From the Reissue of The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook: Roast Prime Rib of Beef with Rich Pan Sauce

By Paula Deen


12-pound prime rib roast

2 tablespoons Paula Deen House Seasoning

2 cups beef stock (or canned beef broth)

1 sprig fresh thyme (or ½ teaspoon dried thyme)

2 tablespoons Paula Deen Whiskey Wine Steak Sauce

Salt and black pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 425 °F. Rub roast with House Seasoning. Place roast in a roasting pan, fat side up, so ribs act as rack. Roast for 30 minutes; reduce heat to 350 °F. Continue to roast for 2 hours, or until internal temperature on meat thermometer registers your desired doneness. Transfer to a platter and let rest for 15 minutes. While roast is resting, prepare pan sauce. Skim off fat from pan drippings. Place roasting pan over medium heat and add beef stock and thyme. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Whisk in steak sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm alongside prime rib roast.

Note: A kitchen thermometer indicates doneness: 115 °F to 120 °F degrees is rare, 130 °F to 135 °F is medium rare, 140 °F to 145 °F is medium, and 160 °F is well done.Serves 6

Paula Deen - As a young girl growing up in Albany, Georgia, Paula Deen never dreamed she would become an American icon. As a young mother, Paula was living the American dream — married to her high school sweetheart and raising two adorable boys — when tragedy struck. Her parents died, her marriage failed and she began a prolonged battle with agoraphobia. With her boys in their teens and her family near homelessness, Paula took her last $200, reached deep inside her soul and started The Bag Lady, a home-based catering company that marked the start of Deen's professional cooking career. With sons Jamie and Bobby delivering lunch-and-love-in-a-bag, beginning in June 1989, Paula turned her life around by sharing what she knew best, traditional Southern cooking.
