How to cook Rib Roast
Years ago, Hobe Meats Butcher Shoppe taught my parents how to cook rib roasts.
\"In the morning, bring the roast to room temp...heat the oven to 500 degrees, cook the roast for one hour at 500, turn the oven off, and let the roast sit in the oven all day long\" he explained.
A couple weeks ago, while watching Food Network, I saw one of the chefs offer up the exact recipe, implicitly stating it was the latest greatest cooking technique.
Old man Hobe had it right years ago, and for that, I\'ll forever sing his praises.
The shop was sold many years ago, and has since changed hands a couple times, but little has changed.
Maybe it\'s not feasible to shop here all the time due to it\'s proximity to you, but it\'s definitely worth your while to experience this butcher shop every once in a while.

One of the few remaining pieces of Americana and it\'s right here in Phoenix.
Great Saturday BBQ!!
Great Saturday BBQ deal! ~~ That was my tip. Now for a review. Hobe Meats is a butcher shop. They know what they sell,have tips on how to cook it and care about what they sell. No slacker customer service here. You need a butcher shop you can rely on, one that sells quality meat, that cares about what they do. This is it.
Back to the Saturday BBQ deal (which they mention on their website). There may be some choices that would normally pop out at you for your preference, but try the pork chop. Just outstanding. Here\'s another hint: The food comes with a side in a styrofoam container. If you get the french fries and take it home (otherwise they have two wood picnic tables in front of the store), put the french fries in a toaster oven for a few minutes when you get home to draw out the moisture they\'\'ll take in from the moist pork chop.
Here\'s a great illustration of the service: My mother-in-law has to watch her sodium intake closely. When I asked Lindsay if they could leave the seasoning off of the pork chop (Saturday BBQ special), not only did she say, \"Sure\", she asked if we wanted her side of french fries salt free! ~ That was one happy mother-in-law, which meant everyone else was happy.
Grilling Burgers WOW!!
Last night we grilled some burger from Hobe Meats on the grille. I was SO impressed! It tasted every bit as good as a Kobe burger from AJs which costs $7.99/lb. vs. Hobe price of $4.99 or cheaper if you have a coupon.
I also had their bacon. It's thicker and doesn't shrink. The grocery store sells12 oz. packages instead of the usual 16 oz package for the same money.
I am fortunate to live only 2 miles from Hobe Meats Butcher shop.
Wow, my childhood beckons...
It's been a long time since I've been to a genuine meat market, and I'm so glad I made the visit to Hobe Meats.
I purchased a living social deal for Hobe, and bought just shy of $98 worth of prime beef for $47, plus my certificate.
We froze some of it, and ate some last night...delish! Let me tell you, Folks, it's a treat that is worth the price for prime beef!
The cost of the filets (don't forget, this is Prime grade, not choice) was less than what is charged at AJ's, and the flavor is unbelievable!
The gentleman that helped us was totally knowledgeable about meat, and the meat business, as well.
In addition to the Prime Beef selection, this meat market has lamb, pork and fish. They have a large selection of Choice beef, too!
