Tender Low-FODMAP Bourbon Marinated Prime Rib Roast; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Print Friendly Version

Tender, juicy and so delicious.  Prime Rib is a classic delicacy.  We love to have this on our special birthday dinners, holiday feasts or other fancy occasions. Some call this style of meat ‘roast beef’, and indeed both roast beef and prime rib are pretty much the same cut, with possible variations in the cooking method.

This low-FODMAP Prime Rib recipe is marinated for extra flavor and slow cooked to ensure a rich and tasty meal.

Enjoy this low-FODMAP Bourbon Marinated Prime Rib with boiled potatoes or my low-FODMAP Creamy Mashed Potatoes, low-FODMAP Gravy and low-FODMAP Traditional Dinner Rolls.

  • 1 standing rib roast (about 4 lbs, 1.8 kg)
