Perfect Prime Rib

Kyle Dalakas


I don’t think there is any cut of beef more perfect for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day dinner than a juicy, tender cut of prime rib. Also known as standing rib roast, this is a rich and tender, a feast for the eyes and stomach! Prime rib is also very easy to cook. Liberally rub the roast with a combination of sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder and oregano. Start at a high temperature to brown the outside, then cook at a lower temperature. A medium rare prime rib, pink and juicy on the inside, registers 120 degrees. I usually purchase a 7 to 8 pound roast, which easily feeds six people
