How To Cook a Prime Rib Perfect Every Time
Au Jus Recipe, Horseradish Recipe

prime rib roast

How long to cook prime rib? ... that's easy,
follow these simple instructions,
this recipe will always produce a perfect roast no matter what size you are preparing.
Serve with my succulent
au jus dipping sauce and    horseradish sauce.

Recipe Type: beef rib, meat, roast, main entree, dinner party

Total Time: 2 hr 10 min
Prep Time:10 min
Cook Time:2 hr
Serving size: 1/4 to 1/2 pound meat per person


Prime Rib roast, bone-in preferred but not necessary,
room temperature, very  important!
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons dried thyme

6 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Au Jus recipe below
Horseradish sauce

(3 easy steps
to cook Prime Rib Roast)

1. In a small bowl combine Dijon mustard, thyme and garlic. Spread generously on the meat, add salt and pepper.  Place roast in roasting pan, do not add water and do not cover!

2. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

3. How long to cook roast in the oven? That is easy! This method is foolproof AND very accurate, it will always be perfect! Multiply the total roast poundage by 5 minutes. Be as accurate as possible.
Example: the total weight of the prime meat is 5.53 pounds. Multiply 5.53 (pounds) times 5 (minutes) which equals = 27.65. This means the roast will cook in the oven for (27.65) or almost 28 minutes at 500 degrees. After 28 minutes immediately turn oven temperature off. Do not open oven door during the next 2 hours the roast is still cooking.

This method will cook any size prime rib roast to perfection... rare to medium rare inside the way it should be with a crispy outer crust. If you prefer your prime rib more well done, roast at 6 minutes per pound. Serve beef with au jus and horseradish sauce.

Au Jus
(I created this
recipe because I wanted an easy delicious quick dipping sauce)
10-1/2 ounce can French Onion soup
10-1/2 ounce can Beef Broth
1 can cold water
1/2 teaspoon white granulated sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon salt

Bring ingredients to a boil in saucepan; strain, discard onions. Serve au jus dipping sauce hot in small containers if desired alongside a slice of perfectly cooked prime meat. Can be made 2 days ahead. Makes 3-1/2 cups. Use with French Dip Sandwiches also.

Horseradish Sauce

(I created this easy and delicious recipe because I like it zesty)
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup prepared hot horseradish
1 teaspoon salt

Combine ingredients in a medium sized bowl, cover and refrigerate to develop flavors. Serve in small containers if desired alongside a slice of this delicious cut of meat. Can be made 2 days ahead. Makes 1-1/4 cups.

Wine recommendation: Merlot; Cabernet Sauvignon;
