How to cook prime rib on a budget: Great steak

Delicious prime rib is such an enjoyable meat main dish. This hub will discuss how to spend less when cooking delicious prime rib at home as opposed to paying a lot more for prime rib that is prepared for you at a restaurant.

  • This recipe hub also contains an easy to follow and delicious prime rib recipe as well as food photos of the cooked prime rib.
  • When it comes to the most special cuts of beef steak including filet mignon, top sirloin and prime rib, the prime rib has always been my favorite.

Prime rib is often featured as a specialty that can be enjoyed in various restaurants including Chop House, Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn and Texas Lonestar restaurant.

Don't you just love to eat a great steak that is well prepared? This top of the line cut of meat is pricey even in more budget friendly restaurants, typically costing around $25 for a 16 oz steak or $20 for a 12 oz steak.

Budget friendly prime rib

It is only recently, in the past year or so that I became ambitious and daring enough to try cooking my favorite meat, prime rib at home. This was one of the dishes that I cooked last Christmas and it turned out to not be such a delicate operation after all as I had previously suspected it would be. In fact, cooking delicious prime rib is easy as pie!

I was delighted to find this beef, prime rib meat for sale, raw in the meat section of my local Food Lion supermarket and priced to move for the holidays. A large cut of prime rib meat, around 5 pounds cost just $18. I had to grab it.

Simple recipe for prime rib

When it came to cooking the prime rib, I kept things very simple. The packaging of the meat you buy might offer suggestions and a starting off point such as telling you how long the meat needs to cook.

I looked to recipes on-line at sites such as allrecipes.com to form a template and give me ideas to make a recipe my own.

I loved the idea of garlic encrusted prime rib that kept coming up. I decided to encrust my prime rib with a generous portion of minced garlic as well. Below is my complete recipe. (Please note that while many prefer rare and medium rare meat, this recipe is for my own preference - well done.)

Prime rib recipe

1. Remove raw prime rib from all packaging and rinse in cold water.

2. Place the prime rib in a deep foil lined baking pan.

3. Rub the meat generously with a teaspoon each of the following powdered spices:

  • black pepper
  • garlic
  • oregano
  • salt
  • paprika

4. Additionally spread a tablespoon of fresh minced garlic on the side and top of the meat

5. Add 1 cup of water to the pan.

6. Place the pan in a preheated oven at a broiling 450 degrees.

7. After the first 15 minutes of cooking time, reduce the heat to 375 degrees.

8. Allow the meat to cook for 25 minutes per pound of meat. This might amount to over 2 and nearing 3 hours of cooking time depending on the weight of your cut of meat.

9. This meat will be very tender and moist. Serve and enjoy.

(If you would prefer not to have a seared top, cover the pan with foil throughout the cooking process.)

Enjoy your holidays and keep your tummy happy with delicious food!
