"This is the most minimalist method for doing a quick au jus for your prime rib of beef."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

beef fat drippings from a prime rib or other roast beef (see footnote)
1 1/2 tablespoons
salt and ground black pepper to taste
A nice jus for any beef roast or beef sandwich.
A fine basic gravy, but not au jus in my opinion.
Very easy. I didn't have beef drippings, so used margarine, and used water and Better than Bullion for the beef broth. Takes 5 minutes, and was good with the Beef and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwiches I made it for. I ended up with more than I needed, so I just tossed the remainder in a soup I'm putting together for the crock pot. If you added more flour, this would also make some beef gravy. Thanks for the recipe!
Amazing!! My Husband could not get enough of this!!
Made this for New Years Day dinner w/Chef John's Prime Rib recipe......it was fantastic!!! Word to the wise tho....I keep a baking stone in my oven and it retained too much heat and my roast came out Medium instead of Med-Rare. Lesson learned!! Just gives me an excuse to try it again tonight!! This Au Jus was delicious with the roast and I will be making it also tonight ;-) Thanks Chef John!!!!
We made this for roast beef sandwiches. We didn't have beef drippings so we just used the same amount of butter instead and it still came out great.
When my six year old finished his prim rib he picked up his Au Jus sauce bowl and drank it, then said "mom, can I have more of this soup?" Everyone laughed and laughed, awesome moment. Thank you Chef John!
This is delicious and simple to make. I was cooking a nice prime rib and I hadn't any au jus packages and so I went to the internet to see what I could find. This was better than any package and it is my go to recipe now. I use the beef broth in the carton. What I don't use I freeze in 1 cup tupperware for use another day.
