Enduring Classic Recipe #5
Prime Rib & Leftovers Recipes
The unique concept and money saving key to enduring classic recipes is not to just think about one meal but multiple meals that can use the same meat to spread the cost over several days instead of one expenditure.
One of the best experiences I had on active duty was serving as the Dinning Facility Officer (DFO) for Headquarters and Service Battalion, 3rd Force Service Support Group. I was the S-4 Officer and this came with several challenges. I was in charge of two dining facilities feeding 4000 Marines on a daily basis for two years. This would be the third assignment of this type during my career. My first assignment as a DFO was at Camp Fuji while serving with Range Company in 1980-81. I had to learn the ends and outs of the MCO system and that began by reading all of the service regulations. I discovered how to maximize the proper use of meals and that includes using leftovers for enduring meals and not simply throw away things days after. For instance using left over ground beef hamburgers for SOS in the morning with eggs to order. Also, the use of a salad bar to really bring the cost to feed down that enabled my Marines to always have real classic meals and not the imitation stuff.
Enduring Classic Recipes provides ways to enjoy quality meals but save money at the same time.
Prime Rib or Rib Roast is not cheap and if you have a family trying to make ends meet financially then one needs to plan meals and make them spread out. I may spend 35-40 dollars for a 5-7 rib of standing roast but way after the relatives are gone I still have leftover meat and I cutup the remaining meat including the bones and make other meals that will feed the family for at least a week. After three days I place the rest in a storage bag for use during the next few months. My lunches come from these storage bags in the freezer. The flavors when placed in a microwave drive my co-workers crazy. But this secret makes those leftover meals simply the most enjoyable and delicious recipes to always remember. You will never forget the taste and your friends or family will always ask you to make these year after year. So be careful who you share these enduring recipes with in the future. Recipes are forth coming in Enduring Classic Recipes.
Secret #1 - Insert 9 one inch slices in the standing roast while marinating with a dry rub prior to roasting. Insert garlic cloves into the slits and squeeze close to infuse the garlic flavor throughout the roast.
