Prime Rib and Oven-Roasted Potatoes with Bay Leaves and Sage

A proper Victorian Christmas dinner had a roast at its center. The archetypal English "joint," prime rib of beef, features a burnished crust and a rosy interior. Although Mediterranean in origin, bay leaves and sage pair beautifully with cold-weather fare, enhancing the prime rib and accompanying potatoes.

Cook's Notes

Rub the roast with the herb mixture the day before you cook it; the roast needs to be refrigerated overnight.

    This was our Christmas dinner and like it was in the oven it filled the house with a heavenly herb and orange essence. My sister made her fennel/red onion/orange salad and I made rosemary fingerling baked potatoes. The orange and onion in the salad perfectly complimented the roast which we made to a lovely red perfection. The rosemary in the potatoes married well with the herbs in the rub. This recipe is a keeper!

    This is a great recipe for prime rib--love the orange zest and have never seen that used this way before. When I bought the meat, I asked the butcher to "french" the bones for me and he had no problem doing it--saved me a lot of time and it looked great.
