This holiday season, serve your roast beef with one of my Best Sauces for Prime Rib! These easy sauce recipes make the perfect pairing with prime rib roast and bring out the best flavor in the beef. Best of all, each one is easy to make in a minimal amount of time using simple ingredients.
Picking the Perfect Prime Rib Sauce
My family and I love prime rib over the holiday season. It is so rewarding to cook and serve a beautiful, juicy rib roast and see smiles light up around the table. I find one of the best ways to make a slow roasted prime rib even more enjoyable is to serve it with the perfect sauce.
There are plenty of sauces for prime rib to choose from. To pick the perfect one, ask yourself how you want to bring out the flavor of the beef and what will work best alongside the side dishes you're serving.
For example, the classic au jus fits every dish and emphasizes the flavor of the beef beautifully without adding much contrast. It's made using pan drippings from the roast! Meanwhile, creamy horseradish sauce offers an intensely delicious flavor of its own that adds a perfect kick to the beef and goes oh-so well with mashed potatoes.
No matter which prime rib sauce you choose, I guarantee you will love the results. Let me know your favorite in the comments below!
