What’s the difference between Prime Rib Roast and Beef Loin New York Roast?

Every year for Christmas dinner I rotisserie a prime rib roast but I see an ad in my local paper for beef loin New York roast. Will this be just as good, only leaner?

It is like the difference between a New York Strip Steak and a Rib Steak. Rib steak is more tender but has more fat.

    prime rib comes from the rib. It’s a more marbled, and flavorful piece of meat than a new york roast, which comes from the loin and tends to be leaner. the loin, produces the tenderest cuts of meat, but not necessarily the most flavorful. I would definitely stick with the prime rib roast.

    Prime Rib has bones in it, thus the ability to add even MORE flavor to the meat.
    Beef Loin is used to slice up thin and make filet mignon.
    Both have different flavors.
    If you buy a large piece of Beef Loin make sure it is prime. Slightly freeze, then you can slice up into filet mignon.
    If you are going to bake it whole, you can use just about any roast recipe. I usually make my own rub out of parsley, garlic POWDER, onion POWDER, paprika, salt and pepper. I lightly rub it on top of the loin roast. (or you can just buy a rub at the store or not use one at all but just season with salt and pepper on the top) then i coat a baking pan with Olive Oil. After the meat is in, I’ll top with some freshly squeezed Lemon and then bake.
    Slice when done into individual slices, and I serve with a heated up version of Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and Parsley.
    Another type of gravy for this that i make is sauteed diced up fresh tomatoes and mushrooms and onions in butter with salt and pepper.
    (baked potato, sour cream, butter and veggies on the side cooked separately)
    If i had a choice tho, I’d go with the Prime Rib (better cut & prime, make sure it’s not STANDING rib roast which is not prime and more tough). It’s pricier, but it’s not like you make it every day.
    Beef Loin is on sale more times during the year than Prime Rib.
