I have a client who loves to entertain. She was afraid her cooking skills weren’t up to par, so, we joined together and created an easy meal that looks extra fancy. She did an absolutely amazing job with her decor and floral arrangements and the menu was really easy to whip up. She’s now prepped to host anyone and everyone for a great evening.
We started with crab stuffed mushrooms and ended up with some leftover crab dip which was perfect for the veggies to be dipped. Clean ingredients and nobody would ever know it was a healthy appetizer without any junk.
The prime rib, perfectly medium rare every time. If you have a guest who likes a little more done, the end pieces are always delicious. I find prime rib to be incredibly easy. I always ask the butcher to slice the meat away from the bone but keep it attached for flavor.
Perfect Prime Rib
6-7lb prime rib roast cut away from the bone
I use simple seasonings (salt and pepper) but you can stuff it with garlic cloves, rosemary, or coat with garlic salt.
Preheat your oven to 350
Cook the rib for one hour
Turn the oven OFF for one hour and DO NOT OPEN the oven door. (My husbands least favorite part. He knows better but gets me every time trying to look in jokingly)
Turn oven back on to 400 and cook for 30 more minutes. All while not opening the oven. You’ll lose a lot of the heat
Remove the roast from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes
My mouth is watering just thinking about how delicious this meal was. Perfect and easy. We served the prime rib with mashed cauliflower and asparagus, paleo Yorkshire pudding and a lobster tail. Wine, and more wine. Then we topped dinner off with a lemon infused almond cake with blueberry sauce. Incredible.
The Crab Dip is the same that I’ve made on several different occasions and it’s ALWAYS a hit. This time we added it to the mushrooms and then baked it all together for 20 min at 350. Leave me a comment if you try it!
