Hi,

Could anyone point me to an illustrated tutorial on removing the chine bone from a rib roast?

I've searched and haven't found.

Your help will be truly appreciated :)

Thanks in advance!

do you want a standing rib roast or a boneless? boneless is a no muss no fuss filet it off the bone. for a standing rib roast, you need a super sharp knife to cut through the rib bone and cartiledge connected to the back bone. i scalp the meat off slightly around it and use a cleaver to remove the back bone...

good luck...

Andrew,

No video but, you can use a hack saw with a bone blade ($1.50) and cut through the chine where it meets the ribs. You can use a knife to remove the chine. You may also want to cut between the ribs if there is any remaining bones.

You can take your roast into a butcher and ask where you should make your cuts. It is best to do the removal at home. Butchers use large band saws and they tend to hack up and ruin what should be a nice roast.

There is a website, Beef Myology which has videos of breaking down a carcass. Unfortunately, they do not do finish trimming.

Andrew,

Click on the Fabrication Videos. These include a Loin Split in which you can see the chine bone. These videos do not include a chine removal.
