Is Prime Rib Roast Beef or steak?
Looks like NONE of you guys knew for sure either!
Prime rib is a cut. Prime rib can be left in large portions to roast as a roast beef or it is cut into steaks and can be grilled. If you ask a butcher for a roast they often ask you how many ribs and want to know where you want the cut – center, top or bottom. That will determine how large the roast is going to be.
