My husband and son asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day this year, and besides spending the entire day with them and just enjoying their company, I said I wanted crab legs on the grill. So off to the store they went. I could hardly wait to savor that scrumptious crab meat drenched in butter. Well the number one question they asked and everyone asks is “how much should I buy?”  What a great question!  When purchasing crab legs, I usually plan on 1 pound per person because you are normally eating other items with it. Ah! Yes, we also had rib-eye on the grill along with the crab legs, and yes they really do spoil me.

How to Prepare and Crack Crab Legs like a Pro! - www.cobornsblog.com

Don’t be intimated… it’s Easy!

So many people are intimated by cooking crab legs and I’m sure they don’t realize how easy they are to cook. I know years ago I was totally intimidated by them and wouldn’t purchase them because I had no idea how to cook them. Well times are changing, and I stepped out of that box and said enough is enough. So I found out how to make them and there was no looking back.  Now they are such a treat and they are so easy to make. There are several ways of cooking crab legs and I will just explain a couple ways of doing them.

How to Prepare Crab Legs

Our Crab legs are fully cooked so all you have to do is warm them up. Here are some quick instructions for you to follow.

  • In a large pot (Use strainer insert for added convenience), bring 3-4 cups water to boil. (Water amount may vary).
  • Rinse ice from frozen crab legs, and place in the pot. Cover
  • Boil crab legs 4 to 6 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Serve crab legs with melted butter for dipping.

Crab Leg Tips

  • If you don’t have a lot of time I just throw the crab legs on the grill for about 10-15 minutes (make sure not to burn the shell of the legs or the meat will dry out) and they turn out perfect.
  • To remove meat from shell, first pull the membrane out between the joint of the leg, slowly. Then break the leg in half. Once you do this the meat slides out perfectly. Watch the video below to see this technique in action.
  • If you love fresh cilantro or basil, just chop some up and sprinkle them into your melted butter for some wonderful flavor.

How to Crack Crab Legs


Now you know how easy it is to do, so go outside that box and run out to your nearest Meat & Seafood Department and try them tonight.  Enjoy…..I always do!

National Prime Rib Day

On Monday, April 27th it is National Prime Rib Day and this is a perfect day for me to have an excuse to prepare Prime Rib. On second thought I don’t ever have to have an excuse to make Prime Rib because every day is a perfect day to prepare Prime Rib.

It used to be the only time you prepared Prime Rib was on a major holiday and for a large group of family or friends because you had to purchase the entire roast.  Well things have changed because now you can purchase individual slices of Pre-cooked Prime Rib steaks right out of Coborn’s Full Service Meat Case and because it is pre-cooked all you have to do is warm it up.  This couldn’t get any easier.

National Prime Rib Day - www.cobornsblog.comTo prepare the Certified Hereford Beef Pre-cooked Prime Rib Steaks, grill the meat by first using cooking spray on the grates before turning on the grill and then pre-heat the grill.  Then place the Pre-cooked Prime Rib on the grates and then grill until heated through. If you decide to heat it in the oven make sure your oven is pre-heated to 350 degrees. Then place the steaks in a glass dish and add just a little Au jus to cover the bottom. Bake until heated through, approximately 10 minutes.

Now if you decide you want to prepare a full raw roast instead of individual steaks here are some tips to help you when purchasing and preparing a full Raw Certified Hereford Prime Rib Roast.

You’ll Need:

  • One Raw Certified Hereford Beef Prime Rib Roast, 3 to 7 ribs
    (estimate serving 2 people per rib)
  • Four Brothers Prime Rib Seasoning

Remove the beef roast from the refrigerator for about 1-1/2 hours before you start to cook it. Sprinkle with Prime Rib Seasoning all over it and let stand, loosely wrapped in the butcher paper. Roasts should be brought close to room temperature before they go into the oven, to ensure more even cooking.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place the roast fat side up and rib bones down in a roasting pan. After browning the roast at 450 degrees in the oven for 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees. To figure out the total cooking time, allow 15-17 minutes per pound for medium rare which is 145 degrees. Check temperature of the roast using a meat thermometer 30 to 40 minutes before you expect the roast to be done. Once the roast has reached a temperature you want, remove it from the oven and place it on a carving board. Cover it with foil and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving. The internal temperature of the roast will continue to rise while the roast is resting. Cut away strings that were used to hold the roast to the rack of rib bones. Using a sharp carving knife, slice meat across the grain for serving, making the slices about ¼ to ½ inch thick.

Don’t forget to serve your Prime Rib with Au jus for an even beefier flavor and if your daring serve with horseradish.  Enjoy….I always do!
