Try It: The Broiler’s Prime Rib of Beef


It’s tough to find a good piece of prime rib, but I was pleased recently to make the acquaintance of a rich, fork-tender slab of this ethereal cut of beef at The Broiler in downtown Sacramento. Served up simply with a crusty baked potato and a tidy pile of green beans and broccoli, the meal was bathed in a meaty, fragrant au jus – a delectable dunking liquid for the restaurant’s warm bread. Other noteworthy items that evening included a blue cheese-drenched wedge salad, speckled with bits of bacon and accompanied by ripe, juicy tomato slices; and a marvelous, very flavorful wild mushroom soup.
