something different for ChristmasPosted: December 23, 2013
For the last I-don’t-know-how-many years, Terry and I have done turkey for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. For a few years we ordered a turkey breast from Whole Paycheck, but that was something of a pain because we had to head up into the Greater San Jose area, and any Whole Foods is by definition in a high-traffic congested area. Last year we discovered Rocca’s Market and ordered both our Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys there. This year we got our Thanksgiving turkey at Rocca’s, but for Christmas we decided we were in a rut. After discussing it, we decided to do prime rib for Christmas, and placed our Rocca’s order for that.
Terry has been known to order prime rib when we dine out, but neither of us has ever fixed it before. I’ve been sorting through a variety of variant instructions for cooking it, trying to figure out which one will work the best.
It will be an adventure. Suggestions welcome from those of you who have experience with this cut.
