Standing Rib Roast near Providence
I will be doing a prime rib for Christmas Dinner. Last time I made prime rib I got the roast at Whole Foods. Anyone have a suggestion for a better option, either in terms of price or quality?
I buy my holiday beast at BJ's. They have great product at good price and will trim it for you or debone if you'd like.
Stop & Shop has good choice beef; starting Friday (?) large end rib roasts are $4.99/lb. w/S&S card. I like to let it dry unwrapped in the fridge before boning, seasoning & tying a day before roasting. You can't lose at the price. Good luck & merry Christmas!
Purchase a choice rib roast if you need the whole thing then go to BJ's or Sams CLub of even better go to a whole sale reataurant place they will sell it on a cash and carry basis if its too much meat then go to Whole Foods they trim it well no waste and ask for the Small- Loin end near the back of the rib. Its leaner and more meat to fat ratio. If you want to home age is just wrap the meat in about 3 layers of cheese cloth and place it in the bottom of the ref make sure its at least 40 degrees. for 8-10 days so hurry up. I have already done this. Then just trim any dry pieces out. Its a bit expensive but Xmas only comes once a year. A lot or stores give cheap deals on rib roasts but this cut it closer to the chuck which means a lot of fat.
