A local small chain of stores has "Standing Rib Eye Roast" for $4.95 per lb.

Is this a good price?


Is a "Standing Rib Eye Roast" the same as a "Prime Rib Roast"?

The term prime in prime rib predates usda gradings of choice select and prime. Possibly rib primal?

Either way itll be good. Look for marbling and a nice rib cap (outer muscle)

For comparison i saw nice looking bone in choice at kroger for $6 or 7 a lbs. Boneless is $9 lbs at costco last year

Same deal no difference at all, unless you buy an actual "Prime" roast as in the grade of the beef.

Prime having nothing to do with the USDA grading of beef. I was told it was prime rib if it is a cut from a certain rib range.

^^^agreed!

I picked up a boneless at Sam's Club last Sat morning, I have a business card so we get in a little early on Saturday. It could be just my imagination, but it seems like they always/sometimes put out nicer cuts of meat during those hours...anyway found a real nice one, brought it home, vacuumed sealed it and into the frig until New Years. We have a tradition of having prime rib for lunch on New years day.

"Prime Rib" was called that due to the fact it's a 'Primal Cut', from the Rib.
The grading of the meat matters.
Select should be avoided, no marbling in evidence.
Choice is very good, pick one that's marbled.
A Prime grade roast is silly marbled, gonna set you back $$.

So...I got the whole rack, 21 lbs. Iím assuming that includes the prime section.

Iím in the process of moving so neither house has an oven. I was thinking of trying to cram the whole 21 lbs into my toaster oven, what do you think? ;-) jk.

I probably wouldnít know a ďprimeĒ cut of meat if it bit me in the mouth but judging from the end itís got pretty good marbling.

Iíve got a friend whoís a meat cutter. Iím gonna have him cut it up for me. I was thinking 1/3? - 1/4? - 1/2? left whole for a roast and then cut the rest into rib eye steaks.

Good? Bad? Ideas? Suggestions?

If it doesn't I'll be able to smell my mistake.:sick:

It'll keep longer with no air pockets, some think that in a real cool frig that you can wet age them a little more.

Yea, by two.. I will let you know that here in Florida a lot of the Meat Markets have an economy line of meat that is imported from Mexico. It will actually say product of Mexico, non USDA. The USDA grade meat will be there but I significantly higher price. This is where I draw the line so you may want to ask when you get there.
