Red Wine Top of Rib

Using only seven ingredients, our Red Wine Top of the Rib recipe is easy to make and fall-apart delicious! The trick to tenderized meat is to slice it against the grain after the initial cooking process and put it back in the over for a final roast. We highly recommend that you use a red wine that can be enjoyed when your rib is complete; try a full flavored wine such as a Merlot or Shiraz. This will add additional flavor to the dish and will help tenderize your meat.

We used Grow & Behold'sTop of Rib. This cut of meat can be compared to a brisket in terms of its cooking method and texture. The difference is that the top of rib is smaller and more tender. What makes Grow & Behold meats so different is the way they raise their animals. The cattle are raised in an environmentally safe and managed pasture. The majority of the animals' diet is grass-based. These animals are raised by the dozens, not by the thousands. Additionally, all cattle are humanely slaughtered and Glatt Kosher,

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees
2. Lay on a flat surface the top of rib. Generously coat each side with garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.

10. Remove meat from the and slice against the grain. Here's a great article on How to Slice Meat Against the Grain.
