When you’re in the mood for delicious food, you have to be willing to stretch your budget along with your belt. A good cut of prime rib roast won’t be near as decadent as these most expensive meals in the world. However, in most eateries, prime rib still sits atop the menu in terms of price.
If you’d rather forgo that and cook your prime rib at home, never fear. Our guide will show you several delicious prime rib sauces that you can use to top or dip your next roast.
Creamy Horseradish Sauce
Anywhere that you can get roast beef, you can find a horseradish sauce. Something about this creamy and spicy combination really balances out the heaviness of a prime rib roast better than most condiments.
To make your own, simply use prepared (ie pickled) horseradish, sour cream, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, chives, salt, and pepper. Whisk the ingredients until you get a smooth texture, and you’re good to go.
Au Jus Serious?
If you want to use the remains from roasting your beefy goodness, then au jus is the prime rib dipping sauce for you! All you need to bring out its flavor is a touch of Worcestershire sauce, red wine, and the juice/drippings from your roast beef or prime rib. Stir the ingredients until well-combined while heating over low heat until it simmers.
Go With Remoulade for a Kick
Not the biggest fan of horseradish, but still craving some cream and spice? Then, you’ll want to go with a Louisiana classic and stir up a remoulade sauce. This prime rib sauce is super easy to make, especially since you can use ingredients you already have on hand.
Stir a cup of mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons each of spicy mustard and ketchup, a tablespoon each of lemon juice and hot sauce together. Then mix in 3 teaspoons of Creole seasoning along with half a teaspoon each of minced garlic and black pepper for that classic Cajun kick!
The popularity of the cheeseburger should tell you how good the combination of beef and cheese can be. So, it should come as no surprise that cheese-based sauces work well for roast beef and prime rib as well. Whether you go for something hefty like a beer cheese mix, or a more Italian-based parmesan and garlic sauce, you can’t go wrong with a cheese sauce.
What About the Barbeque?
While you can certainly make or use a barbeque sauce for a prime rib roast, you’ll most often see it used for spare ribs or pork. So, when buying ribs online, make sure that you know the right kind that you need for your recipe.
