Easter Standing Rib Roast

One of my neighbors works for a liquor distributor, and he supplies me with wood chips.

Look what was outside my back door on Easter morning, just in time for the Prime rib cook.
9 bags, that oughta last a while:

A 7.5 lb. rib roast, slathered with a paste of garlic, rosemary, EVOO, S & P:

I made Mainegg's roasted tomato dip, and we shared this out on the balcony, while the rib roast was on the egg:

My friend came over and brought us some Argentinian sparkling wine, so we had that along with the rest of the dip:

I forgot to take pics of the roast on the egg!! I guess it happens sometimes, maybe it was the wine!

Anyway, egged it at 325 dome for 2 1/4 hours. I cooked it to medium because that was the consensus.

It was a beauty:

I used Mainegg's horseradish sauce - sour cream, horseradish, dijon mustard, little mayo, S & P, scallion tops. Really great with the meat; Served with roasted potatoes.
The rolls are for the teenager~

Plated, at least I didn't forget to take that pic!

Now the exciting part, the disinterested teenager got to use the culinary torch on the creme brulee. Yes, he liked dessert (hard to believe).

Served with some fruit:

And also served with homemade Mint Julep Ice Cream!! (the teenager liked this too!)~ I am making this again!

This was the day we had yesterday while I was out lighting the egg. Summer weather pattern is here, we had a big thunderstorm when I got done egging.

But maybe the best part of all, the leftovers for lunch today, served on a rosemary Ciabatta roll with the horseradish sauce. YUM.

I hope everyone had a nice Easter.

    Hi Faith,

    That looks perfect! I did one on Saturday myself. I actually went a little "too medium". My I ask what temperature you pulled yours off and how long you let it rest? I really like the color on that one!

    It still turned out quite edible, and I must say I love the prime rib sandwich! All the kids (6 or so running around) made prime rib and mashed tater sliders and loved them. I have to admit I had one for desert myself!


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • Smokeypitt, I like medium rare, but in this instance I pulled it at 132-134, and rested about 20 minutes. It was still nice and pink, texture was perfect.

    Faith that is one of the best looking prime cooks that has been posted.

    The rest of the meal looks great too. Thanks for posting.

    I'm jealous of the doc picture... looks like a bit of snow tonight according to the weather guessers.

  • bees, ahh, the thrill of fire! Actually, the teenager was not all that impressed with the torch. He would have preferred something more powerful, I'm sure!

    Faith, you always have such wonderful looking cooks. Wish I lived closer - I would crash your parties. :laugh:

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Morning Faith:

    Beautiful looking hunk of cow and potatoes (you can keep the green stuff along with those tomatoes :laugh: ).

    Certainly better that what we had yesterday...went to my son's in-laws and had a somewhat dry HoneyBaked ham, plus asparagusa and some potato thing...I was nice and ate the ham & potatoes, but really wanted to be home cooking something else! Ah, the joys of pleasing your children :ermm: :whistle:

    Have a GREAT day!

    Wow Faith, You had some scrumptious deserts with your nice roast. :P

    Your folks look so happy sitting there and eating some tomato dip. :)

    Your table settings look very nice.

    I'll have to try Mainegg's roasted tomato dip and I never had creme brulee. One of these days. ;)

  • Egret, what size is your ice cream machine? I had to cut the recipe to fit mine, and I can adjust it to your machine. Guess you already know the special ingredients in the Mint Julep ice cream, BOURBON and MINT!

  • Bubba Tim, everyone knows that peanut butter eggs and sparkling wine pair well together! You would be surprised how many of the eggs got eaten in addition to 2 sweet desserts.

  • Sorry about that, Jay. I never heard about dried out Honey Baked before. I know you will make up for the missed egging sometime this week.

    BTW, the culinary torch would work well for your rum soaked sugar cubes. I got it at Rolling Pin.

    That, my friend, is one great looking meal. I love how well you dress the table also. Mind telling be what brand of ciabatta bread that is? Thanks for the post!
