Tips for this Recipe:

1.Leave your butter on the counter for several hours so that it is room temperature. The softer the butter is (without being melted) the easier this recipe will be to make.

2.Buy fresh herbs! The fresher the ingredients, the better the end result will be.

3.When peeling your garlic, smash the head on the counter.The cloves will fall apart easily.

4.To quickly remove the garlic skin, add your garlic to a ramekin or small dish and cover with a similar dish.   Watch the magic happen!  The garlic skin comes right off.

5.If you carve your Prime Rib and it is too rare, don’t panic!Melt some butter in a frying pan and sear each slice of Prime Rib.  The butter creates a delicious crust on the Prime Rib while cooking it to your preferred temperature.

Yea!  It’s time to eat!  I hope you are ready to impress your guests and to indulge in the Best Prime Rib Ever! My favorite part is the crusty goodness on the outside and the roasted garlic that falls out when you cook it!  We love this recipe so much that we tend to get super excited and buy too big of a Prime Rib.  The good news is that it reheats really well.  I literally just reheat it by quickly searing it in a pan with ½ tablespoon of butter and a little of the extra au jus. .  Don’t forget to save your extra au jus!  That stuff is liquid gold!  Yummmmmm!  We hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as we do!
