Prime Rib is Best with Atomic Horseradish “Super Hot” Sauce

They didn’t name it “Atomic” for nothing: this amazing blend of spices and vegetables combines to produce an extreme hot sauce flavor unlike any other we’ve experienced.

Atomic’s 6 ounce bottle should be more than enough product to spice up your prime rib. The quality of the sauce is second to none. Only the best quality horseradish is used, teamed with a secret blend of flavors that will have you calling 911 after your first bite.

We recommend adding this sauce to your prime rib gradually, so that all tastes and spice tolerances can be accommodated. Don’t pour it all on at once unless you know what you’re getting yourself into! 🙂

Of course, this horseradish sauce can be used for other dishes, too. Use a scant amount to spice up an otherwise boring vegetable dip, or substitute for Wasabi next to your other favorite beef dishes.

Prime Rib Nutrition Facts – How Healthy is Prime Rib?

Prime Rib tastes great and is very filling, but is it healthy?

Editorial Note 05/01/2015: Some readers have asked about nutritional values and carb counts. We initially quoted stats for prime rib only, NOT including sides. We will review this post for accuracy and regret any errors.

You’ve just sat down to dinner at a classic steakhouse. After having a garden salad and drinks, your waiter returns with a 10 oz cut of prime rib. Will your bathroom scale be complaining in the morning?

Important: This information EXCLUDES rubs, sauces, condiments, or side dishes. This information is for rib alone. A rib prepared with a spicy rub might not increase any of the negative nutritional elements, but a rich Hollandaise Sauce dipping station will send fat and cholesterol numbers higher.

Before we get into specifics about actual numbers per nutritional element, please note the following:

  1. Diets are highly individual. One person’s poison is another’s salvation. Some people might need to eat high sodium meals, while others might have to pass. Consult your doctor to get the best diet recommendations based on your health profile.
  2. Preparation matters. Most simple cuts of prime rib are about equal in terms of fat, calories, and cholesterol. Prime rib that has been prepared with special rubs, sauces, or other condiments might be less healthy.
  3. Serving size matters. The more meat you eat, the more calories, cholesterol, and fats you will intake. Some chain restaurants list nutritional information near the front of their dining areas for health conscious eaters. Make sure the data they list on their chart matches the serving size on the menu. There’s a BIG difference between an 8 oz rib and a 12 oz rib nutritionally.

Next we’ll delve into the prime rib dishes of popular restaurants and their individual nutritional VALUES. This information might include any signature rubs applied to each restaurant’s respective rib. Also, note that some serving sizes will vary.

Large or small, on a sandwich or on a big dinner plate, a tasty restaurant-prepared Prime Rib can definitely clog the arteries. Again, our recommendation is to eat these high calorie, high fat meals as treats, perhaps consumed no more than once every 3 weeks.

If you’re in shape and exercise regularly, feel free to eat more prime rib more often. Note that it is a heavy meal, so give it a day to pass through your system before attempting an endurance training session.

Finally, what’s the best part of prime rib, nutritionally speaking? Protein. And lots of it. Those lifting weights on a regular basis will definitely benefit from a nice slab of prime rib every so often. Some of the preparations listed above exceed 20 grams of protein per serving, making it a savory way to bulk up.

  • 10 Tablespoons prepared horseradish = 6 Tablespoons dried powdered
  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh root = 2-3/4 cups peeled and grated

Note: This one is a little more complicated, but the end result is an amazing flavor that can’t be missed!


  1. 1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter

For the Horseradish Puree:

  1. 1/4 cup drained prepared horseradish
  2. 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar

Place the egg yolks in a slightly larger non-reactive saucepan. Whisk in the water and the salt. Place over medium-low heat. Slowly pour the warm butter into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. After all the butter has been incorporated, continue whisking approximately 3 to 5 minutes over the heat, until the sauce is light and fluffy and has almost doubled in volume.

Yield: About 2 cups

Best Prime Rib Side Dishes

Now that you’ve perfected your prime rib cooking skills, it’s time to complement your meat with great side dishes.

Super Easy Side Dishes Youtube Playlist Video – Asparagus, Carrots, and more

A starch and vegetable side are mandatory; in addition to a rich veggie preparation, rice, twice baked potatoes, and many other creative companions. A tasty meal is comprised of several different elements, each of which should be unique and palatable.

Best Prime Rib Side Dishes

With that said, here is a good list of popular prime rib side dishes. Bear in mind that the way in which you prepare your rib dictates the best sides: a savory cajun prime rib will need a couple other cajun dishes to make the meal complete.

  1. Yorkshire PuddingOur official Yorkshire Pudding Page is here. This is Prime Rib’s most famous companion. While the ingredients to most Yorkshire Pudding preparations are minimal, it can be hard to cook “just right”. The usual battle with Yorkshire Pudding revolves around making it not too dry, not too soggy. Yorkshire Pudding is cooked along side Prime Rib.
  2. Mixed Vegetables – Make your Prime Rib meal a healthy affair with cooked vegetables on the side. Carrots, zucchini, parsnips, red onions, and leeks are great ways to diversify your meal. To add more flavor, prepare the veggies with cheese, breadcrumbs, and cream. If you’d rather keep it simple, just boil them to taste. Add spices: garlic, rosemary, and thyme.
  3. Garlic Bread – Garlic bread is super-simple to make and always very tasty. A nice mixture of butter and garlic, or olive oil and garlic painted on some good sized slices of bread will be a great side dish. Bread sides are great for those who love to sop up their au jus as they improvise ways to get all the great flavors off their plates.
  4. Baked Potato – Another easy starch, baked potato will round out most prime rib dinners very nicely. Health nuts will like a simple baked potato with just a touch of butter or margarine. Others might like to dress them up with sour cream, butter, a sprinkle of cheese, or an intensive blend of spices. Our instructions for Twice baked potatoes, the most advanced baked potato preparation, offers the most opportunities for making a unique potato prep; although you’ll spend a little more time in the kitchen to do it.
  5. Salad, etc. – The ways to prepare and make a great salad are endless, so we won’t get into specifics here except to say that a nice side of greens will sell your prime rib to health conscious guests. One popular salad is the Waldorf Salad – click here for directions. Others like a traditional blend of American greens with ranch dressing, that can also be mixed into the rib on one’s plate. Spice things up with a homemade salad dressing of your own!
  6. Alternative Veggies – If carrots and zucchini aren’t your thing, take heart: creamed spinach, asparagus, broccoli, eggplant, or yams are great choices. Onions and green beans can also be delectable.
  7. Rice, etc. – Rice is versatile, healthy, and a nice diversion from the oft used potato side. Many chefs like to prepare rice pilaf with their prime rib. You can also make curried rice, fried rice, or even a “Rice-a-roni” style side that will delight your guests. Cooking rice is simple and it can be gussied up with a host of tasty spices, sauces, or mixtures.
  8. High Society – Want to really go all out and put the 5 star chefs on notice? Make a unique side dish for your rib, such as Haricot Verts with Herbed Butter – click here. Don’t worry, just because it sounds odd doesn’t mean it’s hard to make. If your dinner audience is tired of the tried and true Prime Rib sides, it’s time to take your game to the next level. You’ve been SERVED!

The best prime rib side dishes can make a prime rib dinner prep more complicated, but can literally be the difference between a “meat only” feast or “something for everyone”. These days, everyone’s eating habits are highly unique and picky. A nice prime rib with a variety of side dishes will make your meal more enticing and put smiles on your guest’s faces.

Youtube Prime Rib Dinner Preparation and Instructions: Chef John

Let’s face it, not everyone is a 5 star chef. Most of us struggle to make a good grilled cheese. Although the process of preparing a good Prime Rib is relatively brief, there’s a lot that can go wrong.

Did you get the rub right? Did the roast spend enough time in the oven? Is it cooking on the inside? How much time do I need for preparing a large amount of prime rib? Can I cook side dishes an au jus at the simultaneously?

Sometimes text instructions aren’t good enough. After all, cooking is a hands on art and not always easily translated from a cookbook.

There’s a reason why “Mom’s secret touch” made the wholesome food you grew up with: she knew exactly how the oven worked, what recipes were tasty, and how long to cook meat.

Chef John from posted a great instructional video about preparing prime rib properly. It’s especially helpful for those attempting it for the first time. Chef John’s instructions are detailed and complete. His video includes photos of the prime rib prep process that are helpful and informative.

Was Prime Rib Invented in Great Britain?

During my youth, my mother dutifully prepared every Christmas dinner, which included a basic roast as the main entree.

She also skillfully made Prime Rib’s super companion, Yorkshire Pudding. This heavy, but extremely tasty creation, is made with flour, roast beef gravy, beef stock, and select flavoring.

That was our traditional holiday dinner in a primarily Irish household.

One thing is for sure: “Yorkshire” is not south of Dublin!

Curry the Secret to Indian Style Prime Rib

Any fan of Indian food will know that one of the key ingredients to most dishes is curry, a traditional seasoning in Indian cooking.

An authentic Indian eatery stateside will have dishes with curry readily available, not mention other even spicier selections for those with steel palettes.

Preparation Tip:
If you want to add curry to your Prime Rib, do so during the traditional seasoning and spicing stage of rib preparation. Even better, add curry to a tasty paste and let the beef absorb the flavor for 24-48 hours before roasting.

Easy Curry Prime Rib Roast

Portion: This recipe is for preparing a prime rib roast with curry in the rub. You’ll need enough of the paste to cover the top of your prime rib. Err on the side of caution and make a little extra paste if necessary.


  1. 5 to 6 lb. Prime Rib
  2. 1/3 cup beef broth (usually available next to soups at the grocery store)
  3. 1/4 cup Garlic Salt
  4. 2 tbsp. Curry Powder
  5. 2 tbsp. Black Pepper

You’ll also need a Meat thermometer for evaluating your roast’s cooking progress


  1. Preheat the over to 500 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Combine the broth, salt, pepper, and the curry powder to make a paste. Rub the paste on the top of the roast.
  3. Bake the prime rib, roast fat site up, for 20 minutes.
  4. Lower the temperature of the over to 300 degrees Farenheit and bake the roast for an additional 1.5 hours. Don’t open the over at al during the baking process, if possible.
  5. Check the internal temperature of the roast with a meat thermometer; the roast is done when the internal temperatue is 155-160 Farenheit. (*Tip: to avoid opening the oven during the baking process, position the thermometer on the roast so it’s possible to read the temperature from your oven window. Otherwise, allow the minimum baking time to pass before opening your door and getting the temperature.)

Great Indian Side Dish for Prime Rib
Indian food is well known for its rich and powerful sauces. Serve your next rib with a few different dipping stations, including Tandoori, Mumbai, and Calcutta traditional sauces. Make every bite of your rib count!

Key Largo Restaurant: World Class Ribs, Breasts, and Potatoes

This week we’re reviewing the famous Key Largo Restaurant of San Jose, Costa Rica. This popular tourist attraction is located in the heart of San Jose, a minute’s walk from the famous Horseshoe Casino.

No detail is overlooked in Chef Jorge “El Gordo” Rodriguez’s succulent prime rib, slow roasted to perfection with a touch of Costa Rican flavor.

We sat down at 7:00 PM after enjoying a nice walk through the vibrant downtown section of San Jose, the capital city of Costa Rica. Service was prompt and attentive. Drinks were served within minutes and at reasonable prices.

Key Largo’s menu features a robust selection of soups, appetizers, and entrees. Although we weren’t in the market for a Caesar salad, the hefty 10 oz “Tico” Prime Rib caught our eye. The waiter proudly described the dish in good English, making sure to indicate that this particular preparation had a “nice kick” of local spices and flavoring.

We passed on bread and soups, saving room for what would surely be a bulky slab of meat.

When waiter Diana returned 30 minutes later, she presented us with 2 enormous plates of Tico beef, with complimentary sides of white rice, black beans, and Pico de Gallo. It took us a good hour to eat, but there was plenty to talk about and see in this bustling Central American metropolis.

Desserts looked good but the tank was full. Off to the Monkey bar for a night cap!

What a meal! We give it 5 stars!
