Rib Eye Roast!!!
Sun Nov 20, 2011 9:01 pmFood.com Groupie
So at my new job, they have Rib Eye Roast, bone in, for $6.99/lb. They are so gorgeous! How do you cook them? Do you do them in the crock pot or what. That is such a great price. I need help!!

Whoa! Step away from the crockpot! A ribeye roast is a prime rib roast without the bones. It is naturally tender and doesn't benefit from being cooked in a slow cooker. It does best dry roasted in the oven. You can use any recipe for a prime rib in the database. It will just cook a little faster because it is boneless.
According to The Meat Source:
"Rib Eye Roast
Alternative Names: Boneless Rib Roast
The rib eye roast comes from the rib section consisting of ribs 6 through 12, it is basically a prime rib roast with the bones removed. Depending on where you live this roast in some locations is simply called boneless rib roast. The rib is a naturally tender, rich flavored cut that is enjoyed by beef lovers worldwide.
To bring out additional flavor and produce a more buttery texture you can dry age the roast for a few days. Age the beef in the refrigerator by leaving it uncovered on a wire rack over a pan to catch the drippings for at least a day or as long as 3-4 days. When you are ready to cook the rib roast, trim off any dried pieces after the aging. It is common for a roast to lose 5%-15% of its weight during the aging.
Rib Eye Roast Recipes
Rib eye roast can be cooked at different temperatures with different results. I will discuss two ways that yield good results. The first way is my favorite, there is a little more work involved ad it takes a little longer but for me its worth it. The second method is a quicker and easier method which will please most but not quite as juicy from center to outer edge. Many of the finest restaurants that serve boneless rib roast use low temperatures to achieve those great juicy beefy flavors. In my experience cooking rib roast at higher temperatures of the 350-450 degree range will cause a roast to dry out on the outer parts and shrink anywhere form 3/4 to 1lb or more depending on the size of the roast by the time its done cooking.
A low temperature of 250 degrees will cook the meat evenly through from the center to the outer edge without any drying out, leaving the meat tender and juicy. You might be concerned about the possibility of bacteria and it has been shown that this way of cooking is actually safe but to have piece of mind there is a way to solve this and at the same time give the roast a nice brown surface. Bacteria grows from the outside and a way to get rid of bacteria is to sear the roast first. Searing the roast will seal in the juices and look very appealing when being served.
1. An hour before cooking, remove the rib eye roast from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature.
2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and set the rack to the lower middle position. Take a heavy bottomed roasting pan and set the pan on 1 burner or 2 burners if you have a large pan and set the temperature to medium-high. Once the pan is hot sear the roast on all sides for 1.5 - 2 minutes per side. A large heavy skillet can also be used to sear the roast.
3. Carefully remove the roast, set a wire rack in center of the roasting pan and place roast fat side up on the rack. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook uncovered.
4. Cooking rib eye roast to a temperature of 135-140 degrees (medium-rare) for maximum flavor and tenderness will give you a tender juicy roast or 140-150 degrees (medium) but no more, anything more will begin to dry out the roast. Depending on the size of the roast it will take 25-30 minutes per pound, so you must have an instant-read thermometer to make sure you don't overcook. Remove roast from oven and tent with foil. Let it rest at least 15- 20 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute themselves evenly throughout the roast. When cooking at 250 degrees the roast will only rise another 2 degrees or so during the resting time. Cut crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices on platter and serve.
Below is a cooking chart for ribeye roast. Remember you should always use an instant-read thermometer to check the doneness of a roast. In method A because a temperature of 250 degrees is used the temperature will only rise about 2-4 degrees during resting time.
Doneness Description Meat Thermometer Reading
Rare = Red with cold, soft center 125-130 degrees
Medium-Rare = Red with warm, somewhat firm center 135-140 degrees
Medium = Pink and firm throughout 140-150 degrees
Medium-well = Pink line in center, quite firm 150-165 degrees
Well-done = Gray-brown throughout and completely firm 160-165 degrees
Ribeye Roast Recipe
The second method is a non-risky way to cook a rib eye roast, it will give you a tender, juicy roast that won’t embarrass you.
1. An hour before cooking, remove the roast from the refrigerator to bring it to room temperature.
2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Season with salt and pepper, place meat fat side up on rack in roasting pan. Roast meat 15 minutes.
3. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F and roast for about 15-18 minutes per pound. Roast meat until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of meat registers 135-140°F (medium-rare), which will give you maximum flavor and tenderness or 140-150°F (medium) but no more, anything more will begin to dry out the roast. Remove from oven, tent with foil and let stand at least 15-20 minutes.
The internal temperature will rise about 5-10 degrees during resting time. Remove the rib eye roast 5-10 degrees before the desired doneness. Remember you should always use an instant-read thermometer to check the doneness of a roast.

I agree on the dry roasting - braising would be such a waste.
I would also buy extra and cut them up into steaks. Great deal!

EZ ROASTING RECIPE
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Bake Time: 15 minutes per rib or 5 minutes per pound
Rest Time: 1 to 2 hours in the oven on "off."
When you buy a rib roast, calculate that one rib will serve 2 persons, so for six, you will need a 3-rib roast, without the short ribs.
The timetable for roasting by the following method is approximately 15 minutes per rib, or 5 minutes per pound of trimmed, ready to cook meat. For example, a 3-rib roast, weighing 8 to 9 pounds, will roast for 40 to 45 minutes.
Bring the roast to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 500° F. Place the roast in a shallow roasting pan.
To protect your oven from spattering fat, place a tent of aluminum foil loosely over the top of the meat. Roast according to the above timetable, following the minutes exactly. If you have a timer; set it to remind you.
When the cooling time ends, turn off the oven heat, but do not open the door. Allow the roast to remain in the oven for at least 1 hour; or until the oven is lukewarm, about 2 hours.
The roast will be beautifully rare inside and retain a crunchy outside and an internal heat suitable for serving for as long as 4 hours.
