Prime Rib Roast Rub – ala Martha Stewart

28 11 2010

Mom found this incredible prime rib roast rub by Martha Stewart online… It really added to the flavor and richness of this amazing cut of meat.

Note:  Allow the rub to stay on the meat for at least 24 hours.

* 15 dried bay leaves, crumbled

* 1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh sage leaves, plus several whole leaves for garnish

* 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

* Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

* 1/3 cup finely grated orange zest (about 2-3 oranges)

* For roast – 1 three-rib prime rib of beef (about 7 lbs), trimmed

In a small bowl, stir together crumbled bay leaves, sage, olive oil, 1 1/2 tsp salt and the orange zest.  Season with pepper.  Rub the herb mixture all over the beef, coating evenly.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.  About 2 hours before you plan to cook the beef, remove it from the fridge.  Place beef, fat side-up, in a roasting pan and allow it to come to room temperature.

For cooking your prime rib, please refer to Roxanne’s Prime Rib Roast 101.

Smile – you’ve got an AMAZING cut of beef you’re about to cook to rich deliciousness! :)
