An alternative to turkey is this wonderful prime rib roast served with potato and rutabaga gratin and L’Etoile steak sauce. A hearty option for any holiday menu, the rib roast is served with L’Etoile’s signature steak sauce and addicting potato and rutabaga gratin on the side.
Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees F.
Mix all ingredients expect the roast and set aside.
Cut the bones away from the roast, but be careful not to cut them all the way off! Rub the spice mix all over the meat and then using butchers string tie the bones back on for roasting. Place your roast into a pan or on a sheet pan with a rack. Roast for 20-25 minutes. Then turn the oven down to 32 degrees F and roast for about 45 minutes to 1 hour more, or until a thermometer reads 120 degrees F.
Remove and let rest for at least 15 minutes.
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Rub the butter all over a 9 by 12 inch casserole dish. Place all the other ingredients in a bowl, coating everything with the cream except the potatoes and rutabaga. Layer the potato/rutabaga into the casserole dish and top with the cream. Bake for one hour or until brown on top. This can be done in advance and warmed in the oven or under the broiler.
Place all the ingredients except the demi glace into a sauce pot. Reduce the wine almost all the way. Add the demi glace and continue cooking until it reduces by 25 percent. Strain and reserve.
