History of National Prime Rib Day

While we can't say for sure where or how it was first cooked, we do know that by the time of the Industrial Revolution it appeared in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Whole rib is considered one of the most classic and delicious cuts of beef, which is made from a beef rib, typically between the 6th and 12th ribs.

In England especially, the prime rib was famous in the late 1800s when families made it the centerpiece of their "Sunday Roast". This popular dinner custom places the original rib in the center of the table, although it is often referred to as "roast rib" due to the fact that it is cooked upright. The Sunday Roast is usually served with mashed potatoes, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding and vegetables. Today, this is still known as a very traditional way of preparing prime rib and is definitely a favorite among meat eaters.

Several restaurants have dedicated their identities to their iconic cuts of meat and are known worldwide for their masterful cooking. For example, the House of Prime Rib in San Francisco incubates their corned beef for three weeks before cooking. Prime rib has been appearing at Peter Luger of New York City since 1887, and Taylor's Steakhouse in Los Angeles is also famous for prime rib. Some national chains, Lawry's Prime Rib, for example, have become the most famous for their culinary artistry with meat cuts!

Chances are you already have prime rib for Christmas or any other holiday, anniversary, or event. Pork chops are famous during holidays and special events, as today it is not cheap and is one of the tastiest and tenders meats. People have always loved to treat themselves to tasty treats - whether it's a Sunday Roast to bring the whole family together, a birthday celebration or a Christmas party!
