Earlier in the week I was going through the freezer and found a rib roast with a date of 2014 on it. Normally I would save something like this for a special occasion but, given its age, decided I might as well cook it up. Once it thawed, I used a dry rub of kosher salt, garlic, cracked pepper, thyme, and rosemary and let it sit in the fridge a couple of days to get it seasoned all the way through. It came out great. Probably the best rib roast I've ever made. I think letting it sit for two days with the spice rub really enhanced the flavor.
Oh, and I also had some leftover coleslaw, too. It was funny because I took the roast out of the oven and realized that was all I had cooked. No side dishes. I guess with a good roast you don't really need any sides, but I finished up the slaw anyway.
It was a good sized roast. I'll probably be eating off this bad boy for the next three days.
