Don't Let Your Prime Rib Go to Waste! Here's How to Reheat It
Here are three different ways to reheat prime rib, depending on how you slice it.Unfortunately, prime rib doesn't lend itself as easily to reheating as other leftover standbys like turkey or ham. That's because unlike turkey or ham, the prime rib's signature fresh, juicy taste can be lost in the reheating process. Though it's not as easy as throwing your leftovers in the microwave (which you can still do — very carefully), reheating prime rib the right way is worth the effort to get a second helping of your tender and flavorful meal. So if you want to know how to reheat prime rib the proper way, here are some options depending on how much you have left.
When tasked with cooking for guests, a goodalways satisfies. It's a classic. However, if you're only cooking for two, an entire roast chicken can be time consuming and serves way more than just two.
What if we told you that you could have it all? Well, you can! A Cornish hen comes together in under an hour, and it serves 2 perfectly. Oh, did we mention you can roast a veggie side at the same time?! That's date night perfection right there. Check out how to make the perfect Cornish hen below, we bet it's so much easier than you'd expect.
Your Complete Christmas Dinner Planning Guide
Special occasions call for extraordinary food. Whether your gathering is big or small, casual or formal, here's everything you need to create a crowd-pleasing holiday feast. The post Your Complete Christmas Dinner Planning Guide appeared first on Taste of Home.
1. Season The Hen
Like all the most delicious things, we like to brush our Cornish hen with butter before it roasts. For seasoning, we keep it relatively simple: salt, pepper, and a nice hearty herb like thyme or rosemary (or both!). To be sure the hen is seasoned through, don't forget to season generously inside the cavity as well!
2. Stuff The Cavity
To infuse even more flavor into your hen, stuff the cavity. Keep it simple with lemon and herbs, or experiment with other citrus like limes or mandarin oranges and other alliums like garlic or shallots. Whatever you love with chicken will most certainly work here.
3. Tuck The Wings
Since we like roasting our hens at a high temperature, it's important we protect the wings from charring to a crisp. Tucking the wings under the hen allows even browning and cooking no matter what temperature you're roasting at.

4. Tie The Legs
Trussing a chicken is about more than just looks! Not only does it insure the hen cooks evenly, it also helps the hen retain moisture, leading to tender, fall-off-the-bone meat. Don't skip it!
5. Transfer To Baking Dish
We love a 2-in-1 dinner. Roasting our veggie side with our hen couldn't be easier—simply scatter your potatoes (or parsnips, carrots, onions, or sweet potatoes!) in a shallow baking dish and coat with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, then gently place your trussed hen on top. Besides being a delicious side, the veggies help elevate the hen, allowing air to circulate around the bird for a more even roast. Win/win!
6. Get Roasting!
Pop your dish in a 425° oven and roast for 50 minutes, or until potatoes are golden and tender and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the hen reads 160°. Tent with foil and let rest 10 minutes before carving and serving.
Crown Roast Is a Dinner Party Superstar
It feeds up to 16 people, depending on what you roast, looks fancy, and tastes great.It took about two years to finally make a change. I thought about the homes I most loved going to, dining at. Hostesses who seemed ever at ease and spent more time at the table than in the kitchen. I started to pick up on tricks and tips, like serving dishes that were slow-cooked, braised, or made ahead and reheated. Dishes that were served room temperature or cold. Family style and buffets instead of plated, simple little nibbles instead of elaborate hors d’oeuvres. The ease of a giant pot of stew or chili or soup, served with a salad and crusty bread.
Et violá! The perfect dinner for two. Pour yourself a glass of chilled dry white wine for a job well done.
