How to Reheat Prime Rib

Three Methods:

Prime rib can be difficult to reheat, as you don't want to overcook the meat. You also want to maintain its original juiciness. The methods included in this article, such as steaming it or heating it in the oven, help maintain the prime rib's original flavor even on the second day.


Steaming Slices of Prime Rib

  1. Make a foil pouch.Pull out a sheet of foil, and curve up the edges. Lay the prime rib in the foil pouch.
  2. Add several tablespoons of broth.You can use beef broth or the juice from the cooked prime rib.
  3. Close the pouch.Seal up the pouch so that the juices don't escape.
  4. Place the pouch in a steamer.Cover the steamer tightly with a lid.
  5. Heat the prime rib for 3 to 6 minutes.You may need to heat it longer if the piece is large.
  6. Remove it from the pouch and serve.. Be sure to put a plate under the pouch, as juices are sure to leak.

Reheating a Single Piece of Prime Rib in the Oven

  1. Set the oven at 250 degrees.Give it time to warm up.
  2. Place the piece in a small pan.Pour in several tablespoons of beef broth. Cover it tightly with foil or a lid, and put it in the oven.
  3. Cook until the meat reaches your desired doneness.It should take 10 minutes or so, depending on how rare you like it.
    • To check for doneness, you can use a meat thermometer. Meat is rare if the internal temperature reaches 120 to 125 degrees Fahrenheit. Medium rare is 130 to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, while medium is 140 to 145 degrees Fahrenheit and medium well is 150 to 155 degrees Fahrenheit. Well done is 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Stick the thermometer into the middle part of the slice to measure the temperature. However, reheating temperatures will vary slightly.
  4. Pull the meat from the oven.Set the pan on the counter.
  5. Heat up a skillet to high heat.Add some fat, such as butter. Let the meat sear to crisp up the outside. You want the outside to be brown.
  6. Serve the meat.Add the juices from the pan to the top of the meat for extra flavor.

Heating the Prime Rib in the Microwave

  1. Place the meat in a microwave-safe bowl with a lid.Add a few tablespoons of broth or au jus and cover it.
  2. Heat the meat for 1 to 2 minutes.This step depends on the strength of your microwave.
  3. Don't let the meat become too hot.You don't want to overcook it. Keep it rare, medium rare, or medium.
  4. Take the meat out.Serve with the juices.

    How do I reheat the whole prime rib roast?

    This would be too big for a microwave, so you can preheat an oven to about 350 and put it in for 5 minutes. You may need to add some water or beef broth to the pan to keep it from drying out. You should also cover the rib roast with foil to keep it from burning.

    Can I slow cook the ribs of a prime rib along with some leftover pieces of the rib?

    Sure -- just be sure you trim off all the excess fat. Put it in your crockpot and let it cook slowly for about six hours. Add a little barbecue sauce, and you have yourself a fantastic meal.

If you'd prefer to reheat it in the oven, start by putting the prime rib in a pan with some broth and then covering the pan with foil.
