Why do steaks get rubs but rib roasts don't?

Midlife | Dec 12, 201105:31 PM

I was just looking at two posts here. One asks about recipes for standing rib roasts, the other is about steak rubs.

It seems as if people use all kinds of ingredients in steak rubs but standing rib roasts are very basic..... salt and pepper..... maybe a variant,but not much.

I'm curious as to why this is. Is it just tradition or is their something about the bulk of a rib roast that gives it more flavor when it is simply cooked....... or would a rub really not penetrate enough into the large cut of a roast? Or?????????????????
