Prime Rib for Two
How do you transform this most luxurious of roasts from a special- occasion feast into an outstanding (and easy) dinner for two?
Why This Recipe Works
Juicy, ultra-tender prime rib is the ultimate roast beef. To cut its size to suit two, we opted for a 1 1/2-pound, 1 1/2-inch-thick bone-in rib-eye steak. We seared our steak in a hot skillet to develop a crust and then finished cooking it gently in a low 200-degree oven to ensure a perfect medium-rare. While the steak roasted away, we used the fond in the skillet to build a flavorful pan sauce with red wine and beef broth, adding a touch of ketchup.
