Prime rib or beef rib roast are the colloquial names for the steak known as the standing rib roast. Its name derives from the most common way of cooking the meat — standing rib roast is generally roasted in a standing position with the ribs stacked vertically and the layer of fat at the top, which flavors the meat all the way through. It is cut from the primal rib and is one of the eight primal cuts of beef. Standing rib roasts yield rib steaks which have the bone and excess fat removed.
Prime rib is traditionally prepared by rubbing the outside of the roast with a mixture of seasonings, then roasting it under dry heat for 2-3 hours, depending on the size. It can also be grilled, smoked, or cooked on a rotisserie, but these options are less common. The results are a tender and delicious cut of meat. There is no specific way to serve prime rib — the English serve it with Yorkshire pudding, the French serve it au jus, and in the United States it is most often served with horseradish.
