Raw prime rib with fresh herbs
The Biggest Mistake You're Making When Seasoning Prime Rib
The biggest mistake you can make with prime rib is to rush the seasoning process. This fine cut needs plenty of salt, but also more time for the salt to penetrate it.
Allow at least two hours for your prime rib to lose the chill from the refrigerator, and season it generously with salt as soon as you sit it out at room temperature.
Salt your prime rib at least 45 minutes before cooking, or salt it the night before and leave it uncovered in the fridge to allow the salt to draw out some of the meat's moisture.
This will ensure a perfectly cooked prime rib and bites that are guaranteed to be full of flavor. Serve it with an equally decadent side like potatoes au gratin.
