Prime Rib Roast Beef With Fresh Garlic and Rosemary

Prime Rib Roast Beef With Fresh Garlic and Rosemary

I know this is really expensive and this may be beyond some budgets. However, once in a while on special occasions this recipe you should at least try to do. There is no better time to do this recipe then on Shabbat. Shabbat is the most important day of any day of the year. The command to remember the Sabbath and to keep it Holy was given more times in the Torah than any other command. So do it! This is your day Bnei Israel.

Prime Rib Roast Beef With Fresh Garlic and Rosemary


1 (5 lb.) Kosher Beef Rib Roast with the bone
Kosher Salt and freshly cracked Black Pepper to taste
1 tbs. fresh Rosemary chopped
1 tbs., fresh Basil, chopped
2 tbs. Garlic Powder
1 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup Red Wine
12 cloves Garlic (1 head of garlic) crushed and minced


In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the roast. Whisk together. Marinade the roast overnight in a large Ziplock plastic bag, turning a couple of times during the evening.

Remove the roast from the refrigerator and allow the roast to stand at room temperature for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 250 degree F.

Score roast in 10 random spots. Rub the roast with the marinade seasoning mix. Place roast on a large sheet of aluminum foil. Wrap the roast several times in the foil making certain that it is completely sealed with the marinade. Place the roast on a rack in the pan with the fat side up.

Roast for 4 hours with the aluminum foil on the roast. Remove the aluminum foil and continue to roast for another hour. This will brown the surface of the roast. Remover from the oven and allow the roast to rest for about 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with a green vegetable, salad, baked potato, some fish and of course Challah on normal days and Matzo during the Passover week.

Scrub the kids until they shine, put on a pretty dress and make this evening really special. Light and say a Blessing over a couple of Candles, give the Blessing over some Kosher Israeli Wine and Bless the Challah or Matzo and don’t forget to Bless your children. This whole day is really about you and them. Remember the Sabbath and Keep it Holy. Shabbat Shalom!
