DIRECTIONS

  • In a large non-aluminum saucepan or pot, combine the jus ingredients: carbernet, stock, port, peeled garlic cloves, shallot, bay leaves, and dried thyme.
  • Simmer until mixture reduces to 2 cups, about 1 hour.
  • (Note: Cabernet reduction can be prepared 2 days ahead, which gives the flavors time to meld nicely; cool, cover and refrigerate.).
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place the prime rib fat-side-up in a heavy baking pan (13x9x2-inch), and rub it all over with the pressed garlic and 2 teaspoons dried/crushed thyme, then season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Roast in 450 degree oven for 30 minutes, then reduce temperature to 200 degrees F, tent the pan with foil, and continue roasting until a meat thermometer inserted into the center registers a rare 118 degrees F, about 2 1/2 hours (depending on cut and oven).
  • (Alternately, instead of the slow roasting method you can follow what the recipe originally called for: 450 degrees F for 1 hour, tent with foil, then continue until it reads 118 degrees, about 35 minutes.).
  • Transfer the meat to a serving platter, cover loosely with foil, and let stand for 20 minutes.
  • About 5 minutes before serving, pour off all the fat from the roasting pan and place it over medium-high heat.
  • Add the cabernet reduction to the pan and bring it to a boil – make sure to scrape up all the tasty browned bits – and season to taste with salt and pepper; pour the jus into a sauceboat.
  • Garnish the beef serving platter with sprigs of parsley.
  • Carve the beef and serve, passing the jus separately.
