How to Sous Vide Beef Prime Rib Roast
I tend to cook my prime rib as slabs of 1 to 2 bones instead of a single roast which gives me the benefit of a quicker cooking time and makes it easier to cook them to different temperatures as needed. Even though prime rib is tender, longer cooking times don't hurt it and I usually go 4 to 8 hours, though you can always cook them by thickness.
Prime rib can be one of the most theatrical dishes in a steakhouse, especially when it is sliced tableside from a larger roast. Prime rib is usually bought as large rib roasts and is often ordered from the butcher by the amount of ribs in it. A 2 to 3 rib prime rib roast will usually weigh about 2 to 3 pounds and will easily feed 4 people with leftovers. Prime rib and ribeye come from the same cut of beef, from the rib primal, but ribeye is cut before cooking, while prime rib is left whole.
I tend to cook my prime rib as slabs of 1 to 2 bones instead of a single roast. This gives me the benefit of a quicker cooking time and makes it easier to cook them to different temperatures as needed. It also maximizes the searing area, which adds even more flavor. One of the best prime ribs I had was first cut off the roast then seasoned with a spicy Cajun rub and seared on both sides.
Even though prime rib is tender, longer cooking times don't hurt it much. Most of the prime rib I eat is for Christmas dinner and I end up cooking it 5 to 10 hours because we are never sure when we are actually going to eat. You can always cook them by thickness though and get the time down to just a few hours.
There are many ways to finish prime rib, but my two favorites are a horseradish sauce or garlic and herb paste. For a large prime rib, I usually use a torch or the broiler in my oven turned up to high because it can be hard to fit a big one into a pan for searing. For slabs, I usually pan sear them or use a real hot grill.
The "prime" in prime rib is usually associated with USDA's "Prime" grade. But, in reality, it has nothing to do with the USDA. Real "prime USDA graded meat" is actually a very rare cut of meat that gets dubbed as prime by them. Their "prime" rib is deeply marbled with intramuscular fat which results in a mouthwatering dish. However, these prime beefs are only sold to the finest restaurants or to consumers who order it via express shipping or sold in high end and selective butcher shops and grocery stores.
However the prime rib you and I can easily consume actually carry a USDA's rating of "choice" which is a lower rating than "prime". But regular prime ribs are already so tender that it stills makes a delicious meal with a succulent taste of its own. You can recognize the prime rib by its fine grained quality and generous marbling.
Prime rib roast is a cut of beef from the rib primal cut. This roast is comprised of 2 to 7 ribs from the cow's rib section. A seven-bone rib weighs more than 16 pounds while a three-bone rib would weigh four to eight pounds. A three-bone rib is sufficient to feed around 6 people.
In the US, prime rib roasts are cooked on special occasions like Christmas. It is rubbed with salt and seasonings like pepper, onion power and garlic power. Some even rub the roast with thyme and rosemary to bring out a delicious aroma of the prime rib roast.
This is one of the most beefy, tender and craved cuts of all. It is also commonly known as standing rib roast because you can place the roast in standing position by setting it on its rib bones on the roasting pan. No rack is required. When the bones are removed from the prime rib roast, it is called ribeye.
When the prime rib roast is sliced it yields many types of delicious rib steaks. The prime rib steak is made from the same rib section which is located between the chuck and short loin section. The beef from this section is smooth and rich in flavor. The steak is attached with rib bone that adds more flavor to the beef.
When you remove the bone and fat from this steak, it will result in a ribeye steak.
You can make a delicious prime rib steak by seasoning it with simple ingredients like salt and pepper. If you want to add more spices and herbs, be sure to add them in small quantity because overdoing it would ruin your steak. In short this is an easy and tasty meal that one can make any time because it is enjoyed by many.
