Prime rib is a cut of beef that comes from the rib section of the cow. It is also known as a standing rib roast or a beef rib roast. The term “prime” refers to the highest grade of beef, but not all prime rib is necessarily graded as “prime” by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Prime rib is typically roasted in the oven and seasoned with salt, pepper, and other spices to enhance its flavor. It is often served as a main course for special occasions, such as Christmas or Thanksgiving. The meat is tender and flavorful, with a rich marbling of fat that melts during cooking and adds to the taste and texture of the finished dish.
The prime rib can be served rare, medium-rare, or well-done, depending on your preference. It is often accompanied by sides such as potatoes, vegetables, or a salad, and can be served with a variety of sauces, including horseradish sauce or gravy.
