Earlier in the week we found in the deep freeze to our surprise... a prime rib! Oh, yeah! what a find. Almost as good as finding a $20 in your pocket... Can I say... SCORE! My husband has been salavating all week. He was researching recipes online all week, to find the best one... funniest thing is that he didn't find one but he said we needed to find prime rib spice mix. So a quick trip to the grocery store (ie. Walmart) did not give us prime rib spice mix... but he settled for some kosher salt and a pepper grinder, and a digital meat thermometer. So, we get home and he wants me to make the spice rub, but telling me what to put in it...
4-5 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp fresh ground pepper
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp garlic
4.47lb prime rib
mixed and put on the top of the prime rib...
From there he took over. The prime rib was room temperature.. Internal temperature was 50F. After we placed the wet rub on the prime rib we placed it in an oven that was preheated to a temperature of 500F for 15 minutes then turned it down to 325F for 1 hour 20 min or internal temperature reached 120F for medium rare. (DO NOT OPEN OVEN). Once internal temperature reached 120F we removed the meat and removed the bone and let rest for 20 min. Then it was cut and served. Perfectly medium rare.
This served our family of 5 well. We each had a huge slice approx. 10 oz. My kids all had BIG eyes and full stomachs... We served this with fancy cut green beans and instant mashed potatoes. (I know crazy no fresh potatoes). It was a simple meal, that was amazing. This was a great meal, and fairly simple to prepare. My kids, my husband, we all enjoyed this! If you ever get some prime rib... I highly suggest this recipe and enjoy!
