How much does the bone weigh in a fore-rib of beef?

I was put off by the price recently, but having done some quick maths, ~£11 per kg actually seems quite reasonable. It all depends on how much the bone weighs (approximately) and how much actual meat I'm getting.

Considering sirloin is about double the cost, I actually eat about 8 ounce steaks I think. So a £15 rib should feed three ok if we get about 250g each, as long as the bone doesn't weigh more than 500g or so.

Oh, and I saw something on TV where they pan-seared the rib, then put it in the oven, presumably to cook on low for ages. Would anybody be able to point me to a similar recipe?
Incidentally, that program said 1 rib would serve 2 people. Did look nice though.

Actually, miy girlfriend's twin sister is coming down for the weekend, and though I don't particularly like her much, I might cook up something nice.

Any ideas what to cook with the fore-rib for (probably) sunday lunch? Chunky Goose-fat home made chips and bernaise sauce? Maybe spinach and asparagus..
