That's usually what happened when I make it but that's because my family is afraid of red meat so that's what they want . Oven cooking is not the easiest but still can produce a fine meal either way.

Re: Prime Rib Advice

TiVo recorded the Alton Brown Rib roast episode, which is pretty much the same thing.

Anyhow, he also "dry aged" his roast for 2 days in the 'fridge buy placing it in a Rubbermaid box with holes in it. I was thinking on just using a sheet pan and placing it at the bottom of the 'fridge.

Has anybody dry aged like this? Are there things to be concerned about? I don't want to spoil what I assume will be a pretty expensive hunk of meat.

Re: Prime Rib Advice

I just saw a clip from Food Network's "Dear Food Network" with somebody asking this exact question. Guy showed how to dry age your own beef in the fridge. Esentially wrap it in cheese cloth and stick it in the fridge. He then changed out the cloth every 24 hours as it had filled with moisture from the meat. He then cut off some of the fat and edges of the meet before cooking.

Re: Prime Rib Advice

I saw the guy thing, but he was aging for a week to 10 days. We are getting our rib tonight, so I wasn't sure if it would be worth aging (until Christmas day) but Alton said (in the above mentioned show) that even 24 hours will be an improvement.

Re: Prime Rib Advice

It turned out well. My father-in-law was sufficiently happy with it as well.

My plating leaves a bit to be desired!

The only things I would do differently next time is make fewer/less side dishes, since only the rib got eaten. The other thing is not make the whipping cream horseradish sauce from Lawreys. It wasn't bat, but some people really couldn't get passed the texture difference from the standard sour cream base.
