Did you know that Prime Rib has a day to celebrate its delicious perfection? Well, I did, and in preparation for this hallowed day, on April 27th, I prepared some Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib for dinner. Rubbed with a combination of steak spice, salt, and espresso powder, then slow roasted on my Prestige PRO 500 Gas Grill, and seared to crispy perfection; this Prime Rib made a most delicious dinner.

Ingredients

Directions

Step 1
Preheat your grill to low, about 250°F to 300°F.
Step 2
In a small bowl, combine the instant espresso powder, Club House La Grille Montreal Steak Spice Seasoning, Club House La Grille Smouldering Smoked Applewood Seasoning, and salt. Evenly coat all sides of the Prime Rib.
Step 3
Using a meat thermometer, like the Napoleon PRO Wireless Digital Thermometer, to monitor the doneness of your meat. My household prefers their beef to be on the rarer side of medium, so we set the thermometer to 130°F. If you prefer something a little less rare, set your thermometer between 135°F and 140°F.
Step 4
Cook the Prime Rib using indirect heat for 60 minutes to an 80 minutes, or until your meat thermometer reads 130°F to 140°F depending on your desired doneness. The idea is to slow cook it without causing the maillard reaction to occur. This will allow you to sear a perfect crust using high heat later.
Step 5
Remove the Prime Rib from the grill and allow it to rest for at least 10 minutes while you preheat your side burner or main grill to high, about 500°F.
Step 6
Sear the Prime Rib on every side for one to two minutes, or until delicious sear marks form.
Step 7
Slice the Prime Rib across the thin edge instead of trying to get large and flat slices. This produces loads of juicy slices that look even more seductive when fanned out. Serve with your favorite potato and vegetable dishes.

Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib was delicious; a perfect weekend dinner to share with family, or a great meal for celebrating a holiday. The espresso added a deep and smoky flavor to the beef that brought out the best in the Prime Rib. Don’t worry; you won’t get a caffeine rush while eating this dinner, it’s all just perfectly cooked beefy goodness. When do you add coffee to enhance the flavor of a meal? 

Happy Grilling!
