    Two questions for you: On average, what does an 8lb. roast run pricewise and would I have to order from my butcher in advance? How many servings can I get out of a prime rib that big? 8 lbs. of beef sounds like a lot of meat to me and could probably go a long way...guess it depends on how you slice it up, huh?

    Follow up question: Slice the remaining pieces of Roast Beef, heat the leftover gravy, toast some bread, cut them into points (triangles), plate them for individual servings, pile the Beef and gravy over the toast. Quick hot dinner and serve a salad with it....~Noir

    A very good cut of beef should be served Rare to Medium for the flavor and of course the spices & juices. I may not understand your question, did you not serve the *center of the Roast*? If that is the case, you may want to make Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches with gravy and leftovers!:)

    Well, I did it! This wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. After the roast was room temperature I stabbed it several times and shoved whole garlic into it. I trued slivering the garlic but my nails are too long so that didn’t work.

    Then I baked the roast 15 minutes at 400 then turned it down to 350. After an hour or so I remembered I had a digital thermometer so I stabbed that into the center of the roast (certainly a lot of stabbing going on here) and set the alarm for 120 degrees. Well, this was taking way too long so I turned up the heat to 355 and waited. . . .

    When the center was 115 degrees I decided this was close enough so I removed the roast and let it rest for about 20 minutes.

    I cut slices from each end and served it with mashed potatoes and gravy I made from the roaster. Nothing fancy went into the gravy, just water and flour.

    My company was oh so properly impressed!

    Thank you for all your help.

    However, I have another situation: what do I do with the 3” of very rare prime rib left from the center of the roast?

    This looks so simple. Since Costco frozen food section has been our dinners of choice for years I'm really nervous about actually cooking! I've already ordered the prime rib so I've committed my self. (after cooking I may just do that!)
