Foolproof Standing Rib Roast: Paula Deen

READY IN: 1hr 40mins


  • 1 -5
    lb standing rib roast (I use a 2 1/2 lb, 2 bone Roast for just the two of us)
  • 1
    tablespoon house seasoning (recipe follows)
  • 4 -6
    garlic cloves, studded in (optional)
  • House Seasoning
  • 1
    cup salt
  • 14
  • 14


  • Allow roast to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degree F.
  • Rub roast with ONLY 1 tablespoon of House Seasoning (See step #6). Place roast on a rack in a roasting pan with the rib side down and the fatty side up. Place a meat thermometer into the roast, but be sure that it is not touching the bones. Roast for 1 hour. uncovered.
  • Turn off oven. Leave roast in oven but DO NOT open oven door for the next 3 hours.
  • About 30 to 40 minutes before serving time, turn oven to 375 degrees F and reheat the roast. *Important: DO NOT remove roast or re-open the oven door from time roast is put in until ready to serve.
  • *Note: House Seasoning: Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months. It makes a lot, but be sure to only use 1 tablespoon.
  • Enjoy!
