I lucked into a prime rib roast that a friend ordered by mistake. She thought she was buying the rib roast that was on sale, but asked the butcher for a 4 bone prime rib. She ended up with a 10 pound prime rib roast that came in right at $200. So she decided to have a dinner party and invited my wife and myself over. I volunteered to cook the roast, I mean, how many times do you get to play with a $200 piece of meat?

Here are a couple of tips in case you find yourself in the same situation.

Rib Roast Tips

Be sure to have a good meat thermometer! Rib roast are expensive, so you need to make sure you dont overcook your roast, pull at 125 to 130F for medium rare, 135 to 140F for medium.

Try to buy a choice or prime grade rib roast. A prime rib roast is best, but can be very expensive. I normally try to find a choice rib roast with lots of marbling.

How big a roast? The rule of thumb for rib roast is for each bone you can add two people, so a three bone rib roast feeds 6 people.

Here are some pics on how it turned out:






That is one expensive piece of meat!

 
I like to brown my meat with a blowtorch, feel free to use a hot pan Smiley


Roast resting.


Slicing the rib roast, juice was squirting out as I was cutting.


Here is a close-up of how juicy the roast was.

The prime rib roast was great! It better be for around $200. I am just glad I did not mess it up.

Wow. You are making me hungry. A blow torch. Too cool!  Roll Eyes I have seen those used on other cooking shows, too. So it did not shock me. It looks tasty. I generally sear mine in a pan, but maybe I should invest in one of those. It looks like it would be quicker, and no burned fingers. {I use my hands to turn things often...silly me. With live fire, I would remember things are HOT!}. I am glad your dinner turned out grand. It surely looks juicy.  Grin

I have a iwatani torch that cost around $30, they sell them on amazon. I had it 3 or 4 years and use it all the time. It is very easy to use and runs on butane. Anytime you need to brown or add a little char to your steak, just hit it with the torch!
