The entrecôte steak is a cut from the foreribs (US: rib) at the inner limit of the rump along a line parallel with the spine.

The steak itself is a lean, tender steak cut from the thin end of boned sirloin (US: loin). It is a thick, juicy, well-marbled steak and is excellent for grilling and is a classic French steak.
