Leftover Prime Rib Soup

I hope you made the most of whatever kind of Christmas you had – I am sure it was different in someway from years past. Mine was a little quieter and I think maybe a little less stressful. It usually takes me a few days to make the Christmas explosion in the house; that’s what I call it.  I take down pretty much all of my usual decor and replace it with holiday decorations including three trees; the main tree is real the others are artificial. So the trees were up and two of the main rooms had decor plus the porch. It was understated but still festive.

Hope you have a safe happy healthy and prosperous New Year!

I will be making this soup again this year. I first made this soup back in 2016 and I know I am reposting this for a third time but it had 245 recent views so I am hoping someone else is making this soup today.

I did cook my roast a little differently this year. I seasoned it with kosher salt and pepper the day before and left it uncovered in the fridge overnight. Placed it on the counter for a couple of hours before putting it in a 250’F oven for 3+ hours internal temp was 210’F. removed it for 30 minutes to let it rest on top of the stove and then raised the heat to 500’F and placed it back in the oven for 10 minutes. It came out perfect!

The only downfall to cooking it this way was there were no pan drippings to make a gravy or an aujus. I knew this would happen so instead of mashed potatoes we had twice baked which were super delicious.

I have had a cough since early November and I am sick of it! It started fast and furious and then subsided for a bit. Christmas day it decided to come back and bring with it me feeling like crap! Yesterday I spent about 12 hours lounging on the couch watching and sleeping thorough the Hallmark channel drinking several cups of tea and honey! I did make myself a pot of chicken and rice soup – I think that did the trick; I feel a little better this morning!

I am re-posting this recipe for those of you that happen to have some prime rib leftover. I think we have one piece left so who knows this soup might be happening today!

This year is going to be a quiet New Years! The last few years we had spent them in Canada with friends. I’m going to miss hanging out with them but I think it better that I stay in and not party like a rock star – gotta kick this cough thing somehow!!! Plus it being in the middle of the week is kind of a drag!

Prime Rib Leftover Soup

Happy New Year!

Depending on what you did on your last night of 2016 you might be looking for a nice and greasy hangover breakfast; maybe bacon & eggs along with some pancakes might work or if you can find it a cheeseburger and fries – I am open to either plus I wouldn’t say no to a slice of cold pizza. Or if you are a better person than I you could be going for a light but filling kind of way to start 2017; maybe some nice and creamy oatmeal, or and egg white omelet; I honestly have never had an egg white omelet but I love oatmeal.

We are spending the weekend with friends in Montreal so I am writing this before we head out. I can’t be sure but I think there might be some pancakes & bacon in my future on Jan 1

My Christmas Prime Rib had me dancing in my seat, literally I’m not kidding.  It was SO delicious and cooked to perfection I wish you all could have tasted it. When I ordered it I mentioned there would be 4 to 6 of us as I wasn’t sure if a couple of people were going to come. They guided me to order a 3 bone roast and they would remove the bones but tie them back on so it was easier for me to carve and serve. When I went to pick it up; it was HUGE (11 pounds) I almost traded it for a 2 bone but the butcher talked me into it. There were only 4 of us so we had plenty of leftovers.

I wanted to share at least one picture of my masterpiece

I recall making a quick soup out of the very last piece of beef from last years roast so I figured that was in order again for this year. I still had one of the bones so I threw that in while it was simmer to add to the flavor of the soup – well worth it.

My husband doesn’t have as good a memory as I do; or at least when I told him I was making Prime Rib Soup he was like; “well that sounds different”. Ignoring him I kept on cutting up my veggies and started sautéing the onions, celery and carrots. It comes together very quickly and it is totally worth using a slice or two of your leftovers.
