Having said that I decided to make a prime rib on New Years Eve for dinner. A friend, we shall call him D, was coming over and apparently prime rib is his steak of choice. So to say that I was a tad nervous is an understatement. I'd never cooked this kind of steak before. In fact, my experience with cooking steak was next to nothing.
The recipe I used was extremely simple. Garlic, Salt, Pepper and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Score. Put it in the oven at 500 degrees for 20 minutes and then cook for 60-75 minutes at 325. Boom. Bam. Done.
Or was it?
So I put the meat thermometer in and all these juices came out. I was like Umm, this isn't right...too much. Or not. Apparently, prime rib is supposed to be like that. Yeah I don't know! So I stuck it back in for 25 minutes. Wrongo. The thickest part was nice and juicy and pink but the rest...not so much. So needless to say it was overcooked. Good. But overcooked. D and Other Chef devoured it so I guess it wasn't that bad!! But all that fat...no thanks. I think I will stick to my filet mignon.
