Ingredients

For the salsa verde:

  • 1 Cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons capers, rinsed
  • 3 Tablespoons cornichon pickles, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 shallot, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch Italian flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco Green Jalapeño Sauce

For the roast and potatoes:

  • 1 six-pound boneless prime rib roast
  • 2 1/2 red bliss potatoes, halved
  • 5 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 5 Teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper, divided

Directions

For the salsa verde:

In a blender, combine all ingredients and puree until smooth. Adjust Tabasco Green Jalapeño Sauce as needed.

 

For the roast and potatoes:

Allow the roast sit at room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a large roasting pan, add potatoes and drizzle with 3 tablespoons oil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; toss to combine. Place roasting rack on top of potatoes.

Season roast with 3 teaspoons salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper.

In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium high heat. Once hot, add roast and cook 5 to 7 minutes, until meat is golden brown at the bottom. Turn roast and sear an additional 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and place roast on the roasting rack above the potatoes.

Place roasting pan in the oven and roast 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the internal temperature is 125 degrees F. Remove from oven and place roasting rack above a cutting board; let the roast rest at room temperature for 20-30 minutes.

Increase oven to 400 degrees F.

Gently toss potatoes to combine with any meat drippings. Place in the oven and roast 5 to 10 minutes until tender and golden brown. 

To serve, place potatoes on a platter and thinly slice roast. Serve with salsa verde on the side.

Prime Rib Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Prime Rib Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
