Prime Rib Recipe, How to Cook Prime Rib

Every Christmas our family has Prime Rib for dinner. Years ago I found a recipe for prime rib with an herb rub and a home made horseradish sauce, and it's delicious. Our family look forward to it every year. Enjoy!

PRIME RIB ROAST
with Herb Rub and Horseradish Sauce

ROAST:
  • 4 lb. beef rib roast
  • 1 clove garlic, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • Herb Rub (below)
  • Horseradish Sauce, if desired (below)

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare Herb Rub. Place beef, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Rub garlic over beef. Spread mustard over top and sides of beef. Spread herb rub over top and sides of beef. Insert thermometer so tip is in center of thickest part of beef and does not touch the bone. Roast uncovered, 1 1/2 - 2 hours, or until thermometer reads 140 degrees (medium doneness; 130 for rare; 150 for well done). Cover beef loosely with foil tent and let stand about 15 minutes, or until thermometer reads 140 degrees. Serve beef with Horseradish sauce.

Serves 8

HERB RUB:

  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves (or 1 1/2 tsp. dried)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary leaves (or 1 1/2 tsp. dried)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Mix all ingredients.

HORSERADISH SAUCE:

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. horseradish (more if you want it hotter)
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. coarsely ground pepper

Mix all ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors.
