All I want for Christmas is you…& Prime Rib

Prime rib is a staple for us on Christmas Eve. Paired with a piping hot au jus and mashed potatoes, it is incredibly flavorful and a must have. While there are many extravagant renditions, we tend to stick to a very traditional prime rib recipe, which really allows the delicious flavor of the meat to shine.

We have only SIX Whole Bone-in Prime Rib left for our Christmas Special and have reduced the price to 16.99$/lb! We are happy to work with you to figure out the size that will work best for you and the number of guests you will be hosting!

We generally figure about 3/4 of a pound to one pound per person. This depends on your guests and if the prime rib is the main dish or among many others. The night before or the morning of, rub your roast with olive oil then generously sprinkle kosher salt and cracked pepper or whatever variety of spices and herbs that work best for you! Keep it refrigerated until a few hours before cooking to get it up to room temperature. Get your oven up to about 450 degrees and let it hang there for about 20 minutes, letting it get nice and hot while you check if your child’s toothbrush is wet because he swears he brushed his teeth, kick the cat off the couch, and sip your coffee that has gone cold. The great thing about having the bone in is that is acts as it’s own rack if you turn it bone side down! Pop that bad boy in for about 15 minutes to get it nice and roasted, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees. We figure about 15 minutes per pound for cooking time and use a digital thermometer to take it out at 120 degrees. Let is rest for about 20 minutes, where the temperature will climb to about 130 degrees for medium-rare. Carve it up and bask in your victory. Use the pan drippings for au jus and serve alongside garlic mashed potatoes and perfect au jus-soaking biscuits or rolls.

Merry Christmas
