Christmas Eve Prime Rib ~ Merry Christmas!


Tradition here is Prime Rib, Standing  Rib Roast, 
on 
Christmas Eve. 
 

My fave carver, slicing it up!


It doesn’t get much better than a beautiful slice of beef, cooked rare.  This is my version; served along with delicious Caesar salad, Hasselback potatoes, oyster dressing, sautéed green beans with mushrooms, and a nice flaky dinner roll, with caramel cheesecake to top it off. 



Our prime rib is ordered from our local Italian butcher shop.  The butcher trimmed a large part of the fat off, then cut the bone off and brought it all back together by tying it with string.  It’s perfect, easy to roast and even easier for slicing. 



Allow the meat to stand at room temperature for an hour;  rub it with salt, a little pepper, and garlic powder, before roasting it in a 350° oven, until it reaches 120° internally.  Upon removing it  from the oven, let it stand for about 25 minutes before slicing.  By then, it will the register about 130° on the thermometer. 





This is my favorite cut of meat, and it’s cooked to perfection, very tender, juicy and delectable!









 HERE’S WISHING
YOU ALL
A VERY
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  10. Pam, Fine looking standing rib roast! This is my favorite cut of meat. You cooked it perfectly, exactly the same temp and doneness that we go for. We had prime rib for Thanksgiving and we had Big Dude over for dinner that day. We will learn what Christmas dinner will be based on Christmas Eve when our butcher calls us and lets us know if he got our order in. We may end up (what a shame!) with prime rib again! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
