Are rib-eye steaks and prime rib the exact same beef, but simply cut, cooked, and served differently?

I wanted to make prime-rib at home for one or two people, but did not want to make a whole prime rib. It’s just too much food and I don’t want it to be leftover. Someone told me I could get a really big rib-eye steak and bake it at 400 for 20 minutes, then lower the heat to 200 until the meat was 120 F inside, and it would be pink and perfect just like a prime rib and that it was the same meat.

I have a hard time believing this but I don’t actually have any idea if it’s true or not.

Can anyone confirm or deny this for me?

thanks

Wow. Talk about fast response. Yahoo won’t let me pick an answer yet, and I’ll probably have to flip a coin w/ all these good ones, but I’m looking forward to french dip sandwiches, prime rib at home w/ horseradish and au jus, and also, hitting it with some cold mesquite smoke (far end of the smoker – small fire) for a touch of outdoor flavor. This is going to be wonderful. I love prime rib but didn’t know it was feasible to make a small amount at home for a reasonable price.

Ribeye and Prime Rib are from the same cut of meat… if you are wanting to do a small prime rib (boneless) then just ask butcher at most grocery stores to cut you a 2-3 lb boneless Prime Rib. Most will do it no problem,and they will usually tie up the roast as to not get mis shaped. Ribeye, although from the same loin, is usually cut from the fat cap end, meaning it is more marbled than what you may fine in a prime rib. That or just do a whole prime rib, use the left overs, for beef stew, stroganoff, endless options there:) Good luck,

How do I cook Cajun fajitas at home?

I need a starting point for a recipe that I can cook at home, but ideally is mall food-court quality at worst or restaurant quality at best. I would try a Cajun recipe first and a Tex Mex recipe, as well. How long does a New York steak bake in an oven at 350 degrees? My problem is that I want to flour-coat the meat. I am looking for any good solutions.

Fajita meat is not flour coated. It’s going in a flour tortilla already.

Sizzling Fajitas

1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Dash hot sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 pounds meat (boneless, skinless chicken breast, skirt steak or peeled and deveined shrimp)
1 medium onion, halved and sliced lengthwise
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 lime, juiced, for topping
Sour cream, for topping
Salsa, for topping
Guacamole, for topping
Cheddar cheese, shredded, for topping

In a heavy duty resealable plastic bag, combine 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, hot sauce, salt, pepper and your choice of meat. Seal and toss the bag around to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator. *Cook’s Note: 15 minutes for shrimp, 20 minutes for chicken and 1 hour for skirt steak.
Preheat your cast iron servers in a preheated 400 degree F oven for at least 20 minutes, to get a good sizzle when you plate the fajitas.
Heat the outside grill or a large indoor grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the meat from the marinade and place it on the hot grill, discard the marinade. Cook chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side, skirt steak about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare and about 2 minutes for shrimp. Slice the chicken and steak into strips if you are using.
In a large skillet heat up the remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and fry the onions and bell peppers until crisp-tender with some salt and pepper.
Wrap the tortillas in foil and warm them in the oven with the servers for 15 minutes.

When you are ready to serve, remove the cast iron servers from the oven and quickly arrange the meat and peppers and onions on it. It will immediately start to sizzle from their fat and moisture. Serve sizzling immediately with the warm tortillas and other accompaniments.

Zesty Chicken Enchilada Spaghetti

 

 

Ingredients:

Half a pound of spaghetti
One Tbsp of olive oil
Half of a chopped onion
A quarter teaspoon of salt
A quarter teaspoon of pepper
Two minced cloves of garlic
One teaspoon of cumin
A half teaspoon of chili powder
A half teaspoon smoked paprika
Just a pinch of  some cayenne pepper
Two good sized cooked and shredded boneless and skinless chicken breasts
One ten ounce can red enchilada sauce
Three quarter cup of grated sharp cheddar
Some fresh cilantro

 

 

Directions:

First start cooking your pasta a large pot according to package directions. When it is cooked drain the pasta and set it aside.

After getting the pasta started add some oil to a large skillet set it over a medium heat. Then add your onion, salt and pepper and let the onions sweat, stirring occasionally, until they have softened. Should only take about five minutes. Now stir in the garlic, paprika, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne. Cook it for only a minute or so, making sure to stir constantly. You’ll want to cook it just enough until you can smell the garlic and your spices are nice and toasted.  Then add the enchilada sauce and chicken, mix it in well. Reduce your heat to low, then add the pasta to your skillet. Use some tongs to toss until pasta is coated with the sauce. Take your pan off of the heat and add some of the sharp cheddar and continue to toss until it is melted and mixed well. Garnish with cilantro before serving, if desired.

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

real meat versus canned food?

I have two 9-week-old kittens. They are currently on wet food about 5 times a day. They have dry food out all the time that they nibble on. Water is provided which they are drinking.

They are currently being weaned off Whiskas and Felix wet food (which they were fed in foster care) and onto a higher quality wet food. I am mixing some Pets at Home (UK) "Purely" food which seems better quality. It has 50% real chicken, sunflower oil, vitamin and mineral supplements and tapioca starch. That’s the list of ingredients. It seems better than other brands. There doesn’t seem to be any byproducts or ash or corn fillers.

The kittens don’t seem to enjoy this food that much (both higher and lower quality food), but they will pick at it. A couple of times I have given them some salmon steaks and frying steak (both cooked) which I’ve chopped up. They love this and lick the plate clean!

My question is, is it wrong/safe/unhealthy to feed them exclusively real meat (beef, pork, tuna etc) as opposed to high quality canned food? I know that canned food has all the vitamins and minerals, etc that a cat needs, but is real meat actually better for them since they are carnivores? I am a little worried about them having too much protein in their diet as I know this can cause kidney problems. Also, because they are so young, is real meat appropriate? I would not feed them processed meats (ham, deli meat etc). I know that canned food contains water, but they are drinking pretty well too.

I want to give my kittens a good start in life and feed them the best.
Thanks for the answers I’ve been getting. So, what about if I give them a combination of real and canned food, all mixed in together. The real meat might make the canned stuff taste better. But then again, they might just pick out the real stuff and leave the canned stuff!

A raw diet is the best thing you could possibly feed them. They are obligate carnivores and designed to digest high protein foods, so you needn’t worry about kidney problems. Meat contains water just like canned food does.

Making a nutritionally complete homemade diet isn’t easy. Research:

http://www.catnutrition.org/foodmaking.php (Foodmaking)
http://www.littlebigcat.com/index.php?action=library&act=show&item=014 (Easy Homemade Diets for Cats and Dogs)

Raw feeding is an excellent option but should also be thoroughly researched before being attempted. There’s a lot more to it than just feeding your cat raw meat. You need a careful balance of raw muscle meat, raw organ meat, and raw meaty bones. Research:

Beside Prime Rib what is the 2nd best beef roast to cook?


Beef Tenderloin is better than prime rib. If you know what your doing it is absolutely not even a contest. I don’t mean to seem snotty but I would not use tender for a roast only because it is much better served as filet mignon approx 6-8 ounces each mmmmm. Since a Prime rib has the bone in and a rib-eye roast doesn’t, those would be my #1 and #2

Best way to do a steak on the BBQ?

I am a ummmmmmmmmm bad cook (to put it mildly! LOL). Just bought a BBQ and going to get a good steak tonight. Cant do a quality cut (working class so no prime rib lol) So any suggestions regarding cut of steak,cooking times,spicing, and maybe a lite marinade (Dont like a strong on as it takes away the flavour of the meat so teriaki is out). Like my steak medium rare.
Yes I will put up the 10 points!
Thanks in advance!

Ok KING of the Barbies Here From Australia. Put the spices/ even little garlic crushed / maybe a little soy sause as it helps with the browning.and leave the steak at room temp for at least 30 to 40 mins ( hope it a little warm there) Then get ya Barbie up hot just before it starts to smoke.. Wack some olive oil on the steak and get that mother on the barbie. and only turn it three time. It medium only after a 4 to 5 mins
( takes practice). Then let it sit for a min after cooking so ya don’t lose the juices… On ya MATE!!
