Good Morning, Q Treepers! Merry Christmas! I promised Plain Jane a recipe for her Prime Rib, but thought the recipe might get lost in the comments, meaning she would not see it. Therefore, a post might grab her attention. Yet, we can use this post as a recipe thread for all kinds of wonderful tidbits to share. Please feel free to post away and include your family favorites.
Here’s the Prime Rib
This is for Plain Jane – “How to cook the Prime Rib, from Karl, the old Milwaukee Butcher.” I received this recipe in the early 90’s, and we’ve done it this way for decades in our home with great success. Tried and true recipe = no fear.
The size of the roast makes no difference. Have Rib Roast at room temp; season well. Place in a preheated 375 degree oven and roast for one hour.
Then, turn oven off.
DO NOT open the door for any reason.
Roast may sit this way for 4-5 hours. Turn oven back on when ready to serve. Roast 30 minutes for rare, and 40 minutes for medium rare.
Carve and serve at once.
Note: I take the Prime Rib out of the fridge, season with salt and pepper and fresh minced garlic….. then spray well with PAM, which seals juices and makes a nice crust. I let the roast stand on the counter for about an hour to rise to room temp, THEN put it in the oven on a rack with pan underneath. That way you get a crust, all the way around.
