Mustard-Crusted Prime Rib with Madeira Glaze
This juicy prime rib is spectacular on its own, but the rich Madeira glaze takes it up a notch to wow at special dinners. What's even better is that it roasts with a bed of tender veggies, so you have the whole holiday meal covered in one pan. —Kathryn Conrad, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 2-1/2 hours + standing
- 1 bone-in beef rib roast (about 5 pounds)
- 1/2 cup stone-ground mustard
- 6 small garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pink peppercorns, optional
- 2 pounds medium Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into eighths (about 2-inch chunks)
- 4 medium carrots, halved lengthwise and cut into 2-inch pieces
- 1 medium red onion, cut into eighths (but with root end intact)
- 1 medium fennel bulb, cut into eighths
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- MADEIRA GLAZE:
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup Madeira wine
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- Cracked pink peppercorns, optional
- Let roast stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 450°. Combine mustard, garlic, brown sugar, salt and, if desired, peppercorns; brush evenly over top and sides of roast but not over bones (mixture may seem loose but will adhere). Place bone side down on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Place pan on middle oven rack; immediately reduce heat to 350°. Roast 1 hour.
- Toss potatoes, carrots, onion and fennel with next 5 ingredients. Arrange vegetables in a single layer in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan on lowest rack of oven. Roast meat and vegetables, stirring vegetables midway through baking, until meat reaches desired doneness (a thermometer should read 135° for medium-rare, 140° for medium and 145° for medium-well), about 1-1/2 hours. Cover roast loosely with foil during last 30 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Let stand 15 minutes before carving.
- Meanwhile, for glaze, combine balsamic vinegar, Madeira wine and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 15 minutes. Let glaze cool to room temperature. Serve roast with vegetables and glaze and, if desired, pink peppercorns and fennel fronds.
