I absolutely love a roast dinner and prime rib has got to be one of the kings of the roast meats when cooked right. A lot of people like their prime rib almost raw but I cannot abide any meat with blood running out of it, I prefer mine just slightly pink in the middle and medium well on the outside.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Rub prime rib all over with olive oil, minced garlic, salt and white pepper.
  3. Place in baking dish and let cook for 1 and 1/2hrs, (One hour for a more rare prime rib).
  4. Stand and cover with foil for 15 to 20mins to allow juices to flow back into the meat.
  5. Carve into fairly thick slices to serve.

Tender, tasty, and flavorful! We used a larger roast (4.5 pounds) and cooked it to these specifications and it came out rare like we like it. Thanks, SueVM! Made for PAC Spring '09.
