If you want to fix this, but it's too much for your family, please call me. Jack and I will rush right over with our Merlot.

Made exactly as written. Wouldn't change a thing! Made for Aussie Swap #14.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 prime rib roast
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • salt & pepper


  1. Remove the rost from the refrigerator 2-4 hours before cooking. This should be at room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  3. Put roast in shallow roasting pan, fat side up.
  4. Sprinkle with flour and rub flour into the fat.
  5. Season with salt and lots of fresh ground pepper.
  6. Put roast in hot oven and bake according to weight, about 5 minutes per pound. For a 4-1/2 - 5 pound roast 25-30 minutes; for an 8-9 pound roast 40-45 minutes; for an 11-12 pound roast 55-60 minutes.
  7. When cooking time is finished, turn off the oven.
  9. Allow roast to remain in oven until oven is lukewarm, about 2 hours.
  10. This method of cooking the prime rib will ensure a crunchy brown outside, and the internal heat will be suitable for serving (yum!) medium rare beef for as long as 4 hours.
