1Yes, I also saw that first translation which doesn't give the right definition I'm afraid. I think 'antrykot' ,as they call it in Poland, is the closest I'll get, thanks :)

2#1, prosię = pig - I suppose OP would like a beef steak.
OP, indeed rib-eye = antrykot (or antrykot wołowy, to make 100% sure you mean beef). For a steak, the most precise translation would probably be "stek wołowy z antrykotu". To avoid confusion I would suggest mentioning the English name too - beef and beef steaks are not that popular in Poland.

4Thanks battybilly, I appreciate that.
thanks, igur, I can just imagine asking my local butcher (here in Poland) for some rib eye steak.... he'd look at me like as if I had fallen from the moon, I think I'd have more luck taking a picture of the steak along with me, but thank you for your help anyway:)

6I've lived in Poland for the past twenty years and have had that 'look' aimed at me any time I ask for something untypical, but then that might be because of my slightly foreign accent:)
I do remember, though, asking the head butcher, ok so it was in the meat dept at my local Carrefour supermarket, if they had any free-range chickens and he literally laughed out loud and somewhat brusquely derided my request claiming there was no such thing as real free-range chicken... I no longer had the audacity to ask about anything else...
Still, I'll go to a bigger meat market and try my luck:)
