It’s easier than you might think to cook the perfect prime rib and wow your family at your holiday table. We’ve got some tips below to help you succeed.
Buying prime rib
Prime rib is actually a cooking method, not a cut of meat. The proper name is standing rib-eye roast. However, if you head to our stores and ask for prime rib, our butchers will know what you mean. Plus, we’ve got great prices on standing rib-eye roast to help you save this season.
Not sure how much you need? Plan for one rib for every two people. When in doubt, ask our butchers.
Cooking prime rib
A meat thermometer is critical to prime rib perfection. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the roast, careful not to touch the bone. Meat continues to cook while resting, so remove the roast five to 10 degrees shy of your desired internal temperature.
Let it rest. After removing the roast from the oven, lightly tent with foil and let rest for 10 to 30 minutes before serving.
Shop prime rib and save.
