This Prime Rib with a Horseradish Salt + Pepper Crust is tender, flavourful and so delicious! A decadent and special main dish.
About this Prime Rib Recipe:
This has THE MOST delicious and flavourful crust made up of fresh herbs, fresh horseradish and loads of salt and pepper… you’ll be fighting over the outside pieces! Then we use a pan filled with Guinness beer, in the barbecue under the beef, to add flavour and make the most delicious pan drippings…which also make an incredible gravy. Mouth watering yet? 😉
Roast it on the Barbecue:
Our favourite way to roast prime rib is in the barbecue, using a rotisserie. Not only is this method very easy, but it makes the most flavour beef and crust.

Prime Rib Recipe Tips
- This recipe requires resting time: Rub the spice mix over the entire surface of the prime rib, then wrap meat in plastic, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or even overnight before barbecuing.
- Have meat at room temperature: Bring the meat out prior to cooking, and allow time to have it come up to room temperature prior to putting it on the barbecue.
- Horseradish: If you can, use fresh horseradish as it has the most flavour.
- Beer: We like to add Guinness beer to the drippings pan, but of course, you can use your favourite beer, the darker the better though, as it’s more flavourful. If you don’t want to use beer, you can also use red wine or beef broth. Use about 2 cups, but you will have to top it up as the beef roasts.
- Tray for pan drippings: We just use a tin foil pan and place it in the barbecue under the beef.
- When the roast is done: Remove your roast when it is about 5 degrees below the internal temperature you want, and let it sit, covered with foil, for about 15 minutes.
