Being on a graduate student budget means learning how to spot out deals at the grocery store. This week’s special was a prime rib roast. Another bonus, it doesn’t take a lot of ingredients to make a delicious prime rib.
I followed this recipe from The Kitchen Magpie. I also used this cooking time chart for the approximate cooking time. One thing I found difficult was getting the butter to stick to the ends of the roast. And yes, use the thermometer to determine cooking temperature cause all ovens are made differently. It came out a little more rare than I like but still tasty. Next time, I might trying using a herb-butter for additional flavour. Also, you can use the drippings to make an easy gravy. Tip: Check the temperature of the roast before your calculated cooking time to avoid over cooking.
