Prime Rib stats.......What?
I did another whole rib roast today so for fun I thought I would give you guys the stats. I'm always in a quandary about how much meat to start with. I have two neighbors that each wanted prime rib for Christmas. one has 8 guests coming and the other has 10 coming plus wants some left overs. I bought a whole cryoed rib roast. Here are the stats.
15.57 lbs Whole roast
12.37 lbs after trimming........this was a loss of 20%
10.4 lbs Meat left after cooking........16% loos after cooking.......or 33% less than the whole roast.
I cooked it at 225 to 235.
I pulled it at 122.
It cooked a little over 2 1/2 hours
It was a perfect med rare minus.
I cryoed the meat to hold till Saturday when it will be served.
I made the Au Jus which will be used to heat up the meat thus cooking it a little more.
Both neighbors want to serve the meat on buns so I figure that they will have plenty. The one with 8 diners has 4 lbs of meat. I figure that there will be at least 1.5 lbs left over.
The one with 10 diners has 6 lbs so she should have a lot for the kids to take home.
