Prime rib has always been one of the most sought after items on the grill. This is because aside from its being quite large enough to fill up anyone, it is more moist, tender and juicy than most other cuts. This cut has been so popular that most restaurants would have it as a specialty, most of the time making a nice steak out of it. More than that, it is also great for an outdoor grill. Outdoor grilling sessions with your family are sure to be much better with some good slices of prime rib.
The common misconception people would have with prime rib is that it is quite difficult to cook and to handle. This however is false; grilling prime rib is just like grilling any other cuts of meat and would just require similar procedures or methods of grilling. Anyone who has grilled other cuts of meat before would be able to make a great prime rib the first time trying it.
Choose The Cut
One of the most common problems for prime rib is that after grilling, a lot of them would get too tough, dry and chewy. This is because the tenderness of a cut would also depend on the meat itself that is why it is important for you to know how to choose the perfect cut. In choosing, pick a cut that has a good marble of fat, not too much but just right. This is because the fat would add tenderness to the meat and would also add a good taste; too much of it however will not make it taste good.
If you could not find this at your favorite shop, then do not hesitate to ask anyone standing by. Prime rib is too basic for a good food store to miss and the people who are standing by are there to help you so never hesitate to ask them. Sometimes, they can even help you choose from a lot of different meats and could offer a lot of different helpful advices that you can really use.
Once your cut of prime rib makes its way home, you can store it at room temperature as long as you will grill it that very same day. The most common mistake people make here is that they would immediately toss it in the refrigerator, thinking that it would spoil immediately. This however is not true. You can put it in the refrigerator however if you plan on using it some other day rather than the day you got the prime rib in.
Make sure that you do not keep the meat in your refrigerator for too long. It would be best if you would consume it within 3 days of having it in the refrigerator. Items stored in the refrigerator would tend to lose flavor and tenderness if kept for too long. You do not want this to happen to your prime rib so dont keep it in the refrigerator for too long.
Preparing Prime Rib
After doing all of that, you are now ready to toss that nice cut of prime rib on the grill. You can first marinate it for at least 20-30 minutes and toss it into the grill after. Take not that grilling prime rib is really quite simple and is just like baking it, grilling however is much better than baking and also tastes far better.
After it is done, you can brush some strokes of barbecue sauce on the surface and there it is, your cut of prime rib is ready to be served and enjoyed by everyone.
