Herb Crusted Prime Rib With Garlic Confit Mashed Sauce

Procedure:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. For the garlic confit, arrange garlic in a small oven proof dish. Season with salt and pepper and pour oil. Cover with foil and cook in the oven for 1 hour. Mash garlic and set aside separately from the oil.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine all the herb crust ingredients. Mix well. Set aside.
  4. Pat dry meat with paper towel. Rub both sides of meat with herb crust mixture. Set aside.
  5. In a medium size pan over high heat, add butter and oil. Brown meat for 2 minutes on each side then roast in the oven for 20 minutes covered with foil. Set aside and rest meat for 5 minutes.
  6. On a white plate, arrange cooked meat. Put mashed garlic on top of meat and pour oil from the garlic confit. Serve with mashed potato or mix vegetable on the side.
