Birthday Prime Rib Dinner

I try to make something special for birthdays. While I dont have any children at home I do have the Mr and he loves my cooking most of the time. His latest favorite is Prime Rib. I've only made one other time, so I'm pretty new at it. I have to say though...It's pretty good! It's easy and it's impressive.
All the work is in knowing the right steps.Once you master those. You can do this without a sweat!
Here ya go!
