    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This is a most tasty recipe whether it is barbecued or cooked in the oven. I suggest that you select a Prime Rib Roast, triple A with bone-in.

      This was the star attraction at xmas dinner! Complete silence for about 5 minutes as everyone dug in :) I had to use dried rosemary as no fresh was available, and I didn't make the gravy because some of the paste fell into the pan & it was pretty burned into the drippings- no matter, good beef doesn't need a sauce & I didn't serve potatoes. I doubled the paste because, while my roast was a 3-rib, it weighed over 8lbs because I used the better "small end" (first cut, or ribs #10-12); My baking time was around 2 hours. We loved the combination of garlic & rosemary flavors. Thank you!
