Frozen Prime Rib
I always salt the prime rib for 24 hours before roasting. But since it is frozen, should I just defrost it in the fridge loosely wraped or without covering on a rack? Should I wait until it is completely defrosted before I put the salt on? And finally, is there a benefit to salting it for 48 hours? Thank you!
Depending on where you place it in the fridge, a 2-rib roast might well not be thawed in 48 hours. Indeed, I'd expect it not to be thawed in the center. But maybe that's just my fridge, which I keep at about 35 degrees.
I'd put it in the fridge Thursday. It will not spoil by Sunday or Monday, when you could proceed with your salting scheme.
