translated or does it stay in English? Thanks!

Spanish translation:I agree with Velasco
Explanation:
Although I HAVE heard of "ojo de costilla" (versus the whole prime rib thing) , Velasco is rught - primarily it is an American term, understood by everyone, and the variations in dialects could be endless. I'd stick with ribeye (maybe ojo de costilla in parenthesis).
Again, hope this helps more than confuses! Suerte!

ojo de costilla, corte Delmonico


Explanation:
You can also leave it in English. The term is well known in both languages. Below are 2 URLs that show both "rib-eye Filadelfia" and "ojo de costilla" in a Spanish context.

Explanation:
"Rib eye" is a butcher's (international)term for a specific (and expensive) meat part(loin area) "Delmonico cut" is another variant of the same issue. I think leaving just like that, without translation, causes less confusion as it's worldwide known, and because every region names their cuts different, specially in Latin America and Spain.
Bon Appetite!
