Prime or Standing Rib Roast Done Right

Prime or Standing Rib Roast Done Right created by Baby Kato

This comes out perfect each time I've made it. The high temp at the start seals in all those wonderful juices and when its time to slice the roast, you won't believe all the juices. Very moist and tasty. Use your own spice blend but this is how I make it.

ingredients

directions

  • Start with a room temperature roast and a preheated oven @ 500 degrees F. Your oven rack should be set to the second from the bottom.
  • With the tip of your knife, poke enough holes in the roast to insert your sliced garlic cloves.
  • Rub the spices all over the roast.
  • Place your roast on a grate in your roasting pan, uncovered, and place in the 500 degree F. oven following the formula for doneness.
  • Formula: 6 minutes per pound for medium; 5 minutes per pound for medium rare; 4 minutes per pound for rare.
  • After the alloted time you choose for doneness, turn the oven off and do not open the door. After 2 hours has passed, take the roast out and tent with foil for 10 to 20 minutes then slice.

    Our butcher wants to cut the meat away from the bone and slice each section in half then reassemble it. He says it's easier to serve this way. Will doing this affect the cooking time, the flavor or the juiciness of the roast? I've never been told to do this before.

    Followed these instructions to a T for a meduim roast. 2 hours later it was still blue. NOT HAPPY

    First tried this in August 2010. This recipe is amazing. The key to it is holding in the oven for 2 hours after turned off. I actually roasted it on my Weber - but had my kitchen Wolf oven heated up to 500, then I turned the Wolf off, transferred the roast from the Weber to the inside oven and let set for 2 hours. It was so fantastic we served 10 at Christmas dinner! Thank you Zeph's Wife.
