  1. Very good recipe, gary Lange. My husband likes his prime rib a little more well done that usual, so my cooking time was more like 3 hours and 20 minutes. But it was super delicious and remained quite moist despite the extra cooking time. Made for the Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef event.
  2. This is so good just made it family loves it! Thanks Gary
  3. I used this recipe for Christmas Day this year and it came out WONDERFUL I threw a dash of Chayenne pepper with the seasoning salt for a little kick and it was great.
  4. Great recipe! The cut of meat was nothing special, but it turned out perfect. I followed the directions exactly (was a 5.5 lb roast). The only thing I may change next time is to cook it to 135 degrees and let it heat up to 140 under the tent.
  5. I made this for Easter dinner and it was fantastic. I added beef stock to the bottom of my roasting pan while cooking to make a nice gravy. Very simple, not overpowering with the onions and garlic. I will be making this again. Thanks Gary!
