Blackened Prime Rib is made by using the Blackening cooking technique. Slice a generous serving of previously roasted Prime Rib, dip it in melted butter, dredge it in a mixture of herbs and spices and then cook it in a very hot cast-iron skillet. Serve it with some au jus, horseradish sauce and your favorite sides.
