Mike's EZ Prime Rib instructions
- Bring roast to room temperature for at least 2 hours prior to cooking..
- Rinse roast and daub dry. Place on a metal rack in a roasting pan – fat side up. Leave binding strings in tact..
- Mix all dry seasonings together in a bowl. Place minced garlic and oil in a separate bowl..
- ● Rinse your roast and pat it completely dry with absorbent paper towels. ● Coat your roast in your oil and garlic mixture. Use all. ● Then, pat on your dry seasonings all the way around. ● Know that no salt is needed in your rub since your Au Jus with beef broth will lend all the sodium you'll want..
- ● Do not cover roast and cook on a lifted oven rack at 400° for the first 15 minutes. Then, reduce heat to 325° and time for 20 minutes per total pound. ● This will give you a nice medium rare center and well done ends. ● Cut time by 3 minutes per pound if you want a very rare center like I do. ● An ultimate internal temp of 120° stuck in your thickest roast part makes for a perfect rare prime rib in my opinion..
- ● Pull roast from oven and let it rest for 5 + covered for minutes before slicing. This will help its fluids to rise to the surface. ● Cut binding strings. ● Slice in between bones and serve as 1 lb slabs per guest. ● Serve with piping hot Au Jus and chilled Horseradish Sauce..
- Make your Au Jus but substitute the water called for with beef broth for a more pronounced beef flavor..
- ● Upon serving, I'll lay the 1 lb slab on a guests serving plate alone. Then, I'll ladle piping hot Au Jus around the meat. I'll then garnish individual slabs with fresh parsley. ● Any other sides – I'll serve in seperate bowls or on side plates. [i.e., stacked baked potatoes, fresh asparagus, creamed spinach with bread, garlic risotto, or, simple wedge salads] ● You can also serve this as an impressive Surf & Turf dish. Just add steamed seafood of your choosing to the side. I'll commonly add King Crab Legs, Jumbo Shrimp or, Jumbo Scallops..
- ● Steam de-thawed crab legs for 5 to 8 minutes in a slight amount of water, lemon juice, pepper corns, a bay leaf and crushed garlic cloves to taste. ● Serve legs with melted or clarified butter and lemon wedges..
- ● Another great side is baked potatoes. ● See my recipe for Mike's Perfect Baked Potatoes..
- Creamed Spinach. Another great side dish. Quite traditional!.
