Default Which cut & what to do? Rib roast, london broil or chuck roast?

I don't buy a lot of meat because it is so expensive but tomorrow on (3/4) a local grocer is having a meat sale.

These are each under $3.00 a lb.

So which cuts do you like?
And if you don't mind sharring, what are your favorite easy dishes with that cut?

Thanks!

Brown a chuck roast, place in Dutch oven or crock pot, add onions, carrots & potatoes, cook low for 8 hours. Yummy! Take the leftovers and make soup.

London Broil with a nice rub on it - 7 or 8 minutes per side on the grill. YUM

I love London Broil cooked on the grill (usually marinated in teriyaki sauce) or make slits and place slivers of fresh garlic in them. I also add fresh-ground pepper and use a baster to put seasoned beef broth (garlic powder and black pepper) over it every 15-20 minutes. That's important because I like my meat medium-well to well done but not dry.

Garlic and black pepper are our favorite seasonings and we use broths for marinades often.






Why am I hungry? LOL!

Chuck roast is great for soup and stew. I never buy the precubed beef for any stew or beef soups. I just buy chuck roast and cube it myself. It's cheaper. It's really good too!

Chuck roast has the best flavor. I brown mine on the stove with onions and garlic then add some water, cook it slow, and add potatoes and carrots. Then the next night, my favorite stew and dumplings. I wish I had some right now.

Oh rib roast is my favorite though I love them all in different ways...and $3.00 a poundis unheard of
A rib roast is Prime Rib. I cook it but putting some garlic cloves into it in little slits, then I smear dijon mustard all over it and completely cover it in rock salt of kosher salt, I mean mound it on it like a coccoon...then when it's to the temp you desire the salt is hardened all over it and the meat is so juicy its unbeleivable and not salty tasting.

London Broil I love marinate in italian dressing and cooked slowly on the grill.

A chuck roast is usually pretty fatty but perfect for pot roast with carrots adn potatoes...yum! In the crock pot or for the easist prep get the McCormicks Bag n Season and just put it in the bag and cook it

I am so jealou sof $3.00 meat of any kind!

I know, the price was crazy! I went back and got 6 more rib roast because they looked less fatty. So with this recipe, do you cook it in the oven? At what temp? I can't wait to try this. Maybe tomorrow! Does it taste mustardy? The guys don't like mustard. - party poopers

I do the same, except I put the meat under the broiler.

You dont have to use the mustard, but most of it is stuck to the salt shell when its done cooking and isnt super mustardy. And it helps the salt stick to the meat.

How I cook it is at 450 for the first 30 minutes, then I turn the oven down to 325 and cook until the temperature inside is:

Rare 120 - 125
Medium-rare 130 - 135
Medium 140 - 145
I wouldnt suggest going over this....
Medium-well 150 - 155
Well done 160 and above

and remember it will cook a little when it comes out and is resting.

Its best to use a meat thermometer to keep track so it isnt over cooked. The center will be more rare than the ends. I think its like 12-14 minutes per pound...but the thermometer is the best way to tell.

I always make a dip for the meat of horseradish, sour cream and dill...omg it is so good. And some au jus sauce for it too. I just buy the packs of au jus that you mix with water.

My mouth is watering...wonder if dh will take me somewhere that has good prime rib tonight!!

Since we're talking about good deals on meat, I got porterhouse steaks on sale for $4.88/lb today. You can't get deli turkey breast that cheap! We'll grill them tomorrow night for dinner since it got up to 75 degrees today and is supposed to be a nice day tomorrow.

We'll prepare them according to a Weber's grill cookbook recipe. That's really a great resource when grilling meat!

Here's the link to a really great cookbook!

I'd go for the rib roast and if you don't mind, please buy extra for me and send it over...$3 a pound?? I think it's $12/lb and up at the grocery store here!
