Prime Beef

what makes USDA prime cuts of beef so "prime"?

The Trump steaks extole quasi-mythical virtues to the steaks they sell, before flogging them off at quasi-galactic prices.
Can anyone tell me why? Is the beef organic and free from hormones? Do the cows get massages and drink beer, like the ones Kobe beef comes from?

Prime beef is thoroughly and evenly marbled with fat in it which makes it more tender and juicy than select.

Above Prime would be Prime Certified Angus Beef and WAY above that would be the Kobe beef, which typically retails for $100/pound or more and is often eaten raw.

This is what the different grades look like:

is there a substitute cut of beef for prime rib?

I’d like to do a standing rib roast but, not real keen on spending so much money. The last one i did was about $40. I have an excellent recipe that I use. I know it won’t be the same but, anything tasty that you’ve tried?
i shopped at Publix on the monday after easter and they had just gone off sale but, the associate in the meat dept (who is also my next-door neighbor) suggested Winn Dixie and alas, crisis averted. Got a 3-rib roast for a mere $25.

Always wait until the standing rib roast or prime rib goes on sale to buy. That’s the best way to afford it. Nothing compares to a good Prime Rib roast. It’s the best. They’re costly, but if you keep your eyes on the weekly grocery sales, you can find them on sale mostly during holidays.

The only cut I can think of that is like that is the rib eye steak, and that, indeed, is a steak.
Good luck.
