What does the "standing" mean in "standing ri

I have to ask this very novice cooking questions. When a recipe calls for a "standing" rib roast, what does the "standing" mean? Is that a certain cut (ie, shoulder, ect)

I think... it means that it still has bones. But, I've been known to be wrong.

Interesting question!

Maybe because you "stand" it on its ribs (ie fat side up) to roast it?

C'mon Bang and MiFW, answer this?!

Yes to the standing it on the ribs.

Yep, Alix!

The standing rib roast has the ribs still on it so that you can "stand" it on your roasting pan without a rack. Plus the bones add a bit more flavor, too. Comes from the same area and contains the same meat as a tenderloin, as I recall.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is Optional.
