Prime rib is delicious, meaty, juicy, and a perfect choice for dinner, whether it is a family gathering or a date night. A perfectly cooked, pink from the inside, and juicy prime rib never disappoints! Served with mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, and a rich gravy makes it the perfect comfort food.
Having leftover prime rib is often the good news. It means you can enjoy it the next day or the day after that! But with reheating leftover prime rib, many of us face a simple and common issue. While warming it up, the juices are lost, and the prime rib ends up dried, which of course, is not as appetizing as it should be.
So, if you are wondering how to warm up prime rib so that the juiciness isn’t lost, keep reading!
How to warm up prime rib in the oven
Warming up prime rib in the oven is the easiest and the most effective way of ensuring the juiciness of the meat is maintained. Here is what you have to do:
- Place the leftover prime rib in a baking or roasting pan.
- Pour some beef broth on top. I add about ¼ cup, but you can add more depending on the size of the prime rib.
- Cover the tray with aluminum foil and place it in a preheated oven at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes. When the prime rib’s internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, you are good to go.
- Take it out of the oven and serve!
How to warm up the prime rib on the stovetop
You can warm up the prime rib on the stovetop as well. For that, you will need a steamer basket. Here is what you will have to do:
- Place the steamer basket in a pot filled with about an inch of water.
- Line the steamer basket with aluminum foil and place the prime rib in it. Fold the edges of the aluminum foil to create a dish or a pouch.
- Pour beef broth on the meat and cover the pot.
- Let it steam up for about 7 to 8 minutes or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 165 degrees.
- Take the meat out of the steamer. Enjoy!
How to warm up prime rib in the microwave
Suppose you are only left with a small portion of prime rib; it’s best to warm it up in the microwave. Here is how you can do that:
- Slice the leftover prime rib evenly. Place the slices on a microwave-safe dish and pour some beef broth on top for moisture. Make sure you don’t add a lot of broth.
- Cover the dish and place it in the microwave,
- Start the timer and let it cook. Make sure you stop after every 30 seconds for a second or two. This way, the slices will warm up evenly without drying out.
- Once the internal temperature of the meat reaches 165 degrees, take it out of the microwave and enjoy.
