Prime rib one of the great jewels of cooking, made better through sous vide. A rich, red-wine sauce only heightens the magic of low and slow sous vide rib.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 8 hrs
  • Yields: 4-6 servings


3 lbs four inch thick boneless prime rib roast

kosher salt and pepper to taste

1 sprig of fresh thyme

1 cup of your favourite dry red wine

1/2 tbsp of butter

2 finely minced shallots

2Season your prime rib liberally with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

3In a vacuum-sealable bag place the prime rib and seal

4Cook the prime rib for 8 hours

5Prior to serving heat a pan to medium heat and the butter

6When frothing add the shallots and cook until soft, 2 to 3 minutes

7Add the red wine and reduce over medium heat, about ten minutes

8Remove the prime rib from the water bath, pat dry and retain the cooking liquid
