- One 7-pound prime rib bone-in roast, tied
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 10 large sage sprigs
- 10 large thyme sprigs
- 4 bay leaves
- 4 shallots, peeled and halved
- ½ head garlic, cloves crushed, plus 2 cloves thinly sliced
- 1 cup water
- ½ onion, thinly sliced
- 1 and ½ tablespoons freshly cracked black peppercorns
- ½ cup dry red wine (we suggest Pessoa da Vinha 2010 – good for cooking and drinking!)
- 2 and ½ cups beef stock or low-sodium broth
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- Preheat the oven to 400°. Set the meat in a large roasting pan, fat side up. Season the meat generously with salt and pepper. Around the roast, scatter 10 sprigs each of sage and thyme, 6 of the bay leaves, the shallots and the crushed garlic cloves. Pour in 1 cup of the water and roast for 45 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 275°. Roast the meat for about 2 hours and 15 minutes longer, adding the remaining 1 cup of water to the pan as the juices evaporate. The roast is done when an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 135°.
- Transfer the roast to a large carving board. Pour the fat in the roasting pan into a large heatproof bowl, stopping when you reach the syrupy pan juices at the bottom. Pour the pan juices into a small bowl and discard the vegetables and herbs.
- Set the pan over 2 burners and add 2 tablespoons of the reserved fat. Add the onion, peppercorns and the sliced garlic, remaining 2 bay leaves and 10 sprigs each of sage and thyme. Cook over moderate heat until the onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Add the wine and cook, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom and sides of the pan. Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the beef stock and pan juices and cook over moderate heat until slightly reduced, about 15 minutes.
- In a small bowl, whisk the flour with 2 tablespoons of the reserved fat. Whisk the paste into the saucepan and simmer the gravy until thickened, about 5 minutes. Strain the gravy through a fine sieve and keep warm until ready to serve.
- Cut the bones off the roast and slice the meat 1/2 inch thick. Cut in between the bones and serve them on the side. Pass the gravy at the table.
Serve your prime rib roast with:
Sautéed Garlic Spinach: (serves 6)
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 20 ounces fresh spinach, (see Note)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add spinach and toss to coat. Cover and cook until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add lemon juice, salt and crushed red pepper. Toss to coat and serve immediately.
Roasted Rosemary Potatoes: (Serves 8)
- 1 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1/4 cup kosher salt plus more
- 3 pounds waxy potatoes (such as Yukon Gold; about 5), peeled, cut into 3/4-inch wedges
- 4 garlic cloves, smashed
- 6 small sprigs rosemary
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°. Bring vinegar, 1/4 cup salt, and 4 quarts water to a boil in a large pot. Add potatoes and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes; drain.
- Transfer potatoes to a large rimmed baking sheet and toss with garlic, rosemary, wine, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast potatoes, tossing occasionally, until completely tender and just beginning to brown, 35–45 minutes.
