The only problem I had was purchasing a meat thermometer that should not be left in the oven which quickley melted. MY BAD. So I had to wing it on the internal temp based on the times listed at the bottom of this recipe. It turned out wonderful!!!! Thanks Kit, I can always count on your recipes.
The best meal I've ever had. Christmas this year was extra special because of this post. Thank you so much!
EXCEPTIONAL! I wish i could give you 10 stars on this one. I made this recipe yesterday for my husband's over the hill birthday. I follow everything that is written and my roast came out unbelievably moist and very tasty. I used the whole head of garlic that i cut each in half then insert into the whole all the around the roast. I left it room temperature for 2 1/2 hours. Even my 6 years old gave me a thumbs up. The gravy, i just put little bit of flour just to thicken it. My husband was so satisfied after he had his birthday dinner. What a wonderful treat. He wanted me to thank you for posting this recipe. You are the best Kittencal, i love all your recipes.
"Awesome", were the first words out of my husband's mouth when he tasted this amazing roast. I had made a prime rib years ago and it was not very good at all. Followed this recipe as written and the results were spectacular. The only changes I made were I used the whole bulb of garlic, about 12 cloves so 24 pieces and when I did the au jus I added a little Knorr's Veloutine (Gluten free Thickener) to make the au jus just a little thicker. Adding that made the au jus glaze on the meat!! A new staple in our home!!
Outstanding! This is the quintessential prime rib recipe. I have never tasted its equal. My mother used this recipe for Christmas Dinner (after I sent it to her, of course). The 14 pound roast she bought wouldn't fit in the oven, so she cooked it in the grill over indirect heat. Otherwise she followed the recipe exactly. It came out perfectly, if a little rare due to its size. Another Kittencal triumph in our book.
This was a delicious homemade prime rib! We had a 5 pound roast with 3 ribs to feed 6 of us. The tips are all well worth the time to read & follow as they all made a difference in the final result. This will be the recipe I continue to use in the future. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, Kitt! Made for the Cookathon in memory of John.
forgot to give it stars it really deserves more, my husband must have told me 20 times how good it was
Made this last night for dinner. It was pretty good but I made one for Christmas cooking it for a bit then letting it sit and I think I liked it somewhat better. Don't get me wrong this was good also and would have been better with the garlic but dh doesn't care for it so I omitted. Thanks Kitten!
I made this for New Years Eve dinner with my in-laws and parents. I got great reviews for it. It was perfect just as the name says.
Not being a great cook by any means but this made me look really talented. I followed the directions as listed using a 3 1/2# roast. It cooked in about 90 minutes so you were very corrrect about different ovens cooking at different speeds. This will be a New Year's Day tradition for us. Thanks for sharing.
