Prime rib prep question??
« on: December 16, 2017, 01:54:20 PM »
Normally we buy a prime rib that is prepped and has the bones cut then tied back on. Just picked up a 20 lb rib from Safeway for 4.77 a pound but it’s not prepped, do I need to cut the ribs off and trim fat or can I just cook as is?

The ribs and fat give it flavor. If there is a ton of fat on it, trim some, but not all of it. Fat side up.
I couldn't care less about what anybody says..............

you can cook it as is.  If you French/truss/trim, it just makes it showy and easier to carve.

I season, pack with salt and cook. Trim the ribs after cooking for those that want them. I personally don't have a problem gnawing on a bone after eating a fine slab of prime rib meat. If you don't have a ton of people, the rib bones are a great indicator of how to portion your steaks.

Good grief, not to threadjack but $4.77/lb is a killer deal.
And like has been said, trim a little but definitely leave the ribs on.

How large are they?  Cash and Carry is more expensive but their roasts come in about 15lbs.  What size are Safeway's?

Bone in for sure! Great flavor and insurance. You can easily remove after cooking. I only do prime rib if I have have a few days to age it. Aging it packs more flavor in every bite.

Then you are aging it, just at the wrong temperature!
