4 pound prime rib (1 pound per person)
- 1/4 cup finely ground dark coffee
- 1 Tbsp. pink Himalayan salt
- 1 Tbsp. ground pepper
- 1 tsp. mustard powder
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
- 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
- 1 tsp. white wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Combine coffee rub ingredients into a small bowl and mix together.
- Rub the spice mixture heavily, all over the entire prime rib.
- Place prime rib into a small roasting pan onto a roasting rack. You don’t want the prime rib sitting directly on the bottom of the pan.
- Place prime rib into the oven and cook at 450 degrees for 30 minutes.
- Combine the horseradish ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to combine, and place in the refrigerator until time to serve.
- Reduce heat down to 325 degrees F. after 30 minutes, then cook for the remaining time as per the package directions (usually about 15 min. per pound)
- Using a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature to ensure it’s cooked to the level you prefer. Typically medium rare = 130-135 degrees, medium = 135-140 degrees, medium well 140-150 degrees and well done 155+ degrees.
- Once the temperature has reached the desired level, remove prime rib from oven and let rest for 20-30 minutes. NOTE: the internal temperature will typically rise about 5 degrees as it rests, so keep that in mind when checking the temperature.
- Slice and serve with homemade horseradish sauce.
