This prime rib recipe seems to be fail proof if you follow the cooking directions. My friends have tried this too and say it comes out so yummy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 lbs of boneless prime rib roast
  • plenty kosher salt, 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons each of dried thyme and rosemary


  1. Heat your oven to 500 degress farenheit.
  2. Let your prime rib come to room temperature, mix the butter, thyme and rosemary and rub all over the prime rib. Then generously sprinkle kosher salt all over the roast. Place in a preheated 500 degree oven for 5 minutes per pound or 25 minutes for this prime rib. Turn off the oven, and DONT open the door. Let the prime rib sit in the oven with the door closed for 2 hours. After 2 hours you can take the prime rib out of the oven and slice it right away since it has been resting already.
