Prime Rib Perfection

Cooking prime rib in combi ovens

A beautiful prime rib is just the thing to give even the smallest restaurant a big reputation. While this big hunk of wonderful meat might seem intimidating, with the right equipment your top menu item can be sublime every time. Here’s how.

Beautiful Prime Rub Cut


Meat—Use a Choice quality rib roast.

Cut the bone from the roast and then tie it back on with butcher’s twine. This will give you a roast portion for an entree and rib section for an appetizer, as well as beautifully cooked meat.

Score the top of the roast with Xs between the butcher’s twine. Place the rib fat cap up. Rub—And if you know meat you know it is always about the rub! First, drizzle 1/2 cup of Worcester sauce over the roast and rub in. Dust with: Pepper, Garlic Salt, and Thyme

Now, you’re ready to roast!
