Herb-Crusted Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding with Red Wine Jus
Have your butcher cut the ribs from the roast and tie them back on. Use muffin tins if you don't have popover pans. Preheating the pans makes the popover batter start cooking and fluffing the second you pour it in.
Rosemary-Dijon Crusted Standing Rib Roast
A standing rib roast is a bone-in prime rib roast. Serve with roasted potatoes and steamed green beans.

Easy "Prime" Rib
This holiday classic is all about technique—roast at a low temperature to ensure gently cooked meat with a medium-rare center. We kept the seasonings simple to allow the meat to star. Although called "prime" rib, there are few prime-grade beef rib roasts sold to consumers; most go to restaurants. The two grades just below prime, choice and select, are leaner than prime and still quite tasty. Ask your butcher to French the roast (that is, trim the meat to expose the bones).

Coriander and Black Pepper-Crusted Rib Roast with Roasted Onions
Coriander lends subtle but exotic flavor to this perennial favorite. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the roast is cooked to your liking, and remember its internal temperature will rise about another five to 10 degrees as it stands. The longer the meat rests, the more juice it will retain.
