I made this for a dinner party on a Saturday and started marinating it Thursday night. I also used a 6-1/2 lb boneless prime rib roast and put it on a spit on the bbq. I put about an inch of water in a pan underneath to catch the drippings. (Can't waste the good stuff) This was the best roast I had ever made. The flavour of the marinade really made a difference - not to mention the gravy I made with the drippings. The only problem was I left it on too long and ended up with well done instead of medium rare. But it was still sooooooooo very tender and extremely tasty. I can't wait to make this again. Next time I'll make sure it's medium rare. Thanks for a simple recipe with such good flavour.
I fixed this for Thanksgiving and everyone is requesting it again at Christmas. This recipe is a keeper! Just don't count on having leftovers.
Wonderful flavor to our roast. DH and I ate til we were so full of roast. I let mine marinade in the ref. overnight and it came out so tender after baking in oven on low temp. for 2 1/2 hours. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
