Prime rib is an ultimate indulgence for steak lovers, because it is cut from the tender rib roast of USDA Prime beef. It is prepared by slow roasting, which creates a succulent texture from gently melted fat marbled through the cut with a perfect crust on the exterior edges. When you want to tempt your taste buds with prime rib, follow these guidelines for an unforgettable dining experience at a steak restaurant:
- Order Meat on the Rare Side
The beauty of prime rib is that it is amazingly tender when cooked to the rarest temperatures. Rare to medium rare will offer the biggest beef flavor and the juiciest texture for this main course. Ordering the meat at temperatures higher than medium will reduce the uniquely delicious qualities of the Prime beef.
- Spice It Up with Horseradish
Traditionally, horseradish is a customary condiment for prime rib. It can be served raw or prepared with sour cream. Horseradish packs a spicy punch that hits the tip of the tongue and fades quickly. A light dollop of horseradish, raw or prepared, is sufficient for the whole dish, as you don’t want to drown out the flavor of the meat.
- Dip Each Bite in Au Jus
As the prime rib roast cooks, pan juices are collected to make a light sauce that is served right alongside the meat. Pour the jus directly over the whole piece of meat or dip each bite in it for a palate pleasing accent to the tender beef.
- Choose a Bold Red Wine to Drink
The classic pairing of a full-bodied red wine and red meat is ideal for a traditional American steakhouse. Pair your prime rib with a rich red wine to enjoy this traditional pairing to the fullest.
