Zack from Texas Roadhouse demonstrates how to marinate a prime rib to enhance the juicy and flavorful quality of the meat prior to cooking.


The final quality of a home cooked prime rib partially depends on the marinating time, low cooking temperature and the initial quality of the meat selected. Home chefs should opt for a higher quality prime rib loin for better results. Visiting a specialized meat market, or higher-end grocery store may offer a choicer selection and better cuts of meat. This prime rib recipe can be easily modified based on seasoning preferences and marinade choices. The dish is best served along with warm sides, yeast rolls and a simple salad. Reheating of leftovers should be done in an oven for best results. Any reheating will generally cook the meat to the next degree of doneness(medium to medium-well for example).
