This is definitely a gourmet restaurant-quality recipe! I have had this recipe for over 30 years. I have always mixed up batches and given it to people over the holidays. I have been told by everyone that has tried my prime rib that it is the very best they have ever had. I am always asked to season the prime rib for others. I have been giving the recipe out for a few years to others. Now it is yours to try. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as my family does.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This seasoning mix will add tons of flavor to your prime rib. The seasoning creates a nice crust during the cooking process. Between the seasoning and the onions, the au jus sauce for dipping is wonderful. A fantastic way to prepare a holiday prime rib. This is on the salty side. If you are sensitive to salt, we'd cut back a bit. We omitted the optional MSG.
