Deep Fried Prime Rib
Recipe by: Culinary Cafe\' and BBQGuide
1 Prime Rib or large cut of beef
3 gallons peanut oil
1 turkey pot with hook and stand or boiling basket
2 tsp ground rosemary or freshly chopped fresh rosemary
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
paper towels or bread slices
1 long slim knife, like a fillet knife
The night before you plan to serve your prime 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 Fahrenheit.
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 did a variation of this using a 3/4\" Prime Rib steak in my Delonghi
deep fryer. It took TWO MINUTES to cook this to a medium rare/rare
doneness. It WAS very good and you HAVE to use the peanut oil. NO
EXCEPTIONS! Be careful not to burn down the house!
