I apologize for yet another prime rib thread. I remember reading about this somewhere around here but a few searches have failed to find the discussion.
My contribution to Christmas dinner is a 7 pound prime rib roast. We are having the meal at my sister's house which is about 10 minutes from here. The recipe I use calls for cooking it at 450 for 30 minutes and then at 350 for another hour and a half or until done. I pull it at 110 degrees F and let it rest for at least half an hour before carving.
If I do it at her house, I would have to put it in the oven as soon as we got there. I have a feeling that it will be filled with appetizers at least when we get there. Can/should I start cooking it here? The plan is to get there at 2 and eat at 5pm. Can I cook the whole thing in advance and hold it in a cooler?
Thanks for any input!
