This makes the best prime rib for even the toughest critics. My husband raises beef cattle so he loves good prime rib and he says this is the best he's ever had--anywhere--even at a restaurant. We like it so much that sometimes I season a regular roast this way but then slow cook it so it stays tender. The amount of seasonings here is for a roast that is around 5-7 lbs.
People rave about this dish and it is one of the easiest things to make. I have made it in the microwave from beginning to end when I was short on time. It tastes the best, though, when you bake it in the oven. It adapts well to different temps of the oven depending on what kind of meat is cooking.
I make these treats for our dogs even though the diabetic one passed on years ago. Our wiener dog starts dancing around the kitchen when my food processor comes out and guards the oven as they bake. Simple to make and a good way to use up the liver from our beef.
A lightened up version (if there can be one) of Ding Dong Cake that I found in Illinois Country Living. My family likes it for a twist on our usual rotation of chocolate desserts. :) Prep time does not include refrigeration although it does not take long since you use instant pudding.
