Cumbrae’s Great Alternative Grilling Steaks, Part 1

GREAT ALTERNATIVE GRILLING STEAKS

In this video, Cumbrae’s owner Stephen Alexander gives you the insight into the relatively unexplored world of alternative grilling steaks. We explore the part of the animal the cuts come from, how to best prepare them and how to ask for and select the best one for your individual palate.

These alternative grilling steaks are important to Cumbrae’s nose-to-tail eating philosophy and sustainable farming practices. Not to mention, they are also great value at half the price of premium cuts and are a great way to serve steak at a big summer BBQ. Enjoy!

The Cumbrae’s tradition of farm-to-fork quality started over a decade ago when third-generation butcher Stephen Alexander first brought Cumbrae Farms’ naturally raised meats to Toronto’s food connoisseurs.

Cumbrae’s has become Toronto’s meeting place for people who love to buy, prepare and eat great food. For leading chefs, ardent connoisseurs and families who value quality, Cumbrae’s enthusiastic staff set the standard for personal service, great cooking advice and true enjoyment of food.

Total Prep and Cook Time: 3 hours 10 minutes

What You’ll Need:

One beef rib roast, standing (about four to seven ribs))
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Large grain salt (kosher salt) about one half tsp per bone
Half tbsp of softened butter per rib
Roasting pan (large) with no less than three inch sides
Two tbsp of flour
One quart of beef broth (keep cold)

What To Do:

Take prime rib from fridge and put in pan. You will not need a rack because the rib bones make a natural one. Rub the whole surface of the roast with the butter, and then coat it evenly with you salt and black pepper.

Leave your prime rib at room temperature for two hours. Preheat oven to four-hundred and fifty degrees F. When oven is hot, put in roast and cook it for twenty minutes to sear outside of roast. After twenty minutes turn down oven to three-hundred twenty-five degrees F. Roast until desired internal temperature is reached (see the guide below). Medium-rare will take about fifteen minutes per pound.

Transfer in large platter, and let rib rest, loosely cover it with foil for thirty minutes before serving. If you cut into meat too early it will cause a loss of juice.

To Make Your “Au Jus” Sauce:

While rib is resting, pour off all but two Tbsp of the fat from pan and  then place on your stove top over med heat. Add some flour and cook, stir for five minutes to form roux. Pour in beef broth and whisk into roux. Scrape all caramelized drippings from bottom of the pan.

Turn heat to high, cook sauce for ten minutes until reduced and thickened slightly (will not be heavy sauce). Adjust seasoning as needed. Then strain and serve with the prime rib.

Internal Temperature Guide:

These are the temps to remove the beef, and not the final temp. Roast will continue to cook after it’s removed.

Rare: remove @ 110 degrees F. (final temp about 120)

Medium-Rare: remove @ 120 degrees F. (final temp about 130)

Medium: remove @ 130 degrees F. (final temp about 140)

Facing America’s High Dropout Rates

This is the VOA Special English Education Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com

Fewer than sixty percent of students now entering four-year American colleges are likely to graduate. The completion rate is lower than for almost any other wealthy country. Poor and minority students have the worst graduation rate.

A new book about America’s public universities explores the complex causes of the high dropout rate. The book is called “Crossing the Finish Line.”

President Obama wants the United States to again have the world’s highest percentage of college graduates by two thousand twenty. But to finish college, children first have to reach the starting line by getting there.

On September eighth, the president gave a nationally broadcast speech to students about the importance of staying in school. He spoke on the first day of classes at a high school in Virginia. He talked about personal responsibility, and used himself as an example of someone who overcame difficulties.

President Obama said: “My father left my family when I was two years old, and I was raised by a single mother who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasnt always able to give us things the other kids had. There were times when I missed having a father in my life. There were times when I was lonely and felt like I didnt fit in.”

But he told students that problems in their own lives should not stop them from learning. Mister Obama said: “That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class or dropping out of school. Thats no excuse for not trying.”

This was not the first presidential speech to students. Ronald Reagan spoke from the White House in nineteen eighty-eight. And George H.W. Bush spoke from a school in Washington in nineteen ninety-one.

But many conservatives criticized plans for the speech. Some called it “socialized education” or federal interference in local schools. Others feared it would be too political. Some schools decided not to show the speech. But the White House released the text the day before the speech, and that calmed a lot of critics.

On September sixth, on the CBS program “Face the Nation,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said thirty percent of students do not graduate from high school. He called the dropout rate “staggering.” It represents more than a million students every year who enter ninth grade but do not complete twelfth grade.

And that’s the VOA Special English Education Report.

How is Prime Rib different from Roast Beef?

Are they the same?

Prime rib refers to a whole or large cut of rib eye roasted then sliced and served. Roast beef can be any cut from the cow.

Prime can also be used to describe the quality of the particular cut. Prime, choice, and select in that order are the 3 top qualities. After select it’s only fit for ground beef and dog food.

Do you think that a Kosher diet is better for you?

Isn’t kosher meat supposed to have no fillers?
And isn’t usually better quality, since its a higher pricing. ?
And pork and pig is usually bad for you, or at least the way we make it. Do you think keeping it out of your diet (kosher) is good for you too?

Scientific proof please? Like info about fats, fillers. Thanks

Kosher is preparation, other than no swine the food isn’t any better or worse.
