Our new standing rib roast, or prime rib, has three bones – and everyone knows that meat cooked on the bone tastes best. Roast this epic piece of Angus beef for your holiday meal – it will serve about 6 people (depending on their appetites). Read on for the details.
Just in time for Christmas, we’re excited to introduce a standing prime rib roast. This 7-8 lb beauty has been expertly trimmed and tied by our butchers so you can easily roast and carve it for your holiday meal.
Cooking Your Standing Prime Rib Roast
The steps are simple. The first is to remove the roast from the refrigerator about 1 hour prior to cooking and preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Season simply with ample salt and freshly cracked pepper to enjoy the rich Angus beef flavor. Place roast fat side up in a rack on a shallow pan. Roast for 25 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue to roast for about 15 minutes per pound, or until an instant-read thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 130 – 140 degrees F, for a medium-rare center and the most palate-pleasing experience.
Allow the roast to rest on a cutting board for at least 15 minutes before carving. Present the roast whole, then remove the butcher’s twine, which will release the semi-detached rib segment to make carving easy. Spoon warm pan drippings over, if desired.
Using your sharpest knife, carve into serving portions. A horseradish and cream sauce would make a nice complement, along with roasted or mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding – and, of course, all your favorite holiday sides.
About Our Angus Beef
Our marbled and flavorful Angus beef comes from cattle raised exclusively for D’Artagnan by a cooperative of ranchers committed to strict protocols of humane animal husbandry.
The Black Angus cattle range over pasture land for most of their lives, and then get a supplement of alfalfa hay, barley and corn for a few months in a spacious, dry, low-stress feeding facility, before processing at about 18-22 months of age. The vegetarian feed is supplemented with vitamin E and A which strengthen natural immunities.
The ranchers take every care, even in transporting the cattle short distances. They know exactly where each animal comes from and can track them from birth to processing. Each cattle comes with an affidavit to prove that the rancher followed the strict protocols of the cooperative.
Since 1985, D’Artagnan has been at the forefront of the farm-to-table movement, producing superior tasting products by partnering with small ranches and farms. We are committed to free-range, natural production, sustainable and humane farming practices and no use of antibiotics or hormones. That’s why D’Artagnan products have been revered by America’s most renowned chefs for over 30 years. We offer the same high-quality products to home cooks at dartagnan.com, along with recipes and guides to help you live the tasty life.
