Select prime rib steaks

Had dinner guests at our lake house Saturday. Since there is nothing better than a great prime rib on the egg, I called the local independent grocery and ordered 8 one inch prime rib steaks. When I picked them up Friday I said said they are choice, right. Butcher said they were select but assured me they would be fine. Got home and looked at them, little or no marbling, realized I might be in trouble. Cooked a test steak Friday night, perfect medium rare but it was pretty tasteless and a little chewy. decided not to serve these steaks to our guests so I replaced steak with spatchcock which was great.
Now the question: what do I do with seven mediocre steaks? Grind into burger, cook as usual, slice thin and serve with BBQ sauce, jerky or ???

    Beef Vegetable Soup and freeze it. You'll be glad you did in January.

    Thanks,

    Take them back to the grocer and demand a full refund. Not what was claimed and did not perform up to expectations and IMO, you were pretty clear with the butcher about your expectations.
  • marinate them. make Fajitas, stuff like that
