This is a holiday favorite around the TTP household, and what we had for dinner this past Sunday night. The sweet potatoes are obviously unnecessary, but it is convenient to throw them in along with the meat. I always search out the smallest sweet potato I can find. Steamed and buttered broccoli rounded out this particular meal.
We started off with a beautiful, 7 lb standing rib roast. What Meesus TTP is doing here is inserting garlic wedges within deep slits she has cut into the roast. I guess she placed 10 or 12 wedges throughout the entire piece.
Then we slathered the roast in olive oil, peppered it heavily (I like a lot of pepper), and added fresh-cut rosemary from the herb garden. We put lots of it between the ribs and the roast.
And now we have Chia roast. She went into a 350 degree oven for about 2 1/2 hours (until the internal temperature reached about 130 degrees).
Out of the oven; finally. 2 1/2 hours seems like a long wait when the smell of this baby is circulating throughout the house.
The final product. The ribs are at the 4 O’clock position.
In Health. And happy holidays —
