Every year at Christmas my family has Prime Rib for dinner. I get tired of turkey and it’s nice to change it up. I’ve tried several different cooking methods but this one is by far the easiest and always returns amazing results. I’m not sure where the recipe originated, but it’s pretty easy and straight forward and the one I’ve used for years.
I was fortunate enough to receive an amazing Bone In Prime Rib and some Jumbo Scallops from Certified Steak and Seafood. As you can see the size is perfect for your average family and the cut is gorgeous. It was packed well and shipped overnight to ensure freshness. When I opened the package, I was definitely impressed and excited to start cooking! As you can see the scallops were massive and how perfectly they would go with the prime rib! As if that wasn’t enough, we received a cheesecake sampler to top it all off – oh my food coma here I come!
Just a little bit about Certified Steak and Seafood – they are a purveyor of the finest meats and seafood available. Their commitment to customers is simple: Offer the finest product at a reasonable cost and support the customer before, during, and after the sale with the highest quality care in our industry. And let me tell you, everything we received was absolutely of the finest quality which is pretty evident in the photos. I think this is awesome for special occasions when you want nothing but the best or to send to a hard to buy for someone as a delicous gift. Now for my super easy, perfect prime rib recipe — enjoy!

I’ve never tried cooking prime rib before as I didn’t really know how to cook it, it looks delicious though, next time it’s on sale I’ll have to try remember to pick one up!
