Roast Prime Rib of Beef – A Holiday Favorite!
One of my favorite meals is Roast Prime Rib of Beef. While it may look challenging to prepare, by following my simple tips, I guarantee your Prime Rib will turn out perfect, juicy, and succulent! This will be one of the easiest dishes you’ll ever prepare, and is perfect to serve family, and guests for the holidays.
Since first posting this recipe back in 2012, I updated it in 2013 with a video after receiving numerous emails, and fears of how it may turn out. I realize purchasing an expensive cut of meat to then prepare, with the chance it could be ruined is terrifying! However, mark my word, if you follow my instructions to the “T” you’ll end up with a stellar piece of prime rib.
Watch my video, take notes, and read the instructions below as well. If you’re still on the fence, but desperately want to try this, please contact me and I’ll walk you through it, or gladly Skype a call with you.
