Herb-roasted Wing Rib

Esquire's resident chef Mark Hix delivers up another classic for your repertoire. 

The wing rib is basically the bit that sits between the sirloin and the fore rib. A good butcher will be able to get his hands on a wing rib with two bones that should be enough for 4–6 servings. This cut of beef doesn’t have as much fat surrounding the eye of meat as the fore rib, so it’s perfect for a cold roast joint.
