Homemade Au Jus

I made a fantastic prime rib on my Char-Broil Big Easy the other day. I needed a rockin’ good homemade au jus to go with it. And this is it. I couldn’t get enough drippings off the rib roast to make an au jus, so this was the next-best-thing. Great beefy flavor.
Homemade au jusThis recipe for homemade au jus makes a pretty good sized batch (about 3 cups or so), but if you’re like me you’ll use a good amount.

I also made a kickin’ Sriracha horseradish sauce for the prime rib. The entire dinner was absolutely fantastic. I still dream about it.
