I bought a 10kg AAA prime rib "roast" today... So uhhhh, now what?
Sale at sams club, I'm sure some of you already figured that much out...
So what's my best plan? It's just me and my wife here, and our 1 year old is a light eater! Should I make roasts, then some steaks? All roasts? If so, how many ribs?
I counted 7 large ribs. I'll be freezing them after packaging well.
Since most meals are for the wife and I, standing rib roast don't make sense unless we're entertaining.
I remove the ribs from the roast and freeze them for the grill, trim away any excess fat, then break the meat down into a couple of 3 to 4 pound roast, an equal number of roughly 10-12 ounce steaks, then cube and/or grind whatever is left after that.
You can also cut and leave the steaks on the bone.
When cutting or cooking a standing rib roast, figure on one rib making to servings.
p.s. Cubing left over prime rib, cube and par boil an equal amount of potato (drain them after), rough chop and onion and some garlic mix it together and fry it until well browned, makes good hash.
I find that a single rib cut (probably about 1kg +/- 200g or so) usually suits two people well. Sear it for about 3 minutes each side(and on the edge if it's a thick piece) then whack it in a pretty hot oven for around 20 minutes. Slice after a few minutes resting. Sort of half way house from steak to roast.
