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.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Let the roast stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before you carve it. This gives the juices time to be reabsorbed and distributed evenly. When you cook a roast, the juices tend to be forced to the center as those near the surface are evaporated by the heat. Resting the roast also allows the meat to firm up a bit, making it easier to carve into thinner slices. Meat gets tougher as it cools on your plate, because the collagen, which has turned to a tender gelatin, thickens. The best way to eliminate that problem is to be sure you serve steak on a warmed or metal plate. After carving a roast, keep it in a warmer or put back in the oven and leave the door ajar.

The two methods used for cooking a roast are dry heat (without liquid) or moist heat (with liquid). When the meat is covered, steam is trapped in the pan. Many cooks use this method to prevent roasts from drying out. Dry heat (with the lid off) will brown the outside of the roast, and if you wish, you can baste it every15 minutes to provide the desired moisture. If you go the moist heat route, lower the temperature by 25 degrees, and make sure to turn the roast or cook it on a rack so it’s underside won’t get mushy.

Today’s Menu: Prime Rib, Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Brown Gravy, Green Beans, and Rustic French Bread

Happy Easter everyone! I hope yours was relaxing and delicious as ours was. We had a Prime Rib Roast that was slowed roasted at 250 degrees until the roast read 120 degrees. It came out tender and delicious! The ends were about medium rare while the middle was rare. We used the used the juices and tidbits at the bottom of the roasting pan to pour back over meat after we sliced it making just that more juicy. Plenty of leftovers too which will make some primo prime rib sandwiches!

For sides we had Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes that we topped with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy. We also had Green Beans and baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free. Happy Easter all!

I scrambled one Egg for each Sandwich seasoning it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I folded the Egg and and served it on an Healthy Life Whiole Grain English Muffin and added thin slices of Prime Rib with a dab of Woeber’s Horse Radish Mustard. A great light Breakfast to start a beautiful day!
