    Hello, I, too, am having Prime Rib for Christmas Dinner and wanted to know how you fix yours.  I plan on about a 4-5 # roast.  I am using "root veggies" to cook with mine and then I am making a "mure pia" (don't know if I spelled that correctly).  But in simple words I am hand mashing the root veggies and adding them to my mashed potatoes.  I am planning on corn, garlic bread and I have a special green salad recipe that my family loves to accompany the meal. 

    Merry Christmas

    I make my green beans like this. Boil the green beans until done. Saute onion and fresh mushrooms with real butter until done, Cook bacon like you do, I mirowave mine and mix all toghter. My family just love these. Or Brussel Sprouts are good made the same way.

    If they are health concious they probably won't like this but it is  awesome with beef. Yorkshire pudding is my vote.

    How about some whole grain rolls? 

    Here's how I do a "healthier" potato side:  cube potatoes, coat with a tablespoon of butter, sprinkle with Lawry's Seasoned Salt and Lawry's Seasoned Pepper, sprinkle in some chopped green onions, and bake until potatoes are tender.  I also add some grated cheddar and crumbled bacon - yum!, but those additions may not be healthy enough for this occasion.

    I discovered this recipe a couple of years ago and now we are asked to serve it at all holiday functions by DS and DDIL. They even fixed it for Thanksgiving. It is easy and delicious.    MM

    Your timing is startling. Today I watched Tyler Florence prepare Prime Rib and his side dishes were Creamed Pearl Onions, Creamed Spinach,  Crispy and Creamy New Potato Pie,  and Candied  Carrots.  Recipes follow:

     Creamed Pearl Onions

    1 bag frozen pearl onions
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Thaw pearl onions and then saute in butter until golden brown. Deglaze by adding a little water at a time. Finish with heavy cream and reduce until you achieve a smooth consistency. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

    Crispy and Creamy New Potato Pie

    2 pounds potatoes, washed and halved
    1 bay leaf
    1 tablespoon freshly grated horseradish (or prepared)
    1 cup sour cream
    1/4 cup chives, chopped
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash and boil potatoes in salty water with bay leaf until fork tender. Drain potatoes and mash along with horseradish, sour cream, and chives. Season with salt and pepper. Put mixture into a 10-inch skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and bake until golden and crispy. To serve, invert onto a plate and cut into pieces.

     

     Candied Carrots 1 bunch young carrots, with tops
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
    1 orange, zested and halved
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut off all but 1-inch of the carrot tops, leaving a little green. Put the carrots in a large shallow pan, add the oil, and season with salt and pepper. Turn to coat the carrots. Stick them in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, until the carrots are fork-tender.

    In the meantime, melt the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Swirl the pan around and cook until the butter begins to become brown and nutty. Squeeze in the juice from the orange halves, add the zest, brown sugar, cumin and cinnamon and continue to cook for 2 minutes or until syrupy. Remove the carrots from the oven, drizzle the orange brown butter over the carrots and serve.

    Creamed Spinach

    Extra-virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1 onion, minced
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    2 pounds fresh baby spinach, stemmed
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1/2 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Heat a large pot over medium heat. Drizzle with a 2-count of oil, add the butter, and stir it around so it melts. Saute the onion and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach in batches, pushing it down with a wooden spoon to help it wilt. Keep adding more spinach when there is room in the pot. Cook the spinach until it is dry, then lower the heat and add the cream and nutmeg. Stir and cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.

    Mushrooms go so well with beef.  On a similar thread to this, Burgundy Mushrooms, which you can search for on this site, were suggested.  I thought I would post this simple recipe for roasted musrooms which is also delicious, and it's lots easier than sauteed mushrooms.

     

    ROASTED MUSHROOMS WITH HERBS

     (Serve 2 as a main dish, or 6 as a side dish)

    1/4 lb. cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

    1/4 lb. shitake mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    1/4 cup olive oil

    1/2 cup loose packed fresh herbs such as chives, thyme, marjoram and flat-leaf parsley,minced

    Sour cream for garnish

    Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment.

    Clean mushrooms by wiping them with a damp paper towel.  Do not put them in water to clean as they will soak up the water and be soggy.   Slice mushrooms and toss in a large bowl with  generous amount of salt and pepper and the olive oil.  Roast for 20 minutes, then toss the mushrooms once, and return to oven.  Roast for an additional 10 minutes or until they are dark and slightly shrunken.

     Return the roasted mushrooms to the bowl.  Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary.  Toss with the herbs, then transfer to a serving dish and top with a dollop of sour cream.  Serve immediately.
