Easter Dinner = Prime Rib

For Easter dinner we decided to make prime rib (aka, a standing rib roast). This cut of beef is from the rib section of the cow, and happens to be one of the eight primal cuts of beef. The entire rib section come from ribs six through twelve and a typical standing rib roast can be anywhere from two to seven ribs. The one we ordered was a three rib roast and then we had the ribs removed (boneless rib roast). As you will see, we had the butcher season the prime rib with vegetable seasoning which was comprised of a variety of aromatic vegetables. This Prime Rib was way better than anything I’ve ordered at a steakhouse and cost a whole lot less. Prime Rib is currently sold at 10.99 a pound at most butcher shops. A short video of the cooking process is posted below. Thanks for watching!

Kansas City Strip Steaks

Did you know that the strip steak is called a club steak in many countries? In the United States and Canada it is known as strip loin, shell steak, Kansas City strip or New York strip steak. I guess my butcher decided to call it Kansas City strip steak today – next week it will be the New York. Anyways, this cut of beef is from the short loin, and consists of a muscle that does little work, and so it is REALLY tender.
I just added a little steak seasoning and grilled them on the cast iron grill grate – which made some incredible sear marks. They were GOOD!!!! Check out the short video below.

Breaking in the new Cast Iron Grill Grate from Craycort

I decided to break in the new cast iron grill grate from Craycort with a couple of Cajun Burgers and some Spicy Chicken Sausage. Everything turned out amazing and I couldn’t be happier with this new grill grate. Its funny how a small change in the cooking surface makes a huge impact on the flavor profile of your food.
