Down & Dirty Prime Rib

Down & Dirty Prime Rib because most folks think this cut of meat is way too expensive and way too difficult. Patti was at the market the other day to buy hamburger which was $4.35 a pound, next to it was prime rib roast at $4.77 a pound. A definite “no brainer”. Plus, our gas grill has a rotisserie. Perfect! We used our Date Night…

Topped off with Patti’s zesty bacon sausage stuffed mushrooms.…
