Roast Prime Rib of Beef

Roast Prime Rib of BeefI most certainly wish I could tell you the recipe I’m about to share was all mine, but I can’t.  It’s the recipe of Chef Ron Lock!

I had been churning over what to feed my family for New Years Eve dinner when I saw someone post his Prime Rib link.  The picture captured my attention.  My first thought was I don’t want to get such an expensive cut of meat and ruin it.  I had never ventured to make a Prime Rib before since it’s so delicious and seems pretty hard to master.  I looked up his recipe and was shocked to see the difficulty level at EASY.  Huh?  Prime Rib that’s easy to make.

I read through the directions and thought if it’s as easy as he says then even I can do it.

Here is the link to this wonderful and pretty easy recipe Roast Prime of Beef  by Chef Ron Lock

I do recommend following the recipe instructions exactly.

When he says oven temperature is important, it is!  I didn’t think an oven temperature could be off my very much.  I was just going to wing it and trust my oven.  A few hours before cooking time I broke down and bought a cheap oven thermometer.  As it turns out, my oven runs just about 50 degrees hotter.  Wow!  That could have made a big difference.

Another pointer, when Chef Ron Lock says to be generous with the salt follow that.  I was not shy with any of the seasonings or butter for that matter and was not disappointed at all.  In fact, I was thrilled and so was everyone else at the table.  If the juices in your pan are too salty for your liking the chef also provides an outstanding Au Jus.  For me the meat was perfectly juicy and flavorful without it.  This is one of my favorite recipes I’ve ever tried.  The ease, the outstanding taste and the ability to cut it with my fork.  Tenderness of butter.  Need I say more?

If you read through the comments at the bottom of Chef Ron’s page you will see he gives adjustments for different ways of cooking the roast other than medium rare.  His Spicy Horseradish looks like a must try too!

We enjoyed our meal with some Okinawan sweet potatoes and a nice simple salad. Yummy, what a way to ring in the New Year!

Do you have Prime Rib recipe you’d like to share with me?  I’d love to hear what you did and what you ate as you said hello to 2014!

    Hi Debbie!! Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday! Looks delicious! Isn’t it wonderful when you try a new recipe and get it right! Lol! Since the bowl games were on, we did comfort foods…meatballs, deviled-eggs, veggies and dip, roast beef sandwiches, chips and dip and meats and cheeses. So glad no one had to go anywhere the next day, lol!
