DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 500º.
  • Mix seasonings together and pat all over the roast.
  • It probably won't stick very well to the fat side but that's ok.
  • Put the roast in a Dutch oven, preferably on a small rack to lift it off the bottom of the pot.
  • Bone side up (fat side down).
  • Place a meat thermometer in the middle of the roast being careful not to get too close to the bone.
  • Cover with lid (you need a fairly large Dutch oven so the lid will fit on properly).
  • Cook the roast in the oven for 5-6 minutes per pound, then shut off the oven.
  • DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR FOR TWO HOURS, UNDER PENALTY OF DEATH!
  • ****The 2 hours starts as soon as the roast is put in the oven****.
  • After two hours, take it out and check the temperature.
  • If it's 140º, it's perfect!
  • If it's cooler, put back in oven at 375º until it reaches 140º.
  • This procedure will yield a PERFECT MEDIUM RARE PRIME RIB.
  • Don't ask how to do medium or well done because cooking prime rib past medium rare is a felony.
