Italian Style Prime Rib Roast
No… your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you… that is 24, yes, 24 pounds of PRIME RIB right there.
My In-Laws have always done Prime Rib for Christmas dinner.
I will honestly tell you that until I had this magnificent dinner, I had never had Prime Rib in my life.
After having it, I would try to order it in a restaurant, and it was such a HUGE disappointment!
They do it best I will tell you.
I’m not sure why I should be surprised, though.
In the department of Mother and Father In-Law, I just plain hit the jack pot.
They are such a fantastic family, and I thank God for them every night I lay my head on my pillow.
Denny, my Father-in-law, loves to read my blog, and gets a huge kick out of me taking pictures
of food when he visits.
“Don’t ‘cha wanna take a picture of that one, Kala?”
This year, I decided to document the making of the Prime Rib. With the help of my hubby.
If you want to make a Prime Rib that will wow the masses…. here is what it takes!
4-5 pound rump roast or prime rib
or if you’re at our house… 24 pounds….
Denny cuts off a few steaks so they will fit in the pan!
steaks go in the freezer to be enjoyed later
Brian helps his parents do the herb and spice rub after the meat is seared to perfection
goof!! Think he’s excited?!?!
I kept teasing him about his apron. I told him he looked like an elf!
Every time he put it on I looked at him and said “Herbie doesn’t like to make toys!”
we take it out when it reaches 140 degrees so those who like it rare get their way!
Denny trims the fat off of the roast, and begins slicing. He sets an electric frying pan with au jus to the side to cook it a little more for those who don’t like it too pink!
Denny gets everyone’s cut done to their liking. He looks proud here, doesn’t he?
As he SHOULD!
my plate: prime rib, home grown sweet corn, potato casserole and broccoli rice and cheese casserole
(please don’t count the calories!!)
It was hard not to dig in…but I took a picture!! It was MAGNIFICENT!!
I highly recommend you try this next time you make a prime rib!! It’s DIVINE!
