Everything goes with prime rib! Seriously though:

Oven roasted potatoes
Asparagus (steamed then lightly grilled and brushed with garlic butter)
Light salad, greens with vinaigrette

I agree w/Alix, except for the asparagus (not a fan). Don't forget some grated horseradish for the meat as well.

I prefer baked potatoes with sour cream, chives and bacon and a Caesar salad.

Sub buns and cheese whiz!

Or, if you don't want to shave it and turn it into a Philly Cheese Steak... I would serve baked potatoes and something green like asparagus, broccoli or sautéed brussel sprouts. Lobster goes very well, too

I'm with Steve and Andy here. Grilled onions (maybe even carmelized!) make a great addition too.

Oh, yeah, mushrooms. Nice and simple, sautéed in butter where nothing but the flavor of the shrooms burst in your mouth. Leave them whole or just halve them and serve them on the side. Sliced mushrooms are for toppings and hamburgers. Good call, Steve.

Oven roasted potatoes are baked potatoes without the skins. They get all crispy on the outside so you can eat the whole thing. Mmmmmm.

I think you should do one of Tattrat's suggestions on the side veggie. Holy moly. Those brussels sprouts sound heavenly.
