Coffee-Rubbed Prime Rib with Easy Horseradish Sauce



Yield: serves 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour + 10 minutes


for the prime rib:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/2 lbs bone-in prime rib
2 tablespoons coffee grounds
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne
salt and pepper to taste

for the horseradish sauce:
1 1/4 cups sour cream
1 tablespoon chives, diced
dash of Tabasco
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon champagne vinegar
salt and pepper to taste


for the prime rib:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place prime rib in a roasting pan fat and rib side facing down. Let the prime rib come to room temperature for at least an hour before to ensure even cooking. Rub olive oil all over the prime rib. In a bowl, combine coffee, brown sugar, garlic powder, Cayenne, and s&p. Rub the coffee mixture all over the prime rib. Place the prime rib in the oven and roast for about 15 minutes. Then, turn the heat back to 325 degrees to finish cooking. You’ll want to cook the prime rib for every one pound equals 20 minutes, or until a thermometer reaches 120 degrees for medium-rare.
Remove prime rib from oven and set on a wire rack to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. Serve with horseradish along side. Enjoy!

for the horseradish sauce:
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors combine.
