  • 12 lb prime rib roast
  • 2 tablespoons Paula Deen's House Seasoning
  • 2 cups beef stock, or canned broth
  • sprig fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons Paula Deen Merlot Wine Steak Sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 425°.


Rub the roast with the Paula Deen House Seasoning. In a roasting pan, place the roast, fat side up, so the ribs act as a rack. Roast for 30 minutes and reduce heat to 350°. Continue to roast for 2 hours or until the internal temperature on a meat thermometer registers your desired doneness. Transfer to platter and let rest for 15 minutes.


While roast is resting, prepare pan sauce. Skim off the fat from the pan drippings. place the roasting pan over medium heat and add the stock and thyme. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.


Whisk in the Paula Deen Merlot Wine Steak Sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm alongside the prime rib roast.


Note: Medium rare 140°, Medium 150°, Well Done 160°.

Hi Peggy, Tha

Hi Peggy,

Thank you for your comment! Feel free to substitute your favorite steak sauce whenever this is called for. There are red wine steak sauces available from other brands at many grocery stores. Happy cooking!

Only rating this

Only rating this a one pan because this is one of several recipes that calls for "Paula Deen's Merlot Wine Steak Sauce". Sounds great - where do you get it and how accessible is it?

I am not apt to try recipes that call for ingredients that I can't get.
Is it possible that an alternative ingredient be suggested?
