We bought a 7 pound rib roast the other day, and decided to check online for recipes. Emeril Lagasse seemed like a good way to go, since we used to watch him on TV and always enjoyed his wisecracks and daring use of hot sauces. We’ve tried a number of his recipes in the past and they always seem to work.
Here’s the recipe we found:
- One 6 pound rib eye roast, bone-in
- Salt and cracked black pepper
- 2 cups vegetable oil
- 2 each whole jalapenos, minced
- 1/4 cup chopped garlic
- 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Season the roast with salt and pepper. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil, jalapenos, onions, garlic, and cilantro. Mix well. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Place the roast, bone up, in a large roasting pan, pour the marinade over the roast, coating the entire roast completely. Refrigerate the roast overnight. Remove the roast from the refrigerator and pour off the marinade. Place the pan in the oven and roast for 30 minutes. Turn the oven down temperature to 325 degrees F. Roast for about 2 hours for medium-rare. Remove the roast from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Slice the roast into individual steaks and serve.
We followed the recipe verbatim.
When we got up in the morning, we removed the roast from the fridge. The oven was nice and hot by this time, having had the entire night to reach 400 degrees.
There is definitely something wrong with this. Have you figured it out yet?
Emeril forgot to include onions in his list of ingredients! Yes! He mentions combining the other ingredients on the list with “onions.” But, Emeril, how many??
We figured it was too late to submit the question online, so we just guessed on the onion quantity.
I’ll report on the finished product in a subsequent post. I hope we didn’t use too many onions . . .
