Recipes - Prime Rib

When deciding on the size of prime rib you will need determine how many people you will be serving. You should figure between 3/4-1 lb per person (slightly less if there are kids in the group). If you buy the prime rib from us you may request to have it marinated for your convenience.


  • Prime Rib
  • Excalibur's Prime Rib Rub (recommended)
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons thyme
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • 2 cups water
  • Liquid Smoke

  1. To prepare the prime rib preheat oven to 325 degrees. We recommend rubbing the roast with Excalibur's Prime Rib Rub.
  2. After rubbing, place the roast in a roasting pan rib side down.
  3. In a small bowl mix garlic, rosemary, thyme, and black pepper.
  4. Add enough olive oil to make a paste.
  5. Smear paste over the whole roast.
  6. Place cut up potatoes, onions, carrots and whatever other kind of vegetables you like around the roast.
  7. Roast approximately 20-22 minutes per pound.
  8. When time is up check several spots with a thermometer 125 degrees for medium rare, 130-135 for medium to medium well.
  9. Take the roast out of the oven and let "rest" for 20 minutes to allow the roast finish cooking and the juices to settle.
  10. Remove the vegetables and let sit covered.
  11. Pour drippings into a fat separator.
  12. Discard fat and put drippings back into roasting pan with 2 cups of water and a small amount of liquid smoke.
  13. Place roasting pan on stove top on medium and scrape the brown bits on bottom of the pan season with salt and pepper to taste.
  14. Continue to cook until the mixture has reduced by half stirring occasionally.
For a little variety substitute water for a cabernet wine. Slice prime rib and serve with au jus. Enjoy!!
