Have you ever had fried prime rib? It's a taste you won't soon forget and worth doing at least once to have the experience. You might wonder about the benefits of a deep-fried ribeye roast, but it's a dry heat method that works well for a tender cut such as this. It cooks hot and fast, when compared to traditional roasting, and the exterior develops a flavorful crust. It's a great beef main dish.
If you're a fan of deep-fried turkey, you'll love this deep-fried roast. You'll need a turkey pot with hook and stand or boiling basket, one long slim knife, like a fillet knife, along with paper towels or bread slices for soaking up the grease.
Serve with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted or steamed broccoli with some Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
Gather the ingredients.
The night before you plan to serve prime rib, mix salt, pepper, and rosemary together and rub liberally onto meat.
Cover meat and place in refrigerator overnight.
The roast needs to come to room temperature before frying, so remember to remove it from refrigerator around an hour to an hour and a half before frying.
Heat 3 gallons of peanut oil to 360 F.
Slowly lower prime rib into the oil. You can expect oil to drop in temperature quickly, likely down to approximately 325 F. Turn the burner's heat to bring back up to 350 F and level off the temperature.
Cook prime rib for 3 minutes per pound of weight for medium-rare steaks or 4 minutes per pound for medium.
Carefully remove from hot oil and let rest for 10 minutes.
Try using sliced bread to drain on instead of paper towels.
Let rest for a few minutes and then slice.
- You can try this recipe for a pork roast as well. Adjust the cooking time to 4 or 5 minutes longer per pound.
How to Store and Freeze Deep-Fried Prime Rib
You can keep deep-fried prime rib in the refrigerator for three to five days as long as it's well wrapped. It's delicious cold on a sandwich, or you can reheat it in a low oven (350 F) wrapped in foil, until it's completely hot.
Freeze prime rib wrapped in foil and stored in zip-close freezer bags for up to three months. Defrost in the refrigerator and cook as you'd like.
