Prime Rib with Cabernet Jus

  • 2-750 ml bottles Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 4 cups beef stock or canned broth
  • 2 cups ruby Port
  • 3 large garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 large shallot, peeled, halved
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 6-pound boneless prime rib beef roast
  • 4 large garlic cloves, pressed

Combine first 6 ingredients and 1 tsp. thyme in a large nonaluminum saucepan.  Boil until reduced to 2 cups, about 1 hour.  Strain.

Preheat oven to 450 F.  Place beef, fat side up, in heavy 13x9x2-inch baking pan.  Rub beef all over with pressed garlic and remaining 2 tsp. thyme.  Season with salt and pepper.  Roast 1 hour.  Tent beef with foil.  Continue roasting until meat thermometer inserted in center registers 118 F for rare, about 35 minutes.  Transfer to platter and let stand 20 minutes.

Pour all of the fat from the roasting pan.  Place pan over medium-high heat.  Add Cabernet mixture to the pan and bring to a boil, scrapping up any brown bits.  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour jus into a sauce boat.  Carve beef and serve.

8 Servings.
