Texas Roadhouse Prime Rib Recipe

Cooking a delicious prime rib at home might seem intimidating, but with my Texas Roadhouse Prime Rib recipe, I guarantee you’ll be super confident in not time!

You’ll marinate the meat with a blend of black pepper, sugar, garlic, liquid smoke, and soy sauce, giving the roast a rich, smoky flavor.

Marinate the meat for two days to ensure it’s incredibly tender and juicy.

You’ll be cooking the roast at different temperatures to achieve that perfect medium-rare inside.

How to Make Texas Roadhouse Prime Rib Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 Prime Rib Roast (5-6 lbs.)
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 3 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Rosemary (fresh, chopped)
  • 1 tsp Thyme (fresh, chopped)
  • 1 tsp Salt

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1:

Combine the olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, black pepper, rosemary, thyme, and salt in a bowl to create the marinade.

Step 2:

Place the prime rib roast on a wire rack in a large roasting pan.

Step 3:

Pour half of the marinade over the top side of the rib and rub it in thoroughly.

Step 4:

Flip the prime rib over and pour the remaining marinade, making sure to coat evenly.

Step 5:

Cover the roasting pan and refrigerate the marinated prime rib overnight to allow the flavors to meld.

Step 6:

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 7:

Place the marinated prime rib roast in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes until the exterior is browned and seared.

Step 8:

Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and continue cooking for about 1.5 hours or until the internal temperature reaches your desired doneness (medium-rare is about 135 degrees Fahrenheit).

Step 9:

Remove the prime rib from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing to retain its juices.

Tips and Tricks for Making This Recipe

Use Fresh Herbs

Fresh rosemary and thyme will enhance the flavor much better than dried herbs.

Let the Meat Rest

Allowing the prime rib to rest after cooking ensures that the juices redistribute throughout the meat, making it tender and delicious.

Check Doneness with a Thermometer

Always use a meat thermometer to check for desired doneness to avoid overcooking or undercooking the prime rib.

Slice Against the Grain

When cutting the prime rib, slicing against the grain of the meat will result in more tender and easy-to-chew pieces.

Adjust Seasoning to Taste

Feel free to tweak the amounts of salt and pepper based on your personal preferences.

What to Serve with Texas Roadhouse Prime Rib

Classic Mashed Potatoes

You can’t go wrong with a classic side of mashed potatoes!

Creamy, buttery, and perfect for soaking up the juices from the prime rib.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

A slightly unexpected but delicious side, roasted Brussels sprouts with crispy bacon will add a perfect crunch.

The savory flavor of bacon enhances the prime rib experience.

Garlic Green Beans

Garlic green beans are a crisp, fresh contrast to the rich flavors of prime rib.

They’re easy to make and bring a bright, vibrant note to the plate.

Truffle Mac and Cheese

A creamy, indulgent option, truffle mac and cheese pairs wonderfully with the juicy prime rib.

The truffle oil adds a unique and sophisticated flavor to your meal.

Honey-Glazed Carrots

For a touch of sweetness, honey-glazed carrots make a wonderful addition.

They are easy to prepare and add a beautiful burst of color to your plate.

Variations and Substitutions

Different Marinades

You can change up the flavors by experimenting with different marinades.

Try a soy-based marinade for an Asian twist.

You might prefer a red wine marinade for richness and depth.

Cooking Methods

If you don’t have an oven, you can use a slow cooker for a tender, fall-apart result.

Alternatively, a smoker adds a unique, delicious flavor to the meat.

Adjusting Doneness

Depending on your preference, you can adjust the cooking time.

For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 130°F.

For well-done, aim for around 160°F.

Herb Variations

Experiment with different herbs like rosemary or thyme to add a fresh, aromatic touch.

You can also use garlic powder and onion powder for a more robust flavor.

How to Store Leftover Texas Roadhouse Prime Rib

Cooling Down

Let your prime rib cool to room temperature before storing.

This prevents condensation and keeps it from becoming soggy.

Wrap It Up

Wrap the leftover prime rib tightly in aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

This helps to maintain its moisture and prevents any air from drying it out.

For extra protection, you can place the wrapped meat in an airtight container.

Refrigerate or Freeze

Place the wrapped prime rib in the refrigerator if you plan to eat it within the next 3-4 days.

For longer storage, freeze it.

Frozen prime rib can last up to 3 months.

Just be sure to label it with the date.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Not Marinating Long Enough

It’s crucial to marinate the prime rib for at least two days to let the flavors soak in fully.

If you don’t marinate long enough, the seasoning won’t penetrate the meat, resulting in a bland taste.

Cooking at the Wrong Temperature

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit first, but reduce it to 325 degrees after placing the roast inside.

Cooking at the wrong temperature can cause the meat to cook unevenly or burn on the outside.

Skipping the Resting Period

After taking the prime rib out of the oven, you should let it rest tented with foil for at least 15 to 20 minutes.

Skipping this step will lead to losing all those savory juices when you slice into it too soon.
