Prime Rib Christmas Special


  • 1 (7 pound) bone-in beef prime rib roast
  • 3 cloves garlic, halved and cut into slivers
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup prepared horseradish
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 3 stalks celery, cut into chunks
  • 1 large onion, cut into chunks
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


  • Step 2

    With a small sharp knife, make cuts in the meaty side of the beef roast, and insert slivers of garlic into the cuts. Lay the roast in a roasting pan with the rib side down. Mash the 3 cloves of minced garlic, horseradish, thyme, rosemary, kosher salt, black pepper, and olive oil in a bowl to make a paste. Rub the paste all over the roast, including the rib bones. Scatter the carrots, celery, and onion into the roasting pan around the meat.

  • Step 3

    Roast the meat in the preheated oven until browned and a quick-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the roast reads 135 degrees F (57 degrees C), for medium-rare meat, about 2 hours and 20 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Remove the roast to a carving board, and allow to rest for 10 minutes. The temperature of the roast should rise to 145 degrees F (65 degrees C).

  • Step 5

    Pour the pan drippings into a bowl, and skim excess fat. To serve, carve the roast into 1-inch thick slices, arrange slices on a platter, and place vegetables around the meat. Pour the pan juices over the meat and vegetables.
