Prime rib: the crème de la crème of beef cuts. Prime rib gets its name from the USDA, which ranks the palatability of a cut of meat according to factors such as the maturity of the steer, texture, firmness, color of the lean and the marbling within the lean. This determines the cuts juiciness, flavor, tenderness, etc., which gives consumers a system by which to identify greater or lesser cuts of meat from each other.
But, why all this talk about prime rib, you ask? Well, it’s National Prime Rib Day today, ya dingus! Below, we’ve compiled a list of Detroit area steak and chop houses worth checking out.
