Alright guys, i forgot to weigh the food, but i need to know a rough estimation of how many calories, fat, carbs, and protein are in a ribeoye steak.

Now again its an average size steak, nothing out of the ordinary. Is the average size steak 8 oz?

But ya if someone could give me an estimate on the calories, fat, carbs, and protein it would be greatly apprecaited thx

An 8 ounce ribeye typically contains:*

Calories: 540 (range 465 to 601)
Protein: 63 grams (range 60 to 65 grams)
Fat: 30 grams (range 20 to 38 grams)
CHO: 0 grams

Every steak is different (as Pug just indicated and how he as indicated to me in the past). Lately, I've been doing my best to conduct research, ballpark a range and assume that the amount of protein is on the lower end. Some factors that will effect the nutrition estimations:
1. If the meat is already cooked (generally use the pre-cooked weight)
2. If the meat has been aged (the longer it's aging, the more water it loses)
3. Bone content

You can also visually inspect the meat to get a general idea. Two ribeyes might be very different. Like these:

Note the right is the ribeye, the left is a strip.

New York Strip, a little salt/pepper, grilled over charcoal/mesquite chips = WIN.

Actually, same deal for the Ribeye too!

As a note, nutritiondata.com has a ton of steak and how many calories is in it raw. For steak, these are the factors that influence calories:

(1) Grade - USDA Prime will have much more fat than Choice or Select and that's because there's a minimum marbling requirement for such grades. This is where you want to look when searching out your calories on Nutritiondata as they allow you to see calories for specific grades.
(2) Trim length - Another very important part. Majority of the fat is on the outside of a steak and it's thickness (which you can see on nutritiondata.com) will vary. You can search using 1/8", 1/4" or 0".
(3) Separable Lean and Fat - If you use separable lean only (that means you remove all removable fat, which won't include the marbling in the meat) then the calories will be much lower.

If you used Top Sirloin with 0" trimming and all separable fat removed, you'll have something ridiculous like 100g of protein and 18g of fat for a 1lb steak (16oz). Nutritiondata has this information for all steaks and not all of them (unfortunately) have the raw information but they will provide you information for cooked version and how much raw was used.

I don't have those options, so I pan fry them in butter until crisp, then wrap in tin foil and bake at 400f for a few minutes, thickness dependent. So good.
