If you're a fan of deep-fried turkey, you'll love this deep-fried roast. You'll need a turkey pot with hook and stand or boiling basket, 1 long slim knife, like a fillet knife, along with paper towels or bread slices for soaking up the grease.

What You'll Need

  • 1 Prime Rib or large cut of beef
  • 3 gallons peanut oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground rosemary or freshly chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. The night before you plan to serve your prime rib, mix salt, pepper and rosemary and rub the meat with it liberally.
  2. Cover the meat and place it in the refrigerator overnight. The roast needs to come to room temperature before frying, so remember to remove from the refrigerator around an hour to an hour and a half before frying. Heat 3 gallons of peanut oil to 360 F.
  3. Slowly lower the prime rib into 350 F oil. You can expect the oil to drop in temperature quickly, probably down to approximately 325 F, turn the heat up on the burner to bring back up to 350 F, then level off temperature. Cook the prime rib for 3 minutes per pound of weight for medium rare steaks, or 4 minutes per pound for medium.
  1. Carefully remove from hot oil and let rest for 10 minutes, (Try using sliced bread to drain on vs. paper towels) slice and serve.

Tip: You can try this recipe for a pork roast as well. Adjust the cooking time to be 4 or 5 minutes longer per pound.
