Christmas Prime Rib
You can't go wrong with prime rib for Christmas dinner or a special holiday meal. Try a marinated prime rib roast, ancho-rubbed prime rib with grilled papaya butter, or one of our other delicious prime rib recipes for an impressive Christmas main course.
There are occasions that call for a champagne toast, holiday gatherings that all but require roast turkey or smoked ham, but when you're celebrating something so big you need to pull out all the stops, you'll want to know how to cook prime rib. Prime rib, sometimes called a standing roast, is the piece de resistance of beef roasts. It can be served with or without ribs and can satisfy a hungry crowd. But it's not inexpensive, so you'll want to make sure you get it perfect.
Contrary to popular belief, learning how to make oven-cooked prime rib isn't difficult at all. Originally served at English holiday feasts, the traditional accompaniment was Yorkshire pudding and gravy. Today, prime rib is just as often served with roasted potatoes and carrots cooked in the same pan and basted with the drippings. Prime rib is the choicest cut of beef, imbued with a rich flavor. It does have more fat and cholesterol than other cuts of beef, but the flavor is so good that meat lovers are often willing to make the trade off (at least once in a while).
Be the hostess with the mostest -- indulge your guests with not one sauce for their succulent pepper-popped prime rib, but two. Both the Merlot Au Jus and creamy horseradish sauce are classic British accompaniments for roasts of this stature.
Prime rib is good on its own but we decided to spice it up for this simple dinner recipe. Give it a try!
When life calls for a celebration, prime rib comes to the rescue. The homemade spice rub is delicious on the beef in this elegant entree, but it also complements more affordable cuts of beef, or even pork or chicken.
For an elegant holiday meal, try this combination of rib roast, onions, apricots, and mustard.
