Joint identity

Hi,
I am trying to identify this joint ( bundled in a package from my meat supplier). Also how this would normally be prepared/cooked. Thanks

Looks like a rib cut from near the shoulder or hip.

It looks like a rib cut with the full cap attached. Just a heads up, that cap will typically not be as tender as the rest of the cut when cooked medium rare as a rib steak/roast should be cooked.

I agree it looks like a shoulder chop. I think they are tough unless braised.

Not if it's a beef rib steak it shouldn't be tough, except for that top strip. Trim that and Muzzzy should have a nice rib steak (or a small rib roast).

Agreed, shoulder chop, towrds the rib end.

Is it beef or lamb? It's so red it looks a bit like lamb.

I assumed it was beef, since it's in the beef forum.

My first thought was a different kind of joint.
In that case say thank you and have a nice day!
