Perfect Prime Rib and Fave Thanksgiving Moments

Saturday, December 2, 2017

The day after Thanksgiving, we were not done eating yet. Mr Sweetie bought prime rib for us for the day after.  I cooked it and it turned out perfectly medium rare. With caesar salad, warm rolls, horseradish and sour cream, it was a delicious meal. (I only really had a few delicious bites of the meat because I was still full from yesterday's turkey.) It was just a  delicious distant memory now. I cooked it for 5 hours so I might as well post all the pictures here!

Rib Roast Cooking Guide
  1.  Cook rib in pre-heated oven at 500 degrees for 30 minutes.
  2.  Turn the oven down to 200 degrees and continue to cook for 20-30 minutes per pound or until a thermometer inserted in the middle reads: 
  •  125 - 135 degrees  for rare
  •  135 - 145 degrees for medium rare
  •  145 - 155  degrees for medium
  •  155 - 165  degrees for medium well
  •  165    degrees well done
Let rest for 15 minutes before carving.
