There are so many conflicting recipes on how to make the perfect prime rib. We just picked up a 4.12 pound prime rib to cook tonight. What method has worked for you? What would you serve with it?

Haha, we've already posted conflicting recipes - one calls for a salt rub, mine calls for none... I think as long as you choose one that suits your tastes, you can't go wrong. Just don't overcooked it and whichever recipe you choose will be delicious!

  1. Preheat oven to 450* F
  2. Liberally coat roast with kosher or rough sea salt. Crushed dry rosemary goes well here as well.

  3. Roast the roast for 20 minutes at 450* with the fat side up.

  4. Lower the heat to 350* for about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. Check the temperature with a probe thermometer and try to aim for 125* or so (for "rare", generally). If not, I'd err on the side of (4lb roast, 1 hour and 15 minutes).

  5. Remove from oven and let it sit for 20 minutes.

  6. NOM

*edit - forgot the rest of the question. Any combination of the following, I would serve: a big spinach/strawberry salad with bacon and walnuts, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted baby blue potatoes, pureed rutabagas with heavy cream, grilled bacon-wrapped asparagus with lemon butter, etc...

I've cooked many a standing rib roast ("prime rib"), and I just published the recipe a couple weeks ago. It's so good, and so easy, that MDA linked it!

This method has worked great for me: http://whatscookingamerica.net/Beef/ClassicPrimeRib.htm

And I serve it with cauliflower which has been grated and then cooked in tallow or bacon fat ( and I like to include some chopped bacon, onions, salt pepper)

A nice salad and some bacon fat fried mushrooms for the meat and you are done!
