dawncOMG! I tried this recipe this past weekend, and it came out wonderful!! I oversalted it a little, but it was still delicious! My smoke alarm went off. I suggest blowing a fan right at the detector so it doesn't go off. THIS RECIPE IS A KEEPER! Thank you for posting it!10m ago
csg65804Love the reviews and cannot wait to make it but hubbys on TDY & he loves prime rib so want to try it on him for a surprise1y ago
Valerie411used a lamb roast and the timing worked out perfectly!1y ago
hanaqueenThis is my first time making the prime rib, and it is really amazing. Just like other reviews, the center is a little rare to our family, but at least no blood coming out. I will for sure use this recipe again.1y ago
BrokenwheelsOutside of all the smoke in the kitchen for the first 40 minutes, this worked perfectly, dead on medium as planned. I'll have a fan going next time.1y ago
preciousjules16I used this recipe for Christmas dinner. It was perfect. Even made another one a week later and cooked it a little closer to rare for prime rib dip. The way to perfection is having a meat thermometer that sets into the meat while cooking. I used one each time and was able to keep watch on it.2y ago
