place to buy whole prime rib

lhpangler Nov 13, 2012 04:21 PM

Hey Chowers...
I need to find a place to buy whole prime ribs around baltimore. I have about 60 people coming to a party. I am looking for other options rather than costco. Is there a restaurant depot around?

    Any decent butcher shop should be able to get it for you. I don't know around Baltimore. I used to get them at a shop in Damascus, but they are closed now. There is a place in Mt Airy, but I don't know if that is too far for you to go.

      thanks everyone. I was kinda looking for a good deal. Last week at Lotte Asian market, they have whole filet Mignon for about $6 a pound. There rib eyes are about $4 a pound, but the meat is always sliced.

      You might be able to special order it from the Laurel Meat Market or JW Treuth.

        There is a Restaurant Depot in B-more - 3405 Annapolis Road-Baltimore (410) 354-4030
        or Costco

          Why not Costco?

          I envy yor for having a kitchen with enough oven space to cook Prime Rib for 60. You doing Yorkshire pudding too?

            Costco can sometimes be pricey, but I love them as a butcher. I am guessing it might run about $8 a pound. No yorkshire pudding this time; rather I am making a roasted beet salad with goat cheese and a fruity balsamic dressing something like this:

              No Yorkshire pudding?! Why don't you just go to the mall and scream "there is no such thing as Santa!"

              The world is becoming such a sad . . . sad place . . . .

                Sorry drewpbalzac,
                I don't have enough room in my oven. I only have one popover tray that makes six and I would need 60. Maybe Santa will drop off a batch about 6pm that evening.

            Can you get a roast with the ribs already separated from the roast (but still included)from Costco?

              Yes. In which case I like setting into a rack so the meat does not sit in the drippings. If you are in a jam, you can crush up some foil to make two "rods" to set the roast on. I also think you could use wine corks.
