Standing Rib Roast with Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce or Garlic Blue Cheese Sauce

For Christmas Dinner this past year we had a standing rib roast.

It was wonderful.

Prime Rib can be tricky to prepare, but somehow the husband has managed the last couple of years. The information found at the following website has been very helpful in the past.

Perfect Prime Rib website

Following some of the pictures from Christmas, 2009 look for the recipes for two delicious sauces to serve with Prime Rib… involving horseradish and the other with a blue cheese base.

Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce
¼ to ½ cup prepared horseradish (according to your taste)
1 pint (2 cups) sour cream
2 T. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 t. salt

In a medium sized bowl, combine horseradish, sour cream, lemon juice and salt; thoroughly mix. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Note: Can be made 2 days in advance. Cover and refrigerate

Garlic blue Cheese Sauce

¾ cup heavy cream
1 medium clove garlic, thinly sliced
6 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
Freshly ground black pepper

In a medium sized saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring cream and garlic just to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until the cream coats the back of a spoon, approximately 5-10 minutes.
Remove from heat Stir in crumbled blue cheese. Season to taste with the pepper.

Uncle Chris seems to be enjoying his plate.....
