Beef rib joint is marinated in a mixture of ginger, marmalade, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, hot sauce, mustard and beer. This marinade tenderises the meat. It is the roasted to perfection. Serve on special occasions or Sunday lunch.
Rib of beef (or beef rib, on the bone) may be purchased from your local butchers.
Made this for Christmas dinner. It was the only disappointment of the evening. I believe this could be very good if used on a less-expensive cut of meat. As it was, not enough of the original meat flavors came through; the marinade was too strong. - 31 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I served this for Christmas Eve dinner. I didn't have any fresh ginger, so I used a tsp. ground ginger. It turned out wonderful. I poured the pan drippings through a metal sieve to remove the marmalade (and other) chunks, then mixed it with a package of instant gravy mix and the gravy was incredible too. My husband said this was the best prime rib he has ever tasted! My in-laws really seemed to enjoy it. My son, who was tired and cranky that evening, refused to eat everything else on his plate, but he ate all his meat!! I have never made roast beef before, but this recipe was really easy and very, very good. - 31 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
WOW!!! Having lost my Father this past July, I knew it would be my job to take on the Christmas dinner. I found this recipe and the rest is history. All 23 people were amazed at how wonderful this roast tasted. My Dad would of been so proud of me.. Thanks! - 12 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
