It’s the star of your holiday table – delicious and flavorful prime rib. Making it is easier than you might think!
Prime rib is actually a cooking method, not a cut of meat. The proper name is standing rib eye roast. However, if you head into our stores and ask for prime rib, our butchers will know what you mean.
Not sure how much you need? Plan for one rib for every two people. When in doubt, ask our butchers.
A meat thermometer is critical to prime rib perfection. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the roast, careful not to touch the bone. Meat continues to cook while resting, so remove the roast 5 to 10 degrees shy of your desired internal temperature.
Let it rest. After removing the roast from the oven, lightly tent with foil and let rest for 10 to 30 minutes before serving.
