A Celebration Dinner

 This is my 100th Post

so to celebrate, I made a fabulous dinner---

Prime Rib
Braised Green Beans & Shallots
Rosemary Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

(and thought that I would share)

Prime Rib with Horseradish Sour Cream Sauce

5 pound standing prime rib roast


3 tablespoons chopped rosemary
2 tablespoons chopped roasted garlic
3 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix marinade ingredients together and rub onto the roast.  Let sit for 2-4 hours.  Pre-heat the grill to 325 degrees.  Place the roast on the rotisserie attachment.  Once on the grill, the roast will cook for approximately 110 minutes  (20 minutes a pound for medium-rare).

After 1 hour of cooking

Really, there is nothing to do, just let the grill and the rotisserie attachment do all of the work.  The marinade is thick enough that it remains on the roast and makes a nice crust.  Once you remove the roast from the rotisserie allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing.

Horseradish Sour Cream Sauce

1 cup light sour cream
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate.  

Braised Green Beans and Shallots

1 pound green beans
1 large shallot
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Slice the shallot thinly and place in a large pan with the green beans.  Add olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Mix well.

Place mixture over low heat for approximately 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes.

Rosemary Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

1 pound fingerling and baby red potatoes
3 tablespoons chopped rosemary
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Wash and cut potatoes in half.  Place in a baking dish.  Add rosemary, olive oil, salt, and pepper and combine.  Bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender.  Remove from oven and sprinkle the cheese on the potatoes.   Return the baking dish to the oven and continue to cook for approximately 10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted and browned.

I hope that you enjoy the recipes from this dinner.  Also, I would like to say "Thank You" to all of you who follow or subscribe to my blog.  I am so grateful for all of the comments and words of encouragement that all of you provide.  Here's hoping that I will write another 100 posts before year's end.
