PRIME RIB WITH MUSTARD AND ROSEMARY CRUST
By: Jennifer MacKenzie
With a simple mustard and herb seasoning, the wonderful beefy flavour of prime rib really shines. Searing the roast in a hot oven and then cooking it low and slow does take a little longer but it seals in every drop of juice keeping it melt-in-your-mouth tender. A good meat thermometer is worth the investment to make sure you get an accurate test for doneness. The slow roasting method reduces the quantity of pan drippings so the flavour of the jus relies on good-quality stock. Use homemade stock if you have it or the highest-quality prepared stock available. If you prefer a thickened gravy, stir 2 tbsp (25 mL) all-purpose flour into the onions and cook for a minute before adding the stock.
5 lbs (2.2 kg) beef prime rib premium
½ cup (125 mL) grainy or Dijon mustard
2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh rosemary,
or 2 tsp (10 mL) dried
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) coarsely ground pepper
1 small onion, finely chopped

or ¼ tsp (1 mL) dried
