Prime Rib Standing Rib Roast

Prime Rib Standing Rib Roast

This Prime Rib Standing Rib Roast is a Prime example of what Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen is all about.  I saved $20 bucks on this meat due to the fact that I scored a sale.  If I bought this Roast before Christmas day it would’ve cost me well over $55 dollars with tax, but because the store over stocked for the holidays and it didn’t sell they run the risk of losing it altogether and throwing it out without making a dime.  So they drop the price.  And, in this case they dropped the price dramatically.  Only 2 days left on the expiration date but the meat still looks great, and after the price drop, plus the $5 dollar off coupon attached to the label, this 7.5 lb Rib Roast only cost me $30 bucks!

Prime Rib Standing Rib Roast Ingredients:

1 Beef Rib Roast
1/3 cup Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Aju (optional)
Horseradish (optional)

Marinade
4 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper

Cover the Rib Roast with Salt and Pepper, especially the fat side.  Then combine all the marinade ingredients and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes and coat the entire roast with the marinade, gently massaging the mixture into the meat on all sides.  Refrigerate for 24 hours if possible, then roast at 350 for 20 to 22 Minutes per pound (below is a basic meat time and temperature guide).  Let the Roast cool for 5 minutes before cutting into the meat after cooking.  Then serve with Aju and Horseradish.
