Prime Rib with Herb Crust and Horseradish Sauce is delicious and impressive. I love to serve this for dinner parties or special family occasions. Have your butcher cut the prime rib roast for you. I always bake at least a 5 pound roast. You can allow 1/2 pound per person when ordering the roast. If you would like to serve wine with this dinner, The Velvet Palate recommends Cicchitti – a Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina. (Tasting Notes)
