Baron of Beef compared to Prime Rib???

We are planning an awards banquet and went out for price quotes for the catering. One client proposed serving Baron of Beef instead of Prime Rib to save money. I’m not sure that I have ever had this cut, but they told us it compares to Prime Rib. Does anyone have any experience with this cut versus Prime Rib? Would it be a mistake to "downgrade" to baron of beef to save money?

BARON OF BEEF: A descriptive name of bone-in beef round items from IMPS/NAMP 160 to 166B that are generally of large size and used for roasting. Also referred to as Steamship Round.

“PRIME” RIB: Generic description that refers to a bone-in or boneless beef rib roast. As a generic description, it does not refer to the quality grade of the roast.

Pre-Stuffing a Turkey?

Can I stuff my bird tonight? Will it effect the cooking time or quality of the meat or stuffing?
Please, no lectures about the dangers of stuffing a turkey. I’ve heard it all, have always stuffed my turkey and it hasn’t killed me yet.
If it makes a difference to the answer, it’s about 17 lbs and I’m planning to stick it in the oven around 11:00 tomorrow morning.
Thanks for your answers!

no, go for it, we’ve done this for years, be sure to refrigerate it right away till your ready to cook it.use a cooking thermometer in the breast area to be sure its done cooking

How is Quality Meat Defined?

 

Quality Meat Grades

A Quality Meat grade is a composite evaluation of factors that affect palatability of meat (tenderness, juiciness, and flavor). The Quality Meat factors include carcass maturity, firmness, texture, and color of lean, and the amount and distribution of marbling within the lean. Beef carcass Quality Meat grading is based on (1) degree of marbling and (2) degree of maturity.
Marbling

Marbling (intramuscular fat) is the intermingling or dispersion of fat within the lean. Graders evaluate the amount and distribution of marbling in the ribeye muscle at the cut surface after the carcass has been ribbed between the 12th and 13th ribs. Degree of marbling is the primary determination of quality grade.

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.

Steak- What do you Recommend And Why?

Can anyone explain to me the quality, taste, cost etc. of different types of steak? I don’t really know anything about meat quality, but I want to get the highest quality steak (for a reasonable price) for my dad’s birthday. I’m looking at Omaha Steaks and I just realized I have no idea what to look for! What would you recommend and why? Also, what would be the most impressive?

My dad loves to cook and barbecue, but he’s cheap so I’m ordering him expensive marinated meat– so no restaurant recommendations please! :)

I want to know about:

1) Filet Mignon
2) Prime Rib
3) Sirloin
4) T-bone
5) Strip Steak
6) Rib-eye

If he likes his steaks well-done, you may want to stick with the Rib-eye; it has a higher fat content therefore will retain more moisture and flavor. If he is eating his steak at a medium or more rare doneness then I would recommend the Filet Mignon or Porterhouse (most expensive, readily available cuts). I personally think Porterhouse has more flavor and a good combination of meat with the bone-in and you get a piece of Filet Mignon on one side of the bone and a Strip Steak on the other side of the bone ( I save the super tender Filet side to eat last). So obviously, a more economical but still yummy steak is a Strip Steak. Rib-eye, T-bone and Sirloin are OK and just a note on Prime Rib; cooking time would be a good bit longer (larger cut of meat) and is generally served with a very pink center (rare to med rare) if that is a concern for his meat-eating preferences
