Center cut Prime rib roast of beef

johnniedoo | May 24, 201902:21 PM     3

I began to shop on line and using a new supermarket and see this new to me nomenclature. they say they sell certified angus prime beef and offer a center cut up to 4bones i believe. i am not clear on this, i've always gotten by either small or large end, or ribs 1-3 , 4-8 or all 7 as they were sold in the other market. all the beef ,probably meat comes pre trimmed pre cut , cryovac bagged and pre labeled with bar code name of cut and price. no one knows what the heck is going on at the store. far cry from my old local butcher. i no longer drive and hard to get around so cant go from store to store as i had been doing so easily. anyway, it got my interest up. i bought center cut and first cut already, only had choice though. prime advertised was not there and i got substituted . mistake on their part. so i am stuck with center cut choice angus beef and not clear if i should roast it or put it into a pot to braise. looks good but no marbling but this is not uncommon anymore all the big push on grass fed beef as choice, used to be called select. first time was ok juicy, tasty but a dinner fork had a hard time picking up pieces with a light stick. rib roast was more tender.
