The best way to deep fry prime rib is by using a cast iron skillet. You'll want to start with a room temperature piece of meat, then season it on both sides with salt and pepper. Place the meat in the preheated

Deep Fried Prime Rib

Why, yes…. Yes, I did. I deep fried a prime rib and It. Was. Amazing.

Absolutely amazing.

Like, I start to drool just thinking about it.

You see, I was going to have a big salad for dinner last week. But then, I saw a video of a bearded man frying a prime rib on facebook and basically, that was the end of that. I didn’t have salad for dinner. 😉

Yes, I know it’s not the healthiest thing in the world… but you know what? For once or twice a year for a special occasion, who cares? At least, that’s the way I look at it 🙂

Deep Fried Prime Rib

I actually like this deep fried version just a little bit better than my normal ‘bake in the oven’ recipe just because of the crust. Oh that crust…

The crust that this thing gets is the stuff fairy tales are written about. If fairy tales were written about prime rib, that is. However – a prime rib fairy tale is the kind of fairy tale I wish to be a princess in 😉

This was quite possibly the best prime rib I’ve ever tasted! It’s all about that crust that it gets – I’m just in love.

There are a few keys to getting this Deep Fried Prime Rib perfect.

  • First off, if you like your prime rib well done – from the center to the crust – this method will not work for you. This method produces a medium rare prime rib. However, if you are serving guests who do like rarer meat, you can always eat from the outside in. Meaning – the folks that like the well done sections can have the outer part & the folks that like the rarer sections can have the center.
  • Also, you’ll need a turkey fryer.
  • Make sure you start off with a completely room temperature prime rib.
  • I’ve tried this a few times now (to perfect it) & this method works better on a prime rib roast about 4.5-6.5 pounds. Once you start getting larger than that, the crust gets a little too dark before the inside is cooked.
  • Fry at 350 degrees for 4 minutes per pound – then wrap in til foil & let sit for 45 minutes before slicing. That will produce the nice medium rare results you that you see in my pictures. If you like it a little more cooked, you can add an additional 30-45 seconds per pound to the cook time & let rest for an additional 15 minutes (hour total time). T
