We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Rule of thumb is 1 lb of meat per person, so it's difficult to make for over 8-9 people, really, without a commercial oven. That's why people make filet instead of prime rib for parties and have their prime rib in restaurants - but I think most people prefer a prime rib (technically "choice," not "prime" and technically, as reader notes, "standing rib roast"). It's the perfect food for human beings, along with mashed potatoes.
The correct term is "Standing Rib Roast", not "Prime Rib", a commercial misnomer. It would be prime if graded as such, but that is unlikely in the retail market as the majority of prime beef is sold to restaurants, hotels and such.
Could the meat be cooked a bit more? That looks too pink for me. I was raised on a farm and we always cooked the meat to the point it was not pink on the inside. It may have been paranoia, but we made sure to avoid any kind of infectious diseases from the animals in a "better safe than sorry" attitude. Great piece of meat, but I am into 'well done."
I really enjoy this site and the links. Good travel photos and such. Great comments as well.
