Succulent Prime Rib Recipe With Vegetables: A Spectacular Prime Rib for Christmas Dinner

Who says the prime rib has to be the only star of the show? The vegetables in this easy prime rib recipe soak up all the flavors from the roast, making them super flavorful. The meat and vegetables would taste amazing drizzled with this horseradish sauce recipe.

Be sure to allow time for the baked prime rib to rest at least 30 minutes before carving. This lets the juices settle back into the meat, keeping it moist and flavorful. Use the leftovers to make a prime rib sandwich the next day! 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: approximately 75 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes (approximately) 
Servings: 10 to 12


  • 1 prime rib roast (about 5 pounds), at room temperature 
  • 6 - 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 - 5 Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 3 carrots, cut into chunks 
  • 3 ribs celery, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced or chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a bowl, combine the butter, garlic and herbs. Mix well. 
  2. Put all the vegetables into a roasting pan. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with the olive oil.  
  3. Season the roast all over with salt and pepper. Set the roast on top of the vegetables. Rub the butter mixture all over the prime rib. 
  4.  Bake in a preheated 450-degree F oven for about 45 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F and continue baking until internal temperature reaches desired doneness, about 30 minutes more. Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest at least 20 minutes before slicing.
