My mother used to serve the following mushroom dish with prime rib,
along with baked potatoes. They'd probably go well with any beef
dish -- I still haven't had a chance to make them myself, but I
remember them as being excellent:

Herb Buttered Mushrooms

1 pound fresh white mushrooms
1/4 C. chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 T. butter
2 T. dry cooking sherry
1 T. snipped fresh basil OR
1 tsp. dried basil, crushed
1/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

Clean mushrooms and cut in half. In large skillet, melt butter
over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion and garlic, cook until
mushrooms and onion are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in
sherry and spices, cook additional 2-3 minutes or until heated
through. Wonderful with prime rib roast.

I haven't made it from scratch yet, (forgive me), but last time I tried
frozen Szechuan vegetables made by that big green guy. (Or was it that
bird guy)?


I like those, I bought 3 today (on sale, dontcha know). I have that
for lunch now and again. I don't know that I'd have them with prime
rib, myself, I hardly notice anything else when that is on the menu.

I've *got* to make them one of these days. But I promised Buddy
we'd try the Tolkien Society's mushrooms first (because they have
bacon in them). Here's that recipe, if anyone is interested -- I'm
going to make them with a dry roasted hunk o' beef sometime next
week:

Mrs M's Bacon and Mushrooms - Tolkien Society

* Button mushrooms - two good handfuls sliced for each person
* Bacon - 4 - 6 rashers of back bacon per person
* Onions - 2 or 3 sliced into rings (optional)
* Lots of fresh and very crusty bread OR
taters, boiled and sprinkled with freshly chopped parsley

Method:

If using taters with this meal prepare and start them cooking before
cooking bacon. Then, in a large frying pan fry bacon gently and let
fat run. Remove and keep warm in oven.

Add onion to bacon fat and cook until golden brown. Remove and keep
warm.

Add mushrooms to pan. You may need to add some butter or oil to pan
at this stage to help mushrooms cook. Do not cook too fast. When
mushrooms are softened and cooked (doesn't take very long) dish up
and serve with plenty of crusty bread to mop up the juices.

This recipe and other Middle Earth inspired fare are available at:

Yum. Not too shabby with steak, either, or even hamburgers.

Default Side dish for Prime Rib

I keep going back to my version of Harvest Potatoes as a favorite side
dish.

I often make mashed potatoes using all Irish potatoes, but throw in one
Yam, to add a pretty color. And a nice flavor.

I also like to mix in grated cheddar cheese, sliced green onion, sour
cream, fennel, and caraway seed. They're especially nice with Roast
Beast;-)

I also like a nice salad with that and/or green beans with bacon,
onion, and slivered almonds.

Roasted vegetables: Peel onions, carrots, small potatoes, and small turnips.
Cut into bite-sized chunks. Remove core, ribs, and seeds from a yellow bell
pepper or two and cut into bite-sized chunks. Put into a baking pan and
drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper and toss to
coat.

Scrub some beets well, drizzle with oil, and put into a separate pan.

Put both pans into the oven with the roast. (They don't have to be on the
same shelf.) Cook until vegetables are tender, then remove from the oven.
(The beets might take longer than the other vegetables. That's one reason
they're in a separate pan. The other reason is that you don't want them
bleeding all over the other vegetables.)

Cut the top and tip off the beets, then slip off the skins and cut into
wedges. Sprinkle the beets with coarse salt and pepper.

I'll also second the recommendation of creamed spinach.

I'd normally recommend Yorkshire pudding or a savory garlic bread pudding to
accompany prime rib, but they're not what I'd call VEGETABLE side dishes, so
maybe that's not what you want.


Bob
