Hi everyone! I'm a little confused about roast beef. Is it prime rib cut really thin or something totally different? I'm looking for the "roast beef" like you get at weddings and/or company functions. I'm cooking for the family on Easter, the word is they want a ham and maybe roast beef. Any comments/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all![p]DK

    DK-DK, I agree with you! This forum is meant to be a help to the question's and newbies posts. Its seems that it's become a bulletin board for self flatulence.

    DK,
    Not sure whether this will help, but here it goes. Prime rib is the same as a standing rib roast. You can either purchase it with the rib bones attached, or you can buy it boneless. (I believe boneless roast consists of the rib eye.) We prefer the roast with the ribs still attached. Prior to cooking, we cut the rib bones off, place slices of onion/shallot, slivers of garlic, spices and even bacon between the meaty part of the roast and the ribs. We then reattach the ribs with butchers twine, season the entire roast, and place it in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator overnight. We remove it from the icebox and bring it to room temperature for appox. 1 hour or so prior to cooking on the egg. Once it is cooked, we detach the bones and let it rest for 20 minutes or so for easier slicing.[p]If you have a little time, you can check out the BGE archives. There is a picture of a prime rib attached to one of the posts for 22 Aug. 1999.[p]Hope this helps.
