Herb-Crusted Prime Rib Recipe


Herb-Crusted Prime Rib

1 large shallot, coarsely chopped

6 garlic cloves, quartered

3 Tbsp. minced fresh rosemary or 1 Tbsp. dried rosemary

2 Tbsp. minced fresh oregano or 2 tsp. dried oregano

2 Tbsp. minced fresh thyme or 2 tsp. dried thyme

2 Tbsp. minced fresh sage or 2 tsp. rubbed sage

2 Tbsp. olive oil

3 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. salt

1 bone-in beef rib roast (4 lbs.)

Sauce:     1 ½ cups reduced-sodium beef broth

1 cup dry red wine or additional reduced-sodium beef broth

1 tsp. butter

½ tsp. salt


Preheat oven to 350 F.  Place the first six ingredients in a food processor; cover and pulse until finely chopped.  Add oil, pepper and salt; cover and process until blended.  Rub over roast.  Place on a rack in a large roasting pan.

Bake, uncovered for 1 ¾ to 2 ¼ hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare thermometer should read 145 F; medium, 160 F.; well-done, 170 F.)

Remove roast to a serving platter and keep warm; let stand 15 minutes before slicing.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring broth and wine to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to 1 cup.  Remove from heat; stir in butter and salt.  Slice roast; serve with sauce.          8 serving
