If you add a Liter of Sprite to this Prime Rib Roast it will be Juicier and it will tenderize the meat too.Happy Holiday's

Delicious! I started with a great cut of meat and the flavours just melted in your mouth. I might tweak the red wine that I use the next time I make it. Thanks for sharing, I'll serve it again and again and again!

I made this twice, Christmas and Father's Day, just to be sure it was not a fluke! Everyone loved it and could not believe it was so tender. I used pepper corns the second time and got an even more favorable review from my husband than he gave first time at Christmas. The price of the meat is well worth it. The satisfaction and compliments of your guests will be one for the memory books of gatherings!!!!

I made this roast for Easter dinner. It has an excellent flavor, but turned out a bit on the dry side because I think I should have covered it (I live in high elevation).

Great rub, great tasting prime rib! Had a small (2-1/2lb) roast for two of us, made half of the rub to accommodate the small size. We like ours medium-well, so cooked at 350 for 1 hour/40minutes (160 temp) - perfect. Did not like the Au Jus recipe so made my own using Campbell's French Onion soup and worchestershire sauce. Keeper recipe for sure!
