Just look at that herby, salty crusty crust! And underneath that crust is the most tender, juicy meat! This picture speaks to me. It says, “Hi friend. Please eat me for Christmas dinner.” 🎄🎅 And really, who wouldn’t want to eat a delicious herbed rib roast with red wine jus for a holiday meal?
When it comes to the holidays, easy entertaining is key. While I normally love cooking and spending time in the kitchen, I’d rather spend my holidays hanging out with family. If you’re like me, then you must make this herbed rib roast with red wine jus this holiday season! The name of this dish is fancy, but making it couldn’t be simpler. You smother the roast with a spice rub and bake it for two hours. That’s it. That means more time for you to relax and sip hot cocoa while watching Christmas movies with the family.
After two hours, you get this: a perfect medium-rare rib roast. Drizzle some red wine jus on top and you’ve got yourself a holiday-worthy meal.
Once the roast is done cooking, you’ll want to let it rest for 20 minutes before cutting into it. That way, the flavorful juices won’t run out when you slice into it. While you wait, you can quickly whip up an au jus, a thin gravy that’ll go great with your rib roast.
The red wine gravy is really easy to make and it adds a lot of flavor to the recipe. I like Pinot Noir here but you can use what you prefer. Cheers! And happy holidays! 🍷🍷
