Angus Beef Standing Prime Rib Roast
D'Artagnan | Yield: 6-7
Little embellishment is needed for this gorgeous standing rib roast – just salt, pepper, and a very hot oven. Starting the roast at a high temperature will create a beautiful crust which will add tremendous flavor and seal in the juices. Cooked to medium-rare, this Angus prime rib is melt-in-your-mouth tender.
