prime rib roast beefWe bet most of you served turkey, pig roasts and back ribs during the holidays so we suggest grilling a nice chunk of prime rib for the New Year. Prime rib is equally delectable after all as it is one of the primal cuts of beef in the market. It is usually roasted with its bone in and not really overloaded with a lot of spices because its juice is already flavorful. Also known as the standing rib roast, it is known for its tender meat that features a generous amount of marbling — the fat that’s distinct by its white color, creating a marble-like appearance on the meat. Here’s another lip-smacking recipe by popular celebrity chef Bobby Flay.




* 1 standing rib roast, 6-rib

* garlic cloves

* vegetable oil

* 2 tablespoons dried sage

* 2 tablespoons dried basil

* 2 tablespoons dried thyme

* salt

* black pepper, freshly ground


Cooking Instructions:


1. Take the prime rib out of the fridge an hour before grilling. After the meat has thawed, brush it with the vegetable oil to let it stay moist. The oil will also prevent the roast from sticking to the grill grates.


2. Combine the salt, ground black pepper, dried thyme, dried basil and dried sage in a bowl. Mix them thoroughly to evenly distribute the flavors. When you’re done, apply the mixture on the prime rib ensuring that all areas are covered.


3. Using a sharp knife, make slits or cuts on the meat. Insert the garlic cloves in these openings to make the roast more flavorful.


4. Prepare your La Caja China. Put the drip tray, ash pan and charcoal grid into place. Place your charcoals on the grid and light them all up. Wait until they show a bright orange color.


5. When the coals are ready for grilling, place the prime rib bone-side down on the La Caja China rack. Insert a wired thermometer into the meat to monitor its doneness. Cover the box with the lid and wait until the thermometer display shows your preferred temp.


6. If you want the rib medium rare, it will probably take about 2 to 2 ½ hours to grill. Prime rib can be cooked rare (125 F), medium rare (135 F), medium (140 F) or well-done (145+ F).


7. When your roast is done, remove it from the grill and let it cool down for about 10 minutes before carving. This will allow the juices to flow back into the meat. Serve with your favorite side dishes!
