Top Review by Jennifer Rosholt

I made this prime rib for Christmas dinner with my husband's family. My father-in-law and brother-in-law said it was one of the best prime ribs they'd tasted. My father-in-law even took the leftovers home! I served it with twice baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, steamed cauliflower in 4 cheese sauce, rolls and dessert. I didn't have the wine on hand, so for the gravy I separated the fat from the roasting pan and added the juices to two packets of Schilling Au Jus, prepared per packet instructions in a saucepan on the stove. I also added some extra herbs from the roast recipe and a little cornstarch for thickening to the saucepan. The resulting gravy was excellent! I will make this recipe again! Thanks!
