Prime Rib Made EasyPrime rib is a classic holiday main dish, often paired with horseradish and Yorkshire puddings - especially in Britain. This impressive-looking cut of meat is both delicious and elegant, yet pretty simple to prepare. We've served up seven different ways to season and serve prime rib at your holiday table.
Prime Rib with Horseradish CreamPair roasted prime rib with homemade Horseradish Cream for a show-stopping main dish. Garnish with kumquats, lady apples, and pecans for extra flair.
Salt- and Herb-Crusted Prime Rib with Fresh Horseradish SaucePacking a prime rib roast in a salt crust keeps it moist and makes those richly seasoned end pieces hot items at the table. This herb-crusted prime rib looks gourmet and is full of flavor.
Rosemary Rib RoastPressed garlic, salt, pepper, and crushed rosemary make this prime rib roast subtly succulent. To get all the flavor of the chine bone without the extra work of removing it at home, have the butcher remove the bone and tie it back on for you before leaving the store.
Lemon- and Pepper-crusted Prime Rib Roast with Root VegetablesRoast an 8-lb prime rib cut with shallots and red potatoes that have been tossed in olive oil for a hearty holiday entree. Serve with tequila-infused pan drippings to spoon over meat and vegetables.
Fennel-Crusted Rib RoastRub prime rib with freshly ground peppercorns, coriander, and fennel for a heady combination of seasonings that perfectly complements this elegant cut of meat. A garnish of fresh cranberries and oranges adds vibrant color to your table, making this dish as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the palate.
