i am planning to make prime-rib for xmas dinner, and i am clueless when it comes to quantity. there will be 11 adults...how big a roast do i need? any ideas??
I think a lot of restos cook them rare and touch them up in the microwave.
I'd order 6 ribs starting from the small end. You will have left overs and that is not a bad thing. With a roast that size you can fill all orders.
I would figure about a 1/2 - 3/4 lb per guest - so 5.5 to 8.25 lb roast - having grown up in a house where not being able to offer seconds is a mortal sin - I would lean towards the high side -
tanks very much...one other question if i might. some of my guests are die hard well done meat fans, the others prefer med to med rare. how do i manage both at once?
That is the tricky part - one way which I have done in the past - by 2 roasts of equal size and cook each according to the taste of your guests -
