To ring in the New Year, we invite friends for dinner. A menu featuring tender prime rib is festive, yet simple to prepare. A pepper rub and mild horseradish sauce complement the beef's great flavor. —Paula Zsiray, Logan, Utah
I've discovered a variety of small roasts that work well for two, without creating leftovers for the rest of the week. This prime rib is perfect for a holiday meal when company isn't coming. The portion for each is generous, and the flavor is unsurpassed.

This roast made its debut a few years back at Christmastime, when I made it instead of our traditional turkey dinner. Now we have a new tradition everyone looks forward to.—Tim Buckmaster, Millsboro, Delaware
