Being from a Mexican family, cooking for others and forcing them to eat before they leave your house, is part of our culture. We often show our love by cooking for family and friends. You are sad? Let me make you something! You are happy? Let me bake you something! Your boyfriend broke up with you? Let me make you a special drink!

In each BIG SEXY newsletter I’ll be sharing one of our favorite family recipes. What makes them even better is that each recipe will feature one of the many Certified Piedmontese Products we keep on hand. With products so delicious, healthy, and lean, my meals are guaranteed to never fail!

Christmas is always a fun time to celebrate with family and friends. Since it’s only one month after Thanksgiving, turkey and chicken do not sound appetizing. It’s our tradition to eat a standing rib roast with potatoes au gratin and a green.

Beginning with a 'great' cut of beef is essential when planning a delicious Standing Rib Roast, I obviously recommend skipping the hectic grocery stores and ordering Certified Piedmontese.
Standing Rib Roast
9 lb standing rib roast
● 4 large fresh thyme sprigs
● 4 large fresh parsley sprigs
● 4 large fresh rosemary sprigs
● 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, room temperature (feel free to use a little more)
● 2 tablespoons olive oil
● 1 1/2 Tablespoons coarse salt
● 1 tablespoon pepper
● Preheat oven to 400°F.
● Chop herbs, salt and pepper and make a paste with butter and olive oil. Using hands generously cover roast.
● Place beef (fat side up) on a rack set inside a roasting pan. Roast until nicely browned, ~35 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of beef registers the doneness you desire. Check roasting chart for temperatures. Transfer roast to a cutting board with ribs pointing upward and let rest at least 30 minutes.
● Cut meat off bones, following curve of ribs, and thinly slice. Or, cut between ribs into massive chops for sharing.
A few things to remember:
Bring meat to room temperature before roasting (~ 1 - 1/2 hours). Remember meat will cook an additional 10 degrees after it is removed from oven. Tent the meat for 30 minutes to allow juices to be re-incorporated into roast.

*** I hate prepping food on Christmas morning, as the kids are running around like crazy and I’m too busy laughing and drinking mimosas. The last thing I feel like doing is cooking or cleaning, so this is the perfect roast to prep beforehand.

In order to make this recipe the day before, you can go ahead and season it, keep chilled and bring to room temp before roasting. Search more awesome recipes on the Certified Piedmontese Website

Buen provecho!
