Prime rib roast and Yorkshire puddings is such a treat and I just love it. We usually only enjoy prime rib roast once around the holidays (Christmas Eve dinner or New Year’s Eve dinner) or for a special treat out at a restaurant somewhere fancy.
I had never made prime rib roast at home until recently when I was working on a photoshoot for a client, and I just fell in love with how decadent and amazing it was, so I just had to make this amazing prime rib roast and Yorkshire puddings recipe to share with you!!
It’s actually pretty easy to make a rib roast and Yorkshire puddings at home!
Why Yorkshire puddings with prime rib roast? Well, when Nick and I went on a trip years ago to London, we had rib roast with Yorkshire puddings, so ever since then, I always associate a rib roast with Yorkshire puddings!
With a prime rib, it’s all about the proper temperature. Rib roasts can tend to be expensive (how expensive is a rib roast you might ask? They’re usually about $13-18 per pound, so a 6-10 lb prime rib roast usually runs you about $100) so, be sure to have your meat thermometer on hand to get the temperature just right. I like to cook mine to medium rare so it’s tender and juicy and oh-so-delicious.
The trick to prime rib is taking it out of the oven about 10 degrees lower than your ideal doneness, and then letting it rest and rise to the temperature you desire. For a medium-rare prime rib, you ideally want to take your prime rib roast out of the oven when it is at 110-115 degrees, and then let it come up to 125-130 degrees for a medium rare cook!
What is better than a perfect cut of meat? Garlic and butter of course. I made an easy garlic butter to smear all over this roast. With those flavors, you can’t go wrong. I prepared this rib roast just like I did with my easy Thanksgiving turkey recipe!
Can you think of anything better to go alongside a prime rib roast than Yorkshire puddings? I know this all sounds very English, but Yorkshire puddings are so very easy to make that I had to share!
You’re simply mixing ingredients, and baking them in fat from the meat!
Have you ever traveled to London? While I was there, I learned that they do something called a Sunday Roast at restaurants. The restaurants will change their menus on Sundays and only serve roasts and yorkshire puddings. It is so glorious – I loved the idea, and have been making the roast and yorkshire pudding combination ever since then!
If you’re looking for a decadent and fancy meal that’s super tasty, look no further than this rib roast and Yorkshire pudding recipe! I, for one will definitely be making this for Christmas eve dinner!
