It isn't the holidays without a bountiful cut of meat adorning the center of the table.  This prime rib get its flavorful crust from a paste of mashed garlic, horseradish, rosemary, and thyme.

There's so much to be said for the perfect paring of Yorkshire pudding and roast beef, which is why the chefs at the Food Network make this traditional English treat using one critical ingredient:  the savory pan drippings left behind by a roasted prime rib.
