    I made this recipe using a rib roast (not the easiest cut to find in Athens)... I used several pearl onions, a couple small carrots, sliced thick, and 2 inch cubes of white potatoes. I marinated the prime rib in about 2/3 cup vinaigrette - added a tbsp brown mustard to the dressing and placed the roast and dressing in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for an hour and a half on each side. This is a great recipe, as it's written; and since it's pretty basic, it lends itself well to variations. The gravy is great - but any gravy you scald is likely to be problematic... I doubt the issue one users family had with the gravy was actually due to the wine. I look forward to seeing what else my favorite OCD patient can come up with. ;) -Thomas Melas

    This review is for the gravy. It turned out to be the perfect accompaniment to turkey meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Since I didn't have any drippings, I used a tablespoon of butter. It was flavorful and rich even without any meat juices.

    I used a 4 lb. bottom round for this recipe and it turned out very nice. My drippings started to burn, so I had to add some water, but that was no problem. Unfortunately, no one in the family liked the gravy with the wine in it, so next time, I'll leave that out. Thanks for posting.
