This is a very special and savory way to prepare a boneless beef rib roast. Gravy made from the drippings is exceptional. You can also use a ribeye roast with excellent results. — Evelyn Gebhardt, Kasilof, Alaska

"This is so so good. I have made it several times and have been asked several times to make it. Very good, I would recommend this to anyone."

"Good stew. Next time I will try using a 1/2 can of tomato paste and add onions. I used venison and made the pieces a little bigger than an inch cube."

"The extremely well regarded cooking magazine Cook's Illustrated recommends using an instant read thermometer and remove when the center of meat registers about 122 degrees for rare to medium-rare or about 130 degrees for medium-rare to medium. The temperatures recommended in the recipe are those of the USDA. The USDA recommends much higher temperatures because they presume ?iffy? meat quality. The USDA recommends a minimum temperature of 145 degrees? that?s really medium well.

Trust me; the roast shown in the photograph of roast was no more than 120 degrees when it was removed from the oven it should also rest for at least 20 minutes before carving.
120 degrees is the temperature that I routinely use for prime rib? I probably cook eight to ten annually."
