Take the beef rib primal cut, slow roast it on the bone, then slice it to order in succulent portions, and you’ve got the makings of a mighty fine meal. Add on all sorts of toppings from rich sauces to mounds of seafood, and bring on sides like classic Yorkshire pudding or fresh veggies, and you’ve got a prime meal.
