This Saturday, April 27th, is National Prime Rib Day and in my opinion, any holiday involving meat is one worth celebrating. A lot of folks are intimidated by cooking prime rib, sometimes known as the “king of meats,” but all it takes is a good cut of beef and a few hours of patience.
Out of the different ways to prepare prime rib, my favorite method is grilling. I think it’s the easiest way to prepare the meat, not to mention the most delicious. All you need is a grill, a meat thermometer, seasoning and an 8 to 12 pound standing beef rib roast.
When buying the meat from your local butcher, make sure you request a USDA Choice or Prime standing rib roast with a nice marbling. Prime rib is cut from the primal rib, which is one of the primal cuts of beef, and includes two to seven ribs.
This Saturday is going to be a beautiful day for grilling, so I suggest you get a nice cut of prime rib, a cold Shiner, and get to cooking. Also, be sure to tell us about your favorite prime rib recipe or cooking method on our Facebook page.
