instructions: salt and pepper liberally. set in roasting pan. heat oven to 450 degrees F; cook for 20-30 minutes; reduce heat to 300 degrees F. cook until thermometer inserted reaches 110 degrees, for rare/medium rare. remove and let rest for 15-30 minutes, then slice into steaks.
the butcher at pastaworks gave me the general idea, and then i see the VERY SAME recipe for prime rib roast (this is the same thing, minus the bones) in the oregonian’s food day the following tuesday. they didn’t even mention the availability of prime rib at pastaworks! i wanted to call and read them the riot act, but i didn’t. maybe i’ll email.
i served with a balsamic jus, essentially just a reduction of pan juices, beef stock, balsamic vinegar and butter. would probably have worked better without pan juices.
Stuffed Turkey Roll

in Italy Thanksgiving isn’t a national holiday but to be close to my american family even if miles separate us I made turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.
instead of herb-seasoned bread stuffing mix that I never saw in Italy, I mixed bread crumbs with some olive oil, shredded parmigiano cheese, salt, pepper, ground dried chili, rosemary, marjoram, a egg yolk and some milk to smooth.
