People, it’s all about the inside temperature…

Let’s speak about what to deal with any leftovers from this delectable roast now.

The following are some of our favorite ways to eat prime rib roast leftovers: a baguette, thinly sliced prime rib, a little cheese of your choosing, dipped in leftover gravy (or make a fresh batch of au jus with a can of beef stock, seasoned with a little black pepper and garlic powder, and thickened with a tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with a little water). If there are any leftover roasting juices, toss them in as well.)

Prime rib sliders: 1 1/2 cups sour cream, 1/2 cup horseradish, 1/3 cup minced fresh chives, 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice, thinly sliced prime rib

Tacos/Quesadillas: Of course, cutting the leftover prime rib into tiny pieces and tossing it into a wheat or corn tortilla with a little cheese, sour cream, and salsa can’t go wrong!

This Prime Rib Roast is simple to prepare and maintain. To avoid overcooking, use a meat thermometer. This roast is seasoned with fresh thyme, rosemary, oregano, and garlic for a memorable holiday dinner.

Ingredients

  • Prime Rib, 4-6 Pounds (I used boneless)
  • 2 tblsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. fresh rosemary, oregano, and thyme
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • a pinch of salt and pepper

Note

I discovered this simple prime rib roast recipe in Vrai Magazine.

Except that my roast reached the 125°F temperature much sooner than I had anticipated, I followed the instructions exactly and it went off without a hitch.

This is why I strongly advise using a meat thermometer. They aren’t very costly, and you could even borrow one from a buddy.

The seasoning mixture is fantastic. I’d make the roast the centerpiece of the meal, with a baked potato and a green vegetable of my choosing (steamed fresh spinach with salt and butter).

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a small dish, combine the oil, herbs, and garlic to make the seasoning.

Season the roast all over with the spice.

Cook for 15 minutes with the fat side up in a preheated oven.

Reduce the heat to 325°F without opening the oven door and continue to cook the roast until the internal temperature reaches 125°F for rare, 130-135°F for medium rare.

The amount of time it takes to cook your roast will be determined by its size. After my roast had been in the oven for 45 minutes, I began monitoring the temperature.

Remove the roast from the oven after it has achieved your chosen temperature (I went for a beautiful, rare 125°F for mine), and let it rest uncovered for 10-20 minutes before slicing.
