I'm thinking DH bought way too much, but I am not sure how to cut it to make the amount smaller. I was reading online and it says one end is less tender, but I don't know how to figure that out.

Any ideas

Cook the whole thing and enjoy the leftovers. Roast beef sandwiches, anyone?

I would also cook the whole thing and enjoy the leftovers.

To me that's one of the best things about holiday meals... getting a day or two off coooking after all the work / hassle / stress / excitement of the big day.

We always buy our roasts a little on the bigger side just so we can have leftovers. They are the best! Enjoy!

Beef fried rice with the leftovers. That's what we do every year.

I cooked 2 roasts that were 18 lbs each, and we barely have enough for leftovers. DH and I will each get one more slice tonight...sure wish there was more!

18 lb prime rib roasts? Damn, that's huge.
We cooked 2 that were 9 lbs each. We ended up with a whole one left over. I'm not sure why it wasn't devoured, but happy to have leftovers.
