Holiday Dinner Recipes:

Homemade Grass Fed Prime Rib Roast with Herbs and Spices

Prime Rib Roast

This prime rib recipe is cooked on your grill.  It’s perfect for your holiday dinner and it still gives that BBQ’d taste.


1 Whole Prime Rib Roast

6-8 Cloves of Garlic

4 Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary

2 Tablespoons of Black Pepper

2 Tablespoons of Dried Rosemary

2 Tablespoons of Sea Salt

2 Tablespoons of Paprika


  1. Prepare your grill by placing a  dripping pan under where the roast will be.  Put the grill temperature at about 375 degrees F.  Periodically add water to the pan to keep the drippings from burning away (if you’re looking to make gravy).
  2. Use a sharp paring knife to make a series of 1/2 inch deep holes across the roast.  Place these holes about once every two inches.
  3. Insert garlic slivers into every other hole and a leaf or rosemary in the rest.
  4. Combine the black pepper, dried rosemary, salt, and paprika and rub over the surface of the prime rib.
  5. Place the roast on a well-oiled grate over your dripping pan.  Cook for about 12 to 14 minutes per pound or prime rib.
  6. When the meat reaches 115 to 125 degrees, remove it from the grill and place it on a platter.  Cover the meat with foil and it will continue cooking.  Let rest for at least 15 minutes.

1 Pork Crown Roast


1/4 Cup Gin, 1/4 Cup oregano leaves, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, 1.5 teaspoons sea salt, 1 teaspoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 small shallot, 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice and zest, 1.5 cups of chicken broth, 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon of white wine, 6-8 peppercorns, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, cornstarch, and water


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in medium bowl.
  2. Place roast in a resealable plastic bag and pour marinade ingredients into the bag.  Seal the bag and refrigerate (meat side on bottom) for 4-6 hours.

  4. Preheat your grill over medium-high heat.  Remove the roast from the bag and wrap each bone with aluminum foil.  Place the roast on the grill and cook over indirect heat for 2-2.5 hours.
  5. Towards the last 40 minutes of the grilling, add your glaze continuously.
