The "rub" make the flavor delicious. I always serve this as medium rare. I am convinced that a well done beef roast subtracts from the full flavor of the beef.

We had a rare standing rib roast for dinner tonight with this rub. It was delicious, and I think the people who ate the middle were really envious of those 2 that got the outside with all the delicious rub on it. Thanks for a good recipe.

Incredibly easy and delicious!! I have always used the recipes where you heat up oven then shut off or cook at a high temp. then turn it down. This was wonderful. Nice flavor and very juicy. Enjoyed the leftovers in french dip sandwiches with au jus made from drippings. I will definitely do this again.

This is a great rub for a standing rib roast! I only added about a 1/2 tsp of dry mustard and 1 tsp of onion powder. Cooked to 145 degrees internal. Other than it was more than a family could finish, it was fabulous! Thanks for the recipe!
