5 Wines for Prime Rib If you’re looking to roast a whole ribeye roast for the first time, check out this recipe:

Prime Rib with Horseradish Cream

For a few years in the first decade of the 2000s, my buddy Paul and I often hosted dinner parties where the main course was a whole ribeye roast.  I’d take care of the appetizers, soup course, fish course, and wine pairings, and then would sit back while Paul took care of the beef.  My timing was intentional, as all of my sauces and prep required a lot of work beforehand and by the fourth course of a major dinner party, I was ready to slump into my chair and enjoy eating.

It’s a pretty simple dish to make and if you can catch it on sale, surprisingly affordable.  You get the opportunity to feed 6-8 people decent sized slices of Prime Rib and the next day you can shave off thinner pieces for the greatest roast beef sandwiches you’ll ever eat.  Of course, a feast like this requires the right wines for the complete experience, and nothing is better than the perfectly aged 20 year old Burgundy that comes from a Domaine that no longer exists and can not be purchased anywhere.  But in the real world, you need something you can actually purchase and enjoy with dinner.  I’ve got a range of selections for you to explore as you break out the roasting pan.
