Prime Rib, or a Standing Rib Roast is taken from one of the eight primal cuts off an Ungulate or hoofed animal, and is usually composed of the choicest cut, ribs 6-12. It is delicious. Especially with horseradish. However, the analogous cuts on a human are too small even for an appetizer. I would have despaired of not having my favorite protein, if not for the fact that it was a 2 pound plate, and I felt it was more than sufficient to sate my lust for rare flesh.
