The Butcher’s Market offers superb meats in NC, and their prime rib roast is the perfect staple for your holiday meal! Even if you cannot try it this Christmas, they offer it all year.

Want to know a little secret? My mom and I had never cooked prime rib before. GASP! Truthfully, we never really considered it because it seemed intimidating, and we assumed it wasn’t worth the effort.

The Butcher’s Market showed us how wrong we were. Minimal effort is required, especially when you order through them!

BRT: Our New Favorite Acronym

The Butcher’s Market’s prime rib roasts all come BRT, or “bones removed and tied back on.” This allows you to cook the roast with bones still attached, which improves flavor and tenderness, but also easily clip a string to take them off when you’re ready to cut and serve.

It could not be simpler, and we were so happy we didn’t have to struggle to remove the bones ourselves.

Duck Fat, Anyone?

Yet another lesson learned from The Butcher’s Market during this process was that duck fat makes for an amazingly flavorful roast.

Olive oil works great, so don’t sweat it if you don’t have duck fat. However, if you find yourself in one of their stores, we highly recommend picking up a tub of duck fat to spread on the roast for an extra unique final product.

We spread the duck fat over the roast and sprinkled it with The Butcher’s Market house seasoning!

Cooking The Prime Rib Roast

Following the instructions on their website, we allowed the roast to come to room temperature and then placed it in the oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes. This gave it a good sear, but keep an eye on it so it doesn’t get too dark.

We then lowered the temperature to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and continued cooking it for 15 minutes per pound. In our case, this ended up being about an hour and a half.
