Top Holiday Recipes, Lightened Up: Paula’s Rib Roast
Paula’s Foolproof Standing Rib Roast is a holiday favorite. With only 4 ingredients, there’s not much more to the recipe than tossing this bad boy in the oven. Making this recipe healthier is also pretty simple.
The bone and fat help flavor your roast, but trim off some of that fat to get rid of a portion of that artery-clogging saturated fat. For some variation, choose leaner cuts of beef for around 40 calories per ounce. This will average 120 to 160 calories for a 3 to 4 ounce portion, shaving off about 105 to 140 calories per person.
