Chinese New Year Prime Rib: Best Recipes, Ingredients, and Ideas

Unlike the calendar New Year’s Day – celebrated January 1st of each year – Chinese New Year is on its own schedule. Each year has its own animal symbol: 2013 was the year of the snake, January 31, 2014 will be the year of the horse, etc. We’ve included a handy chart below for your reference – Click Here Chinese New Year Calendar.

Chinese Marinated Prime Rib Roast

Source: TheIngredientStore.com Youtube Video: Chef John’s Prime Rib Cooking Method (apply to our recipe for Chinese Prime Rib) Ingredients: Directions:
  1. Let rib roast sit at room temperature for a few hours. A warmer roast will decrease cooking time.
  2. Preheat over to 500 degrees.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine ginger, marmalade, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, hot sauce and mustard. Mix well and gently stir in pineapple juice.
  4. Prick holes in the roast with a two-pronged fork. Place roast in a large bowl or plastic container.
  5. Substitute your marinade in place of Chef John’s butter mix. Pour marinade over roast; cover and let marinate at room temperature, basting twice.
  6. When the roast is ready for cooking, place it in the roasting pan.
  7. Leave about one cup of the marinade in the roasting pan. Pour the olive oil over the roast and cover roast with black pepper.
  8. Baking time is calculated as follows from Chef John: Weight of entire roast in pounds (ie 5.5 lbs from label) x 5 minutes = 27.5 Minutes baking time. Round up to the nearest whole number to be sure, which is 28 from our example.
  9. Important: Make sure your roast and marinade are both at room temperature, or else you will have to cook them much longer! (remember, leave your roast out for a few hours before preparing it).
  10. Bake for the amount of time you calculated using the middle of the oven.
  11. When time is up. Turn OFF the oven, but DO NOT OPEN it. Leave it inside the over for another 2 hours. The heat trapped within the oven from the initial searing at 500 degrees will cook the meat to a nice rare to medium-rare. (Lock door if you have curious kids! 🙂 )
  12. Remove after 2 hours and serve. There is no need to let it “rest”, since it has already rested inside the oven.
Serving Suggestion: Serve sliced Chinese marinated prime rib roast with steamed or fried rice and broccoli or pea pods. Add a splash of soy sauce to each slice if desired. Source: TheIngredientStore.com

Chef John’s Roast Turkey and Gravy Recipe

Top Of Page | Roast Turkey Dinner | Cornish Game Hens | Apple and Walnut Stuffed Pork | Lamb Braised Pomegranate Source: AllRecipes.com Video Instructions – Ingredients and Text Instructions Below Ingredients Yield: 1 Whole Roast Turkey with Gravy Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Mix 2 tablespoons salt, and 1 tablespoon pepper, and poultry seasoning in a small bowl. Tuck turkey wings under the bird, and season cavity with about 1 tablespoon of the poultry seasoning mixture. Reserve remaining poultry seasoning mix.
  3. Toss the onion, celery, and carrots together in a bowl. Stuff about 1/2 cup of the vegetable mixture, rosemary sprigs, and 1/2 bunch sage into the cavity of the turkey. Tie legs together with kitchen string.
  4. Loosen the skin on top of the turkey breast using fingers or a small spatula. Place about 2 tablespoons butter under the skin and spread evenly. Spread the remaining butter (about 2 tablespoons) all over the outside of the skin.
  5. Sprinkle the outside of the turkey with the remaining poultry seasoning mix.
  6. Spread the remaining onion, celery, and carrots into a large roasting pan. Place the turkey on top of the vegetables. Fill the pan with about 1/2 inch of water. Arrange a sheet of aluminum foil over the breast of the turkey.
  7. Roast the turkey in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 3 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (75 degrees C). Remove the foil during the last hour of cooking. Baste the turkey with the pan juices.
  8. While the turkey is roasting, make stock: place neck, heart, and gizzards in a saucepan with the bay leaf and water. Simmer over medium heat for 2 hours. Strain the turkey giblets from the stock, and discard giblets. There should be at least 4 cups of stock.
  9. Remove the turkey from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. Pour the pan juices, about 3 cups, into a saucepan and set aside.
  10. Skim off the turkey fat from the pan juices, reserving about 2 tablespoons.
  11. Heat 2 tablespoons of the turkey fat and 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  12. Transfer the onion from the roasting pan into the skillet. Cook and stir until the onion is browned, about 5 minutes, then stir in the flour.
  13. Continue to cook and stir for about 5 minutes more; whisk in 4 cups of the skimmed turkey stock and the reserved pan juices until smooth; skim off any foam. Stir in the balsamic vinegar.
  14. Simmer until the gravy is thickened, whisking constantly, about 10 minutes.
  15. Stir in 1 tablespoon of chopped sage, and season to taste with salt and black pepper.
*Note: For thicker gravy, double the amounts of turkey fat, butter, and flour in the gravy part of the recipe. Source: AllRecipes.com

Steak and Prime Rib in Baltimore, Maryland – Best Restaurants for Meat Lovers

Baltimore, Maryland was founded in 1729, and has been one of the country’s largest cities ever since. Today it is known as “a city of neighborhoods”, with more than 70 unique areas each with their own culture and ethnicity. Sports fans will know the NFL Baltimore Ravens (Super Bowl XLVII 2013 Champions) and the Baltimore Orioles with now retired third baseman Cal Ripken, Jr. Baltimore is a great town to visit, and has its own distinct dialect: don’t be surprised if you hear locals referring to the city as “balmer” in some areas, while “baldamore” in others. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra calls this city home, in addition to the Maryland Film Festival, and Peabody Institute, part of the Johns Hopkins University (one of the city’s top employers). The last Civil War era floating vessel, the USS Constellation, remains docked in this historic port city. Visit “B’More”, “The City of Firsts”, or “Mobtown” 🙂 today!

Best Pre-made Prime Rib Rubs – Save Time and Energy with these Classic Rubs

Sure, you can make prime rib without any flavor beyond its inherent taste, but that’s not so fun after the third or fourth time. 🙂 Over the years, countless chefs and restaurants have decided to make prime rib more interesting utilizing custom-made rubs. Meat rubs are mixed herbs and seasonings applied to prime rib before cooking. They can be dry or wet. Typically the wet rubs should be made immediately prior to application, whereas dry rubs can be stored in the pantry much longer. We’ve taken the liberty of reviewing some of the more common prime rib rubs available for sale. Buy them safely and securely at Amazon and they’ll be at your doorstep in a couple days!

Washington D.C. Steakhouses and Prime Rib – These Eateries Are NOT like Congress!

Home to our nation’s Capitol Building and White House, Washington D.C. is the command center of the USA. It is arguably the most powerful city in the world, despite the dysfunctional legislature 🙂 . Don’t despair D.C. visitors, there’s plenty to see. The Smithsonian, Air and Space Museum, Washington Monument, U.S. Treasury Building, Vietnam Memorial, and countless other exhibits abound in this historic city. D.C. has an active nightlife, with plenty of bars to patronize. You might even bump into your Congressman (hopefully he/she won’t be too drunk), members of the armed forces, and of course lobbyists looking to blow off some steam. Yes, despite the political rancor, the city itself is still a memorable destination, even if you don’t quite agree with every lawmaker in town.
