Primo Prime Rib Roast Recipe

Prime Rib Roast

It’s finally time to get outdoors!

If you’re like me, you’re firing up the grill every chance you get. Preparing great food while enjoying the great outdoors is a one-two punch of happiness for me.

How about mixing it up with this Grilled, Smoked Prime Rib recipe that takes a traditionally inside meal – outside!

Ingredients:
1 (5 lb.) Prime Rib Roast
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tbsp. ancho chile powder
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. sage
salt and pepper
wood chips for smoking, such as hickory, apple or cherry

Directions: Combine the spices and garlic in a bowl with the garlic, salt and pepper and mix to combine. Coat the Prime Rib Roast heavily and evenly and set aside until the coals are ready. Get coals ready for grilling and soak wood chips in water, wine or apple juice for smoking. When the coals are extremely hot, sear the roast over the hottest part of the grill evenly on all sides. Add the wood chips and move to the coolest part of the grill. In a flat smoker, this is farther from the firebox. In a column smoker, this is higher up from the coals. The ideal smoker heat and time is 300 degrees for two hours.

If you don’t have a thermometer on your smoker, continue checking the coals and wood chips. Use a meat thermometer until your roast has an internal temperature of 130 degrees. Remove from the smoker and let rest thirty minutes before slicing.

Servings: 6 to 8

Maybe an Easter Dinner Instead?

Spiral Ham with Carrots

We’ve covered the Easter brunch option. But what if you and your family are more accustomed to the sit-down dinner for Easter?

Of course you can still serve a spiral ham. I always do no matter what time it is.

But there are so many more choices to be the star of this show.

If beef is what you’re craving, you can do a standing rib roast or even a prime rib roast. So juicy and delicious!

A Chateaubriand is also very elegant as an Easter dinner. After all, it’s French!

Add twice baked potatoes, a veggie, bread and a carrot cake for dessert and you’re set!

So what are your Easter dinner go-tos?

Those Glorious Christmas Leftovers

By

It’s that time!

Leftover time!

The holiday dishes have all been put away, but there’s a delicious reminder in the fridge of all that merriment and cheer.

It’s turkey and Chateaubriand and prime rib roast and spiral ham all tucked in their Tupperware beds. Just waiting to be called upon for the Leftover Parade.

There are two ways to go about this.

One: Reheat and serve.

I’m partial to this one because I’m usually exhausted.

-OR-

Two: Repurpose those leftovers into equally dazzling second meals.

My sister-in-law Chef Sandy is a master at this.

Roast turkey becomes turkey soup, turkey stew, turkey enchiladas.

Spiral ham becomes ham omelettes and ham soup.

Chateaubriand? Why, beef sliders, of course!

What are your favorite leftover ideas? Time to whip them up!
