    Any good cook will tell you it takes more than just one recipe to make a dish fabulous and this recipe is a good example. I'm not crazy about cooking my prime rib with a mustard rub so I will stick with my basic salt encrusted variation, but the sauce recipe of this one is what makes this recipe stand out. Wow!!  -  12 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
