This rack is 8 ribs long as one piece after the removal of the 5 rib chuck at the neck end of loin and the short loin at the rump end of the loin. The brisket attached to the rack is usually removed 75mm from the eye muscle of the rack, leaving rib bones that can be frencaed if required.
The rack is simply the scotch fillet with the rib bones attached. Cut from half of the primal rib, the bones are trimmed either into a row of ribs, or curved and tied to resemble a crown. Roasting on the bone amplifies the flavour while rendering the meat tender and succulent.Cook this cut
Rib cutlets are prepared by taking a standing rib roast and slicing it into steaks. With the bone, it’s a rib cutlet, and if you remove the bone from the steak it becomes a scotch fillet. Like a scotch fillet, rib cutlets are taken from an area of the animal that hasn’t done the heavy work resulting in a tender cut.Cook this cut
