Need an idea for Christmas Dinner? How about a juicy flavorful Standing Rib Roast Recipe with a crusty exterior and pink center?
Christmas dinner means a lot of things to a lot of people.
To us, Christmas dinner is always something we don’t have very often throughout the year. Something that takes care in preparation. Something that makes all who partake feel special.
The kids usually want a rich and comforting dish like lasagna or gnocchi, but Lt. Dan and I, we want lobster or beef.
Good beef…. really good beef.
My Standing Rib Roast Recipe is a perfect meal for Christmas.
The crispy exterior is bold and salty with an herb and whole grain mustard crust. While the interior stays pink and juicy with a rich beefy flavor.
Standing Rib Roast is essentially a large cut of bone-in rib eye steak, so the fat is marbled throughout, creating an ultra luxurious taste and texture.
When you buy a standing rib roast at the butcher, sometimes they have already trimmed it for you so the bones stick out the top. If not, you can cook as-is or trim it yourself. It’s very easy.
If you have a friendly butcher, you can ask him/her to trim it for you as well.
Then rub it down with a zesty concoction made of whole grain mustard, herbs, and bacon grease and roast it in the oven.
The reason I consider this method “fool-proof” is that I leave an oven-safe thermometer in the center of the roast. Once it reaches 125 degrees F, remove it from the oven and allow it to rest so the juices redistribute.
Using a leave-in meat thermometer eliminates the chance of over cooking this Standing Rib Roast Recipe.
It also helps to place the standing rib roast in a hot oven so the exterior starts to form a crust, but then lower the heat so it cooks slowly and evenly for a perfect pink every time.
Our Standing Rib Roast Recipe is juicy, pink, and packed with flavor. Just right for holiday meals.
