Drunken Beef

Prime rib sandwhichAs you might recall, it was not too long ago that I made a prime rib. This six pounder fed my entire family, made two batches of french onion soup that served 10, and allowed me to make this next recipe. Now, members of my family have talked about this one for some time so it was up to me to figure out what all the hype was about. This is another one of those recipes that takes very little time and is really amazing. Perfect sandwich, and you get some great au jus to boot.

Ingredients:

  • Prime rib
  • 12 oz bottle of dark beer
  • 6 cloves of garlic, lightly whacked with a knife
  • salt and pepper
  • Slices of provolone cheese
  • Italian or French bread
  • appetite

In a casserole dish, add thin slices of your prime rib. Now with my leftovers, I had to remove some of the garlic horseradish that came along for the ride. I did not want that flavor mixed into the beer and garlic. Once you have all of the beef in place, add the whole cloves of garlic, pinch of salt, few grinds of fresh ground pepper, and yes, the bottle of dark beer. Cover with foil. I let the beef get drunk for about an hour. Why? I don’t know, but I do know that it made the beef, as well as myself, very happy. Now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and cook the beef for roughly 30 minutes or so.

Remove the dish from the oven and replace with the bread, cooking until it gets a light golden brown, then quickly remove, and add your slices of provolone cheese to cover the bread. Place back into the oven until bubbly. Remove, add the prime rib, and get ready to rumble. I used a ladle to serve the garlic beer and used that as my au jus. It seriously rocked. Remember, it’s all good.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
