Frequently Asked Questions: Prime Rib

We’ve partnered with a family-owned butcher in Cle Elum called Owens Meats to bring you a fresh, boneless prime rib right to your doorstep - just in time for the holidays!

We answer the most common questions about our prime rib.

When do I get it delivered?

You'll receive the prime rib on your regular delivery day the week before Christmas. 

  • Monday, December 17
  • Tuesday, December 18
  • Wednesday, December 19
  • Thursday, December 20
  • Friday, December 21

Is it fresh or frozen?

It is a fresh, never frozen, prime rib.

How long will it stay good in my refrigerator?

As long as the vacuum pack stays sealed, it will last seven days in the refrigerator. If you want to keep it longer than that, we recommend freezing it.

How is it delivered to me? Will it fit in my porch box? 

Your prime rib is vacuum packed, and then will be placed in a custom wooden box to keep it secure. The box will be delivered in an insulated bag with an ice pack to keep it cold. Your milkman will place it on top of or near your porch box. 

How is it packaged?

The prime rib comes vacuum packed and pre-trussed, which holds it together nicely when cooking. 

Where is the meat sourced from? 

The prime rib is packaged by Owens Meats, a family-owned company in Cle Elum. It is choice beef that's been raised in Washington.

What sizes are available?

Choose from either eight or ten pounds.

How many will it feed?

We recommend 12 to 16 ounces per person.

Is it already seasoned?

No, but we will include a seasoning packet in the box for you.

How long does it take to cook?

It will typically take a few hours. Use a meat thermometer to ensure proper cooking temperature. For rare you should remove it from the oven when the internal temp reaches about 120 degrees, for medium rare, temp should be 128-132 degrees.
