Today’s Special Christmas Menu: Prime Rib w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Cheddar Bay Biscuits



Christmas 2013 Prime Rib 004

Let me start by saying “Merry Christmas” to everyone! In the past we always had a huge family gathering for Christmas Dinner but the today as the last couple of Christmas Dinner it’s just been Mom and Dad and myself. It’s been a quiet relaxing Christmas. Another cold one out but not as bad as yesterday, no wind today made the difference. For dinner it was a feast! I prepared a Prime Rib w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Cheddar Bay Biscuits.




I had purchased a Seasoned Half  Beef Ribeye for Prime Rib Roast at a local GFS Market in nearby Fairfield a while back and had it in the freezer. Laid it out in the fridge yesterday to thaw so it was ready for the oven today. Nice size one, 7.750 lbs. of nothing but Prime Rib! So easy to prepare, just preheated the oven at 250 degrees. Then placed the roast in a medium size roasting pan with a rack in it. Sprayed the rack with Pam Spray and added a 1/4″ of water to the pan. Then placed the Roast on the rack and basted it in its own juices that were in the bag. Placed it in the oven for about 2 1/2 hours, til a thermometer read 120 degrees, perfect medium rare! As it was roasting I would baste it from time to time with the juice. We buy our Prime Rib from GFS every year and the quality is always spot on. Tender, moist, and just bursting with flavor! This one was so tender you could cut it with your fork. Plus always the good thing, lots of leftovers for some incredible Prime Rib Sandwiches!




Prime Rib as far as I’m concerned is a meal in its self but Mom and Dad love the side dishes. So for one side I heated up our favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. These are so good and saves so much time than having to peel, cook and mashed potatoes! Then I also heated a jar of the Canned Green Beans we had Canned earlier this year. Nothing like fresh Green Beans in the Winter! As if that’s not enough my dad wanted some Corn on the Cob so I boiled some Mini Ears of Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. I used the juice of the Prime Rib when it was done for some Gravy and I baked some Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits. First time I had baked this one. Just mixed the Packet of Biscuit with water and grated Cheddar Cheese. Mixed it into a dough and made it into balls on to a baking sheet. Baked at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. When ready I basted them with a Garlic Butter Sauce while they were still hot. Tasted just like what you get at the Red Lobster! For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.
