Question: What is the perfect cut of beef?

Question: What is the perfect cut of beef?

A plate of juicy steak, mashed potatoes, greens and various sauces.

Answer: Prime Rib.

       Firstly, it’s tender and juicy: Prime rib comes from the rib section of the beef, specifically the primal rib, which is known for its tenderness and marbling. The marbling refers to the intramuscular fat that is distributed throughout the meat, providing moisture and tenderness when cooked. This fat marbling melts during cooking, resulting in a juicy and succulent texture.  

      Secondly, it’s rich in flavor: The marbling in prime rib not only contributes to its tenderness but also enhances its flavor. The fat adds a rich and buttery taste to the meat, creating a mouthwatering experience. Additionally, the rib section contains a combination of lean meat and fat, which adds depth and complexity to the overall flavor profile.  

     Thirdly, it’s well-marbled texture: The fat marbling in prime rib gives it a smooth and luxurious texture. As you bite into a properly cooked prime rib, the fat melts in your mouth, delivering a luscious and velvety sensation. This desirable texture contributes to the overall enjoyment of eating prime rib.  

     Fourthly, it’s versatility: Prime rib is a versatile cut of beef that can be cooked in various ways to suit different preferences. It can be roasted, grilled, or seared, allowing for a range of cooking techniques that bring out different flavors and textures. This versatility makes it an excellent choice for special occasions or gourmet meals.  

    Lastly, it’s presentation: Prime rib is an impressive and visually appealing cut of meat. Its large size and elegant appearance make it a popular choice for holiday feasts and celebratory meals. The marbling and bone-in presentation make for an enticing centerpiece that adds to the overall dining experience.

      We run Prime Rib several times a year.  We run it to close out our Anniversary in March, we run it for Father’s Day and a few more times commemorating special occasions throughout the year.  Some of us have been lobbying to have it once a week!  Maybe that will happen maybe it wont but when we do run it there is something truly special about sitting in the pub with a pint of Stout or Pale Ale and digging into this masterpiece served alongside buttery mashed, crispy and slightly sweet glazed brussels and accompanied with jus and horsey sauce.  So stay connected and come see us the next time we run The Scotsman Prime Rib Special. It wont disappoint.
