4 Ways of Cooking a Prime Rib

by Waverly Wilde

Instead of having to wait to eat prime rib for only special family occasions, why not learn how to make one for National Prime Rib Day on April 27? There are multiple ways to cook a prime rib, so find the one that suits your style the best and give it a go!

1. The Classic Prime Rib

Cooking a classic prime rib isn’t a difficult task, but it’s important to follow the steps as best as you can. For example, about 2 hours before you start cooking, you’ll want to take your prime rib out of the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature. This helps take the chill off your ribs and ensures a more even cooking job. Also, make sure to season it before placing it in the oven, that way the seasonings will absorb into the meat while it cooks.

Be sure to follow these instructions closely so that when you’re done cooking and dipping your prime rib in a little horseradish, the wait will have been worth every mouth-watering bite.

2. Garlic Butter Prime Rib

If you’re looking for a prime rib with a little more flavor than your average one, this garlic butter recipe is just for you! 

While this dish is almost identical to the previous, classic prime rib recipe, the main difference is in the sauce. It calls for A LOT of garlic butter to lather all over your prime rib before cooking. You’ll also want to lay your prime rib in a skillet atop a couple of chopped garlic halves on your cooktop before cooking it in the oven to add even more flavor to your dish.

Don’t be afraid to add more herbs to the mix, such as herbes de Provence.


3. Slow Cooker Prime Rib

For all those people who hate to cook, but love the ease of a good slow cooker recipe, look no further! This recipe requires little preparation other than to make sure your prime rib has completely defrosted. Leave in your fridge for 24-48 hours, depending on the size of your ribs to ensure that there are no frozen bits.

After rubbing your prime rib with the marinade that you want, you’ll let it slow cook for about 4 hours on low. It will smell so good, it’ll be hard to wait!

4. Leftover Prime Rib Pasta

Just like eating leftover pizza, leftover prime rib is arguably better than regular prime rib. It’s one of the many mysteries of the world, but one we’re willing to experiment with! Try out this leftover prime rib pasta that takes previously cooked prime rib, sauteed with mushrooms, red wine, Worcestershire sauce, and more, and lay over a bed of pasta. This recipe calls for penne pasta, but any noodle of your choice will do! 

Top your finished product with a dash (or handful -- we aren’t judging) of parmesan, to really bring home the Italian flavor.
