Deep Fried Prime Rib
- 1 Prime Rib or large cut of beef
- 3 gallons peanut oil
- 2 tsp ground rosemary or freshly chopped fresh rosemary
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- paper towels or bread slices
The night before you plan to serve your priime rib mix salt, pepper and rosemary and rub the meat with it liberally. Cover the meat and place it in the refrigerator over night. The roast needs to come to room temperature before frying so remember to remove from refrigerator around an hour to an hour and a half before frying.
Heat 3 gallons of peanut oil to 360 degrees .
Slowly lower the prime rib into 360 degree oil. You can expect the oil to drop in temperature quickly, probably down to approx. 325, turn the heat up on the burner to bring back up to 350, then level off temperature.Cook the prime for 3 minutes per pound of weight for medium rare steaks. 4 minutes per pound for Medium.
Carefully remove from hot oil let rest for 10 minutes, (Try using sliced bread to drain on vs. paper towels) slice and serve. I would cook the pork roast 4 or 5 minutes longer per pound.
