There must be a trick. When I re-heat, to get it to a proper temp. I always end up over cooking the "wellness" of it. Example: In the fridge right now, I have a "doggie bag" (sorry Pirate, its mine) of perfectly prepared med. rare prime rib. But I know as soon as I try to re-heat it, it will end up med well.
Do any of you have a good tip to re-heat, but not additionally cook the beef?
|I don't know if that's possible, but try sealing the meat into a heavy plastic bag and putting it into a pot of simmering water. I don't cook meat but maybe this will work.|
|I **wish** microwave I totally killed my lovely prime rib in the microwave last night.|
Guess next time, I just have to have a cold prime rib sandwich!!!
Deborah, Pirate (ya shoulda just given it to me!) and Keira
|Depends on the microwave. Mine has a setting for Reheat, and another one for Dinner Plate. Both are auto sensors so I don't have to guess on timing and overdo stuff. Have used both features and they work great!
|One thing that helps is if you bring the meat to room temperature. If it has been in the fridge (obviously) it is cold, and if you stick it in the microwave or oven at that point, the outside heats first and then the center (again, obviously) but by the time the center gets warmed, the meat is overcooked.
I would suggest taking it out of the fridge about 15 minutes before you plan to reheat it. Then, wrap it in foil and stick it in the oven (at a fairly low temp for about 8 minutes. That shoud do it.
|Steph, you took the words right outta my mouth.....thats how you should do it Deb!|
|That makes a lot of sense to me. Now my husband is going to have to take me out for prime rib again|
|And there are so many good places for prime rib in Chicago! But can Tony smoke an after dinner cigar in restaurants or are they all non-smoking?
I'm telling Pirate you stiffed him on the leftovers.
|Even when smoking wasn't an issue, Tony (who is incredibly thoughtful) never smoked his cigar inside. With the exception of Lovell's in Lake Forest. They have a special cigar smoking room.|
Pirate and Keira did benefit from the primerib/steak dinner we had. They both got little bits and pieces!
|Well, I not that good a cook but, never reheat and beef in a microwave!!!!Ever. Makes it tough and dry, Right??
OK, this works
Take out of fridge about 30 minutes before reheating. Put meat and any juice left from cooking or brought home in the go-box in a aluminum foil pouch add about a teaspoon of water and seal as good as you can, not air tight. Grill works best but can do in an oven. Start warming about 250 or on upper rack of grill on low. After about 20 minutes put down on bottom rack or turn oven to 350 untill you can just hear it start to sizzle. Ready to eat and tastes as good as ever.
Hope it works.
|Bob, thanks for digging this topic up again. This situation has caused me great frustration.|
I will give your method a try!
|Woo-hoo!!! I did it! Last night I made my first prime rib and it turned out great. Dinner party for fifteen. Now today my inlaws are joining us for left-overs. I wouldn't have thought to put the left-over au-jus back in. Also, it makes alot of sense to bring meat to room temp. prior to oven. Thanks to this site I'm hoping to be successful in the reheating proccess.|
|Wow Jil! That was a huge undertaking! Primerib for 15! I'm not far from WI, you shoulda invited me |
So, glad it worked out!
|this reheated the prime rib perfectly: use the reheat 'sensor' setting on microwave(mine is a Viking but they are all made by the same company).|
|I add alittle water and microwave at 50% power, watching it all the time.|
