Wagyu Standing Rib Roast

When it comes to serving an impressive meal, whether for a  holiday or a celebration, this Wagyu beef prime rib roast will be there for you.

Little embellishment is needed for this gorgeous rib roast – just salt, pepper, and a very hot oven. Starting the roast at a high temperature will create a beautiful crust which will add tremendous flavor and seal in the juices. Cooked to medium-rare, this Wagyu prime rib is melt-in-your-mouth tender. It should serve 6 to 10 people, depending on whether you get a 3- or 4-rib roast. And how hungry the people are.

Ingredients

Wagyu  beef rib roast, 3 or 4 bone
Kosher salt
Freshly cracked black pepper

Preparation

1. Remove the roast from the refrigerator about 1 hour prior to cooking.

2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

3. Generously season the meat on all sides with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Place roast fat side up in a rack on a shallow pan. Roast for 25 minutes.

4. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue to roast for about 15 minutes per pound, or until an instant read thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 130 – 140 degrees F, for a medium-rare center.

5. Allow the roast to rest on a cutting board for at least 15 minutes before carving. Spoon warm pan drippings over, if desired.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today and everyday we are grateful for you: our clients, friends and supporters. We thank you for having us at your table.

We are most grateful for the farmers and ranchers that work hard so that we can eat wholesome food.

Thank you all for the part you play in making D’Artagnan what we are today.

May your day of Thanksgiving be bright, full of good food, great friends and beloved family.

Favorite Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

This week we are offering 15% off holiday essentials – we think of them as the “little helpers” to ease you through this year’s holiday meal and make it extra-special. Things like black truffle butter, duck fat, demi-glace and bacon. Imported French chestnuts and porcini powder bring earthy flavor and umami to recipes like classic stuffing. Speaking of which, maybe your stuffing needs a little foie gras this year. These cubes of flash-frozen foie gras are quite handy at the holidays.

For further inspiration, here are a few of our favorite things to make for the Thanksgiving meal. Just click on the photo for the recipe.

Save 15% Off Holiday Helpers!

While the holiday bird may take center table (ours truly are stars!), the supporting cast of savory side dishes is just as important. We’re offering some of our favorite ingredients for those dishes at 15% off this week.

Add flavor and texture to your basic stuffing with our mushrooms or chestnuts. And don’t make a holiday feast without black truffle butter – whether under the turkey skin or in mashed potatoes, it lends a rich, earthy flavor that is completely unique.

Enrich your gravy with our duck and veal demi-glace for silky body and great depth of flavor. Green beans are a holiday standard but have you tried them sautéed in duck fat? Sublime.

Take the stress out of Thanksgiving with 15% off these holiday helpers  – but only until Sunday, November 16th at midnight EST.

And if you haven’t pre-ordered your bird, there’s still time. Click through to peruse your options – we’ve got heritage breed, organic or wild turkeys. And for those who plan a small holiday gathering, we offer bone-in turkey breast and free-range capon.

 

Countdown to Thanksgiving

With November we welcome Turkey Season!  No need to panic, we’ve got birds of all sizes and styles: organic, heritage, and wild for your Thanksgiving table.

But pre-order soon, because we will sell out! We have limited numbers of birds because we source from family farms with small flocks.

So head to dartagnan.com and bag yourself a bird. Then turn your attention to all the other details. And we know there are many.

Happy Foieloween!

Or Happy Duckoween, depending on your taste. Whether you like it sweet or savory, we wish you a tasty Halloween.

Pre-order turkey for the holidays NOW!

Yes, folks, it’s that time again. Thoughts turn to glistening, roasted birds and an endless array of side dishes. Guest lists and seating arrangements. New recipes and the tried-and-true family traditions.

But it all centers on the bird. Organic, heritage breed, natural and totally wild turkeys are all options at dartagnan.com. And for those who like white meat, we offer organic and natural turkey breast.

Not a fan of turkey? Other festive fare includes capon and goose.

Because we source from small farms, we  have a limited supply of birds every year. Those in the know order early before we start selling out. So head over to our site and get started. You will feel better once you know that your turkey (or goose) can be crossed off the list.

As Tee from Richmond, VA said of her D’Artagnan organic turkey last year:

“This was the best turkey I have ever cooked or eaten. The breast was very large and the turkey was so juicy! Just oven roasted. Nothing extra special in my preparation of the turkey – it’s just THAT good.”
