Prime Rib with Horseradish Sauce Recipe

Prime Rib with Horseradish Sauce Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Bake: 3 hours YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 bone-in beef rib roast (4 to 6 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
  • HORSERADISH SAUCE:
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 450°. Brush roast with oil; rub with pepper. Place roast, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes.
  • 2. Reduce heat to 325°. Bake 2-3/4 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting with pan drippings every 30 minutes.
  • 3. Let stand 10-15 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with beef. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"This is a very good recipe- BUT- your meat internal cooking temps are way off! You should start at 125 degrees for med rare. Also when you cook any expensive cut of meat you should let it get close to room temp before cooking. That way it will cook more even. When you remove the meat from the oven, tent it with some foil & let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes. In that period of time your roast will still continue to cook. And the meat internal temp will go up about another 8 degrees.

"Even tho I didn't make this using this recipe, I do the same thing with wonderful results. Noting some of the variances some other have mentioned. I just wanted to add another way of making the horseradish sauce that came from my B.C. cookbook from the early 60's. I use 1/2 cup whipping cream, beaten until thick, add 1/2 tsp salt-and then 3 Tbsp well drained horseradish. This makes aout 1 cup. We like this even better than with the sour cream."

"What a mess in my oven! Other sites recommend putting a tent lightly over the roast and using an oven temp of 500 degrees per pound of meat for 5-9 minutes, depending on how rare the meat should be. Don't open the oven door and turn off the heat and let the roast sit for an hour. While the roast and sauce was perfect the time spent cleaning was disappointing."

1 small container of whipping cream
add 1 Tsp. coleman's mustard
Whip till stiff
Then fold in approximately 1 small jar of horseradish
This holds together better than using sour cream"

"Good recipe except for being cooked to long. I cook mine to rare which should read 125 degrees on the meat thermometer. It will continue to cook when you pull it out of the oven and sit it to rest reaching 130 finally. The ends of the roast will be Med to Med-rare with the center being rare. This allows for a serving of just about everyone to their satisfaction."

"For Christmas Day I cooked a 6.5 pound Prime Rib for my family using this recipe as a guide. It was delicious! I made a few enhancements: First, I rubbed the prime rib with 2 T of Balsamic vinegar (a hint from a chef friend!). I increased the olive oil rub to 2 T and added minced garlic, along with 1 T of finely diced fresh rosemary and fresh thyme. (Be sure to line your roasting pan with aluminum foil or use a cooking spray to help with clean up!) Along with the delicious horseradish sauce in this recipe, I also served heated au jus sauce (packaged).
