Again Kittencal, another wonderful base recipe! There were a couple of changes that were necessary for my family. 1) I dry aged the roast myself for 3 days; 2) cut down the garlic by about 1/2 (a couple of my family members are not fond of garlic) 3) cooked only until thermometer read 127 degrees (carry over got it to medium on the ends of the roast but the center was a perfect medium rare) and 4) made gravy rather than au jus to pair with the Yorkshire pudding I served. Wonderful "crust" on the outside could not have been better. YUMMMM!!!

Delicious! Tender and flavorful. My first ever attempt at a roast, and it was guest-worthy! I put minced garlic in the holes I poked when I took the roast out of the fridge to rest (step 3), so there was no prep-work the day before, and I don't think the recipe suffered at all from it. We all enjoyed it. Thanks for the detailed steps so it took the guesswork out for a first-timer!

I used this recipe and another for our 3 pound prime rib. We did the 8 garlic cloves, but we covered the fat/bone part of the rib with 1/4 Cup of salt & 1/4 Cup of Rosemary. After cooking, I dusted off the salt crust. The Prime Rib was the best we have ever had! Loved the garlic prep the night before.

Very tender, pink and tasty rib roast. Used a Choice cut roast from a club store, and we could get enough. Thanks for this simple and delicious recipe.

Made it for Christmas and DH Bday. It was amazing!! DH said it was better than anything he has eaten in a resturant. I'm not a big fan of red meat but this recipe made me want more prime rib!!
