"A definite different twist on an old classic. This prime rib will really spice things up! Use the pan drippings for au-jus or make some delicious Yorkshire Pudding. Whip up a batch of fresh horseradish sauce and serve this prime rib with garlic asparagus or a fluffy baked potato. Please note the total time includes 1 hour for marinating." — by Bill Echols

"Just created this tonight and it's definitely a keeper! The Hubby and I can't wait to try it again, next time on the grill; the smoky flavors imparted by cooking over the coals will complement the sauce nicely. It's a lovely way to serve an otherwise inexpensive piece of meat." — by The Magpie

If you don't have fresh thyme, substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com." — by Christine L.
