Perfect Prime Rib Roast (Standing Rib Roast) -
What is a Prime Rib Roast?
A tender cut of beef taken from the rib primal. A Prime Rib Roast is also often referred to as "Standing Rib Roast." It is very tender, flavorful, and expensive.
A slice of uncooked prime rib roast is really a "rib steak" which includes the "rib eye" portion.
A full prime rib/standing rib roast is seven
(7) ribs, close to 15 pounds, and enough to feed a crowd of 14 or more
people (depending on how big of eaters they are). The term "standing"
means the bones are included in the roast, thus the roast can stand by
itself. A rib roast comprises of seven ribs starting from the shoulder
(chuck) down the back to the loin.
