3 Places to Celebrate National Prime Rib Day

BY Gabriela Reyes


The second most tender cut of beef comes from the meat off the rib primal, located behind the shoulder, where it carries rich flavoring attributed to the significant level of marbling. While its anatomical placement is accredited to its name, it may also be a USDA-certified “prime” cut at establishments purchasing high-quality meats. Prime Rib is typically roasted slowly at a low temperature, allowing the meat to cook evenly and retain moisture, creating a caramelized, crusty exterior and a pink, juicy medium rare interior that will surely please any meat lover. 

You may have heard of Prime Rib specials because they are only sometimes served seven days a week unless you visit a steakhouse. But, we have found three restaurants that offer a place for you to celebrate National Prime Rib Day every day. Suppose you are excited about today’s beef-centric holiday. In that case, we encourage you to attend RARE, the Denver Steak Championship, on Thursday, May 25, 2023, for the annual battle among 24 of the best steak-serving restaurants in the Front Range. Until then, grab your dining partners and head to one of these Prime Rib serving spots.
