About this cut
The King of Roasts is ready for your next celebration! Our Prime Rib Roast is a gourmet, well-marbled, richly-flavored beef roast, cut from our best Black Angus cattle, which are bred for tenderness and raised in the US on pasture with no hormones or antibiotics. We carefully wet-age our beef on a precise and proprietary aging cycle, before it is vacuum sealed and flash frozen at peak quality. With a tight seal, you can enjoy this meat from your freezer for up to 2 years with no loss of quality--but who's waiting to enjoy this one, let's be real here!
In our Prime Rib Roast, we separate the bones from the roast, and then net them together, so that the bones infuse the roast with extra flavor during cooking, but they are easily removed (and enjoyed in the kitchen, perhaps? chef's treat!) before serving. (Want the bones intact? Check out our Butcher's Cut Standing Rib Roast)
Serves 2-3 people per lb.

It is sustained by our deep relationships with our partners, including multi-generational slaughterhouses and family farms. We take care every step of the way to make sure the meat is raised well, processed humanely, expertly butchered, carefully packaged, delivered seamlessly and prepared with confidence in your kitchen.

Basic Cooking Technique:
Roast at medium to high heat. Tent with foil and let rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. Remove netting and separate ribs from eye before slicing.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

After I defrosted the roast I put a liberal amount of pepper and salt over the whole roast, placed it on the rack of a roasting pan, and let it sit in the fridge from Tuesday evening till Friday midday. There was barely a tablespoon of liquid on the bottom of the pan! I rubbed the whole roast with Back of the Yards (Spice House) and placed the roast in a 170 F oven. I checked the temperature every 30 mins to make sure the internal temperature would not exceed 120 F. When the internal temperature of the whole roast was at least 120 F, I took the roast out of the oven and tented it with thin foil. After about 1.5 hours and when the oven had reached 550 F on "bake", we put the roast back in the oven (without the tin foil) for about 8-10 mins. We checked the internal temperature every few minutes to make sure it wouldn't exceed 135 F (Medium rare) and then took the roast out of the oven. It came out beautiful! The meat was nice and pink but not raw. It was very tender and flavorful. We loved it. There also was a lot of meat on the ribs after we sliced the meat off.
Very beefy tasting, Would like to have more of the fat cap left on the roast.
The tastiest, most tender roast beef ws’ve Ever had! Delicious!

How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
