Prime Rib Rub

Soaked in Lea and Perrins® Worcestershire sauce, prime rib is rubbed with a mixture of spices for a nice crust. We suggest you cook your prime at 450 degrees F for 30 minutes and finished at 325 degrees F until medium rare in the center (120 degrees). Notes below include a temperature guide to cook it from medium rare to well done. The perfect wine pairing for prime rib is Cabernet Sauvignon.
