In the Absence of Harry's - Standing Rib
« on: December 14, 2014, 08:50:51 AM »
We have always gotten a standing rib roast from Harry's for New Year's.  It was nice because they could custom cut it to the size and from the end we wanted.  Who has some tips on where to go now now?

I think almost anywhere will custom cut it for you if you ask. I don't have a specific store in mind but I will say that in my experience, I wouldn't bother trying to find some superior grade for prime rib. Regular, supermarket prime rib roasts are pretty terrific. I happened to notice yesterday in a flyer that Save a Lot has them on sale for $5.99 a pound. Doesn't get much cheaper than that. Publix or Kroger often have specials around the holidays. Happy prime ribbing!

We get ours at Fresh Market and have always been very pleased with the quality. I do think if you want a custom cut it would be wise to order a bit in advance due to customer meat frenzy they are subject to every holiday.

We ended up getting a dry aged, 5 bone, second cut from Spotted Trotter.
Brought it home, sliced off the bones, salted it and tied it all up again to age a couple of extra days in the fridge.
It was a very high quality roast.
Their customer service for the ordering process was outstanding.
We were very pleased and would not hesitate to go back to them for one in the future.
