hi chowhounds: i'm possessed of the urge to cook a big roast but i have no idea where to get one. preferably it would be well raised meat but not excessively expensive...any ideas?
I tried a bone-in prime rib roast from Costco a year or two back, it's not dry-aged so the flavor's not to my taste. I'd rather roast lamb or pork.
I order my annual roast from Cafe Rouge in Berkeley. I believe Niman's their supplier for prime rib.
Two years ago I got a Marin Sun Farms grass-fed from Baron's. It was good but I prefer the flavor of the grain-finished Niman.
Magnanis in Berkeley has prime rib roast priced at $11.99/lb -- I know b/c that's what I'm making!
