“When you buy a propane tank, you unlock a world of culinary possibilities.” It’s a phrase you’ve likely seen right here on our website a number of times. It’s the truth! When you buy your first propane grill, you want to find new recipes and get the hang of things. Once that’s out of the way, you’ve developed a new appreciation for flavor profiles and it’s fun to experiment with making dishes that you’ve made in the oven for years on your grill instead.

There’s no better time of the year to do a bit of experimenting with your grill than the holiday season. It allows you to think outside of the box a little bit and supply your friends and family with delicious foods that might even become a new holiday tradition. That’s why in today’s post we’d like to share a recipe for a holiday classic with a twist. Therefore, without further ado, we proudly present the perfect recipe for…

Grilled Prime Rib

You gained plenty of experience with grilling steaks over the summer and now it’s time to put your skills to the test. “Is there anything more impressive and luxurious than a big juicy standing prime rib roast?” the Huffington Post asks. The answer, of course, is that no, there is not. They go on to note that “it’s easy to make outdoors and it definitely tastes better” and we have to say that we are in full agreement.

An impressive and luxurious prime rib sounds like the perfect thing to serve dinner guests at your next holiday get together. It’s the perfect chance to invite a few friends over and treat them to something truly special!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • An eight pound standing beef rib roast
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil

Just a few simple ingredients is all you need to make the most of this delightful dish. It’s all about how you prepare this prime rib and what you serve as your side dish that will help to make this meal truly special. You’ll start by patting your roast with paper towels and letting it sit for an hour or so at room temperature. Once the hour is up, cover it generously with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper.

Get Your Grill Ready

Preheat half of your grill’s burners to high heat and the other to medium-low. Cook over indirect heat for 20 minutes to half an hour at a time. You will likely end up grilling for a total time of anywhere between two and three hours depending on how hot your grill is and how done you like you prime rib to be. Experts suggest serving your dish medium rare, but at the end of the day, it’s entirely up to you how you’d like to enjoy your prime rib.

When everything is cooked to your liking, bring your roast inside and set it on a cutting board. Tent a bit of tin foil over the top and let your prime rib roast rest for fifteen minutes so that all juices can be adequately reabsorbed throughout. Slice your roast into pieces and serve with your favorite side dish. That’s all there is to it!

A Few Tips

Don’t be afraid to really do your research on how to grill a prime rib roast. There are a number of different methods out there and learning as much as you can is certainly never a bad idea. The previously mentioned article from The Huffington Post suggests utilizing a boneless roast and adding wood chips to give a smokey taste.

Our suggestion is to head to your local butcher shop and let them know your plans. Your butcher should be able to help steer you in the right direction and can ensure that you get the right prime rib roast for your needs–plus it’s just a good idea to work with a local butcher instead of a chain grocery store if you have the option.

At the end of the day, whatever you choose, you’ll be left with some truly delectable prime rib that’s sure to put a smile on the face of every guest who visits your home. Choose a few sides and you have a recipe for an unforgettable night where everyone will be talking about just how great the food was. This time of year is all about spending time with friends and loved ones, so making the most of your time with an incredible meal is certainly never a bad idea.
