Perfect Prime Rib
At your local market, picking a well-marbled rib is not that hard, most cuts of prime rib are well-marbled and if seasoned and prepared properly they will turn out delicious.    We always ask our butcher to cut the bone off the rib roast and then tie it back on.  This way we get all the flavor of the bone-in rib roast but it makes carving so simple.
