Description of Rib Roast

Some classic dishes of American cuisine are made from the cuts obtained from the beef rib primal cut, including prime rib and the standing rib roast. The rib primal cut consists of seven ribs, ribs 6 to 12.

It lies between the shoulder and the short loin, just above the plate. The ribs closer to the chuck area in this section are bigger than the ones located near the short loin area. Some of the best roasts are made from this primal cut.

Since there are seven ribs in total in this section, the ribs are chopped into smaller chunks. One rib is typically sufficient to feed two people.

The rib roast can be cooked in many styles. For example, the standing rib roast is a roast cooked with the bones. While the large end rib roast is a part of the rib that is located near the chuck. Since it is located near the chuck, it tends to be bigger and tougher. On the other hand the small end rib roast is leaner and more tender because it is located near the short loin primal cut.

In conclusion, the rib roast is a great choice to cook in special occasions like Christmas and Easter. When cooked right, it turns out succulent and flavorsome which makes your lunch or dinner a memorable one!
