Herb Butter Rubbed Prime Rib

Each family member at Hunk House is responsible for a different Holiday Dinner. Reba (my mother) makes a devine Easter Dinner, I knock out an all star Thanksgiving Feast and Pap rules them all with his Christmas Masterpiece. Our Christmas meal usually consists of Prime Rib and Crab Legs with various different sides. Usually Pap makes his tried and true Prime Rib recipe but this year he has discovered the Tasty section by Buzzfeed. He is constantly tagging me on Facebook in countless mouthwatering Tasty recipes. We have yet to be disappointed by a single recipe we have tried and their “Prime Rib with Garlic Butter” Recipe is no exception. We gave the new recipe a try this year and I think its safe to say that there is no going back. This recipe is so simple and packed with subtle but rich flavors that makes it impossible to leave a single bite left on your plate.
