National Prime Rib Day – April 27, 2019

Sat Apr 27

Everyone knows you can find prime rib at nice steakhouses, but can you actually buy it from your neighborhood grocer? Probably not. In honor of National Prime Rib Day, let’s hear from the experts at Plano, Texas’ Matador Prime Steak: “Most grocery stores do not sell prime grade beef.  Most grocery stores sell select and choice.  This grade is established by the packing house and is based primarily on the fat content of the animal.”

And now you know.

One other morsel: Prime rib, also known as “standing rib roast,” is a tender, flavorful roast cut from the center of the rib section of the steer.
