Christmas dinner was always a Prime Rib Roast as far back as I can remember. When I began cooking Christmas dinner I made the same meal. This recipe is fool proof. The meat is pink through out the roast or medium rare.

    Cut in the roast randomly little slits along the top. Place a clove of garlic in this slit. Now rub meat well with salt and pepper all over the roast.

    Place in a low pan with rack on the bottom so meat is not sitting in grease.

    TIP: Place dinner plates in oven to warm them before placing meat on plate. Use a potholder and do not get plates too hot ~ you just want to warm them.

    TIP: For those who have people who prefer the ENDS or meat doner than medium rare, BUY two small roast versus one BIG roast. This was you will have more ends with meat done to medium and medium well.
