Goodweed,
I think the correct spelling is chateaubriand.

I also thought that Prime Rib is called that because that is the USDA rating. I haven't seen any in my supermarket. I have read somewhere that it is beyond expensive, if you can find it, and that most of it goes to pricey restaurants.

:D You know how in school, they always recomended that you go with your first answer and not change it? Well, the way you spelled Chateaubriand was the way I spelled it, the first time. I talked myself out of it, just like so many of those math test problems.

A couple of posts back in this thread, you will see that I agree with you, that the Prime, in Prime Rib, does refer to the USDA rating. The only way you can get true prime rib is if you know a local butcher who generally has his own herd, and is knowledgeable enough about proper feed, bloodlines, etc. Usually, it is beyond my price range, and certainly cant' be found in supermarkets. You understand correctly.

prime or standing

Actually prime does not refer to the grade of the meat in this case. When you say "prime rib" you are refering to the cut where the meat comes from. The cow is divided into large "primal" cuts and standing rib roasts come from the primal rib, so they are all prime rib. Any grade of meat can be prime rib, it doesn't matter if it's choice, prime, etc....

mjsorkin,

Thanks for clarifying that for me. I thought that it was related to cut, but was unsure of the terms etc. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge with us. And welcome to the boards!

I never heard that before. But I'm willing to look further. Thanks.

K well I ended up buying a Sirloin Tip roast. It was absolutely the best....melt in your mouth. I paid $20.42 for it at IGA. It was 1.585kg....excellent it was. I looked at a standing rib but I have never cooked one, and knowing how my DH "carves, mutilates, ect" meat I chose to go boneless. We nearly ran out, thankfully every one was full by the time the last three peices were there, and well you cant just leave three pieces, so we picked and picked and picked...it was such a good meal.....

Last night we had Ham and scalloped potatoes....mmmmm and we picked and picked and picked.......a weekend full of good food!
