For those of you that want the Prime rib recipe. Your work has begun.
Please review the photos..a high grade of beef is essential in this recipe.
No offence regarding anyones knowledge of beef grade/quality intended here.
But to insure this recipe results in a great meal, the highest quality of the meat
is a must and I feel obligated to pass this on.
These are three grades of beef available (for the most part) to the public these days . Prime (on the left, moderate to abundant marbling), Choice (center, moderate marbling) and the new kid on the block
Select (on the right, little to no marbling)....Select has just come on the mass market
within the last 10-15 yrs I think. Select used to be used for hamburger, hot dogs, stew meat.
It was not marketed whole....NEVER BUY SELECT unless you have a very specific
use for very low quality meat!! IT'S JUNK!!!!!!!!!
What makes the difference? Marbling, or streaks/veins of fat running through the meat.
The more the better.....Prime is going to be cost prohibitive for most people.
Only a small percent of all meat is prime, 10% in the U.S.
Of that the vast majority is sold to upscale restaurants.
Have no fear...the upper level of Choice works well!
Choice has subgrades ..so just try an get as close as possible to the pic of
Prime when you shop...Great stuff does slip through to the grocery.
The bottom line here is this ...Buy the most marbled piece of meat you can find.
This may take some time to find, but it's key to a wonderful meal.
So start looking...and buy WITH RIBS..a two rib roast will feed three adults...about 5-6 lbs.
So here's the deal...Start watching what your favorite grocery is putting out there.
You want as close to the Prime as you can get..
