Encrusted Prime Rib


  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 hours 45 minutes

8 to 10 servings


3 to 4 pound beef rib roast, boneless

1 tablespoon Spice Islands® Whole Allspice

2 tablespoons Spice Islands® Cracked Black Pepper

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Rosemary

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Oregano

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Thyme

1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Coriander

1 teaspoon coarse salt

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons butter, softened


3 tablespoons heavy cream

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 cup beef broth

1/4 cup pan dripping (from roast)

1 tablespoon minced shallots

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Rosemary

1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Coriander

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon Grand Marnier liquor


Let roast stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 500º F.

Pat beef dry and season with salt and pepper to taste. Roast beef for 30 minutes. Reduce heat 300ºF. Crush allspice  and combine with black pepper, rosemary, oregano, thyme, coriander, salt, flour, mustard and butter to form a paste; spread on roast. Roast beef for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until meat reaches 135ºF for medium rare. Rest 20 to 30 minutes before carving.

Combine cream, mustard, beef broth, pan drippings, shallots, rosemary, coriander and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and simmer 2 minutes. Add Grand Marnier and continue cooking an additional 5 minutes to reduce liquid. Serve over beef.

Recipe Note:  lightly crush rosemary leaves, if desired.
