    Kit_Kat's Note:

    The first several times I tried making prime rib, it came out tasting more like a traditional roast beef, than the "Prime Rib's" that I had at restaurants. This one was the exception, it came out picture prefect and succulent. The salt is not eaten, and is discarded after you finish cooking. *As the one very critical review pointed out I put in the wrong internal temperature for medium rare. IT SHOULD BE 130 DEGREES.

      I you love pot roast then this is the recipe to follow!!! The writer of this recipe is way off base with their temp. reading. A good med-rare internal temperature is 130-135 degrees not 165 (F). Love the salt-encrusted part but not the cooking part.
