How do you like your prime rib?

And what do you like served with it?

When was the last time you had prime rib? Was it for Christmas dinner or at a sumptuous buffet? Those of us who love this slightly fatty, oozing with flavor cut of beef, also have the sauces and sides we love served with it. Here is a simple herb-crusted prime rib recipe, but how you dress it is all yours. I grew up on pure unadulterated horseradish serve alongside this beautiful cut of beef.

Prime Rib Roast with Vegetable Gravy


  • 5 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® rib roast

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered

  • 1 carrot, peeled and quartered

  • 1 celery stalk, peeled and quartered

  • 4 cups beef broth

  • ¼ cup flour dissolved in ½ cup cold water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine salt, pepper and garlic powder; rub mixture evenly over the entire roast. Place on rack in a shallow roasting pan, fat-side up. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part of roast, making sure tip does not touch bone. Roast uncovered for 30 minutes.

  2. Add onion, carrot and celery and roast an additional 1 to 1-1/2 hours for medium rare. Use meat thermometer to determine desired doneness.

  3. Transfer roast to a cutting board and let rest 15 minutes before carving. Meanwhile, skim fat from roasting pan juices. Place pan on top of range, add broth and bring to a boil, scraping bottom and sides to incorporate all roast drippings. Reduce heat and simmer broth and vegetables for 10 minutes.

  4. Purée vegetables and broth in blender or food processor. Pour back into roasting pan or large saucepan and return to heat. Thicken with flour and water mixture over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve gravy with sliced roast.
