Tastefully Tueday...

Happy Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.  Contrary to how it sounds, the Day of the Dead is a family affair and is meant to remember ancestors, whose spirits come to visit the earth once a year.  Although there are many different ways to celebrate from Mexico to Brazil one thing is constant along all the celebrations; favorite foods are made for the deceased family members so that they can enjoy the company of the living for the day.  With that in mind I have chosen a favorite dish of both my parents as well as mine.

Lawry's Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef with Whipped Cream Horseradish

Roasted Prime Ribs:

1 (4-rib) standing rib roast
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1 bag (5 lb.) rock salt

Sprinkle fatty cap of roast with Seasoned Salt. In a heavy roasting pan, spread rock salt evenly over bottom.; place wire roasting rack on top of salt. Place the roast on rack, fatty side up. Make sure no salt actually touches the beef. Insert meat thermometer in thickest part of meat, making sure it does not touch bone. Roast in preheated 350-degree oven until thermometer registers 130-degrees F. for rare, 140 F. for medium, or approximately 20 to 25 minutes per pound. Remove from oven and let stand 20 minutes before carving. Using a sharp knife, slice meat across the grain for serving. Discard rock salt.

Whipped Cream Horseradish:

1 cup whipping cream
¼ teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, well drained, or 4 tablespoons finely grated fresh horseradish root
Dash Tabasco sauce

Whip cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in Lawry's Seasoned Salt, horseradish and Tabasco until well mixed.
