    Pinning this, Peggy. We cooked a prime rib last year. The flavor was amazing, but it was a bit undercooked for my liking (I like it medium/medium rare). Thank you for this recipe.

      Thanks so much Kelly! Prime Rib is always a hit, and you can always cook it a bit longer if you prefer, or even reheat a slice in the microwave. My main saying I always share on cooking beef- you can always cook it more, but once you’ve cooked it too long- you can’t reverse it. Hope Gracie is doing well and that dog training school went well over the weekend.

    For whatever reason, I’m not the biggest prime rib fan. That being said, it always seems like the perfect holiday meal, at least on Christmas Eve. This looks delish!

      Thanks P.J. different tastes for each his own, so there are lots of other choices, but yes, I do think the Prime Rib is an overall favorite for holiday meals! Thanks for stopping by!
