Great deal !
That's my Lady Gaga fancy dress costume sorted.
Website says unavailable?
They have this every year in store at half price . Ive never had any problems buying some. Lovey meat
Not available ...
Great spot, available in mine and getting some lamb too.
Do these slow cook well, I'm a big fan of low and slow but have never thought to try a joint like this.
Rib of Beef is my absolute fave. I was a Butcher out of school some 35 years ago and Rib of Beef was always known as the Butchers choice
Yes they slow cook well due to the marbling.

Absolutely . Rib of Beef easily the best roasting beef
Not available for me either, hopefully get them back as had for last couple of years and are really good.
Rib of beef is the Rolls Royce cut.

We have these every Christmas and other special occasions.

Delia's cooking method is the best we've tried. Just remember the ribs will continue to cook the beef whilst out of the oven and resting, so cook it less than you think.
They are only available from tomorrow so you need to set the delivery date to tomorrow or later.

Even doing this they aren't avialable.

Bit expensive at the price.
Bone in as well.
Saintsbury's have boneless at £13 a kilo, Morrisons have bone in for £13 too. This isn't half price is it?

Afraid not. This is as low as you'll get them, other than the odd one of special.

We are friends with a local farmer and we pay about this price from them.

Don't be fooled by other cuts of beef, even with the bones removed, they simply won't compare. Cooking the ribs on the bones is what makes the difference.
Bones normally about 25%.
Roasting beef upside and silver side about 4.95 kilo

If by slow cooking you mean like American style bbq where they cook at 100c for hourse then this is not the meat for that. This is a premium meat and is tender. Generally speaking, you slow cook tough meat to give it time to break down the stuff that makes the meat tough.This kind of meat would do fine with a normal roasting temperature of 160-170 (if not using fan).

I have to disagree I'm afraid and maybe you have never tried a properly cooked one done on a smoker. They cook lovely at 250F and to an internal meat temp of 130-150F depending how well you like them done, you can sear it once it reaches your desired temperature as well, if you want to and the smoke can really add something to the finished meat.

A piece like this would need trimming. I prefer to trim down the large cap of fat I would normally use for roasting (but some people leave it on) and chine it. There are plenty of instructional video's out there if you have never done it before. Or speak to your butcher if not getting this piece and they will trim a Rib joint to your spec for you.But definitely worth doing on a smoker/kamado/pellet grill

If you didn't want to do a rib joint, beef short ribs on a smoker are equally as tasty, but take a bit longer

I would disagree on trimming the joint. I used to trim ours down, chine it then tie it up.

We now leave all the fat on through cooking and then trim it off when serving, definitely adds more flavour.

Rib joint definitely doesn't need slow cooking.

Of course you can slow cook them and I'm sure it will be lovely, but it is not necessary.

A 5-6kg 3/4 rib will cook in under 2hrs in your oven, plus at least a half an hour rest which is crucial, ours quite often rest for an hour before serving.

I've never tried a rib roast from a smoker. Seems odd to me to smoke one because it would it assume it cook too fast, even at low temp, to benefit from the smoke. But I will take your word on that But generally speaking, you slow cook cheap cuts of tough meat because they are inedible otherwise...

Rib roast is cooked to a low internal temp compared on your smoker/grill to say brisket or pork shoulder, so only requires 3 hours max usually even at a low temp. I always cook to an internal temp indoors and outdoors now so go more by that for my meats than actual cooking time though,

As I said plenty of videos out there on cooking this outdoors, this guy is a pretty good BBQ'er for instance Youtube or here Still may not appeal to you, but is a great piece of meat whether you cook it indoors or out imho I personally cook it to 140F internal, 125F is a little to rare for me though.

Short Beef Ribs take longer and cooked at lower temps but once again produces a very flavourful finished piece of meat on the smoker, (prefer them to pork ribs tbh)

Had my online delivery subbed from Bone In to Rib Eye, value wise, at RRP is better, but I love the taste of bone in. Slightly disappointed, but hey ho.

We used to BBQ ours, mainly due to size restrictions in the oven, but I would not do one now on the BBQ.

Cooking on the BBQ requires tending, checking, is weather dependent (wind) and requires topping up the coals.

Cooking in the oven is way easier, quicker, more reliable (especially on the timings of the rest of your dinner) and tastes just as nice, plus everyone has an oven.

But of course, if BBQing is your thing, it is ours too and it gets you out of other Christmas duties, go for it!

Just try again and have both!
How long will these generally keep for refrigerated? Would like it for Xmas but latest delivery date is the 19th. Would rather not freeze and have fresh.

It's not on the butchers counter at this price, it's the wrapped shelf stuff, butchers counter is £14-50, I changed my mind and bought a big sirloin joint at £9 a kilo absolute bargain, it's going to tease me every time I open the fridge till I cook it Christmas Eve :/

It is only available in areas that have the fresh meat counter. I cannot get it because our local doesn’t have it.
