The orange flavored marinade in this recipe not only tenderizes the prime rib roast but also adds a lot of delicious flavor. Take it out of the marinade and put it on the grill to slow roast with a touch of smoky flavor to make this the best prime rib you have ever had.

What You'll Need

  • 1 prime rib roast (5-7 pounds/2.3-3.2 kg)
  • 1 cup/240 mL beer
  • 1/3 cup/80 mL​ orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL sea salt

How to Make It

Mix together all ingredients, except roast, in a medium mixing bowl. With a fork, pierce holes into roast and place in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over roast, seal bag, and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill for medium-low heat. Remove meat from plastic bag and reserve marinade. Add wood chips according to manufacturer's recommendations. Place rib roast on grill rack.

Be sure to have a drip pan filled with an inch of water underneath. Cook for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, adding fresh wood chips every 30 minutes, and brushing with reserved marinade for the first 1 to 1 1/2 hours of cooking time. Look for an internal temperature of 135 degrees F/60 degrees C for medium rare or 145 degrees F/65 degrees C for medium. When done, remove roast from grill and let stand for 10-15 minutes before carving.
