It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to serve a Prime Rib Roast. In fact, it is quite rare for most people.
The good news is that if you happen to be one of those lucky few who are cooking up a prime rib roast this Holiday season, there are some things you can do ahead of time in order to make sure your dinner party goes as smoothly as possible.
These 11 tips will help ensure that your guests enjoy their meal and don’t go home hungry!
Prime rib roasts are notoriously difficult to cook. They have a lot of fat and connective tissue that provides flavour but can make the meat tough or dry if not handled properly.
The secret is in getting your oven as hot as possible before you put it inside so the meat sears within an inch of its life without overcooking the outside layer.
This will lead to juicier meat on top with crispy outer edges! Rib roasts come from either beef cattle or dairy cows (primarily Holstein).
You might be able to tell which one by looking at their ribs; beef ribs tend to have more space between them than do those for dairy cows because they don’t produce milk throughout all nine months like beef.
