Special Occasion Scrumptious Prime Rib
- Ready In:
- 1hr 38mins
- 4 -5 lbs standing rib roast
- fresh garlic
- salt and pepper
- Remove roast from fridge and let stand at room temp for one hour before cooking. Preheat oven to 500°F.
- Slice 16 small slits with sharp knife throughout roast. Slice 16 small slivers of garlic. Carefully insert garlic slivers in slits, squeezing meat together after placing garlic slivers. Combine salt and pepper to taste and rub roast with mixture.
- Place on rack in roasting pan, fat side up. NEVER ADD WATER OR ANY LIQUID. Place in 500°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until meat is well-browned. Reduce heat quickly to moderate (325°F) for reminder of roasting time.
- In reckoning roasting time, include searing period. COOKING TIME: RARE to MED-RARE: 18 minutes per pound (this will turn out rare; leave roast in for a few more minutes for med-rare); MEDIUM: 22 minutes per pound: WELL-DONE: 27 minutes per pound.
- Remove from oven and cover loosely with foil. Allow to stand for a full 15 minutes to allow juices to settle. Carve and serve.
- NOTE: IF YOU COOK THIS ROAST IN A CONFECTION OVEN, BE SURE AND SKIP THE SEARING PROCESS (20-25 MINUTES OF HIGH OVEN TEMP OF 500°F), AS IT WILL OVERCOOK THE MEAT.

Searched many of these prime rib recipes and settled on this one. Really wanted to try this method---high temp to sear, followed by low temp and with the timings included. Loved this recipe....simply wonderful. Made it for my husband for our 16th anniversary....We just loved it. Used a 3.5 lb roast. Only change was I used a dry rub (spice by McCormick) rather than the garlic. If you are looking for a perfect prime rib, try this. It will not disappoint!!! Will always make my prime rib with this recipe. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

2007 I thought that I would edit my home page...its been over two years, so I its time to update! I have lived in beautiful New Mexico for the last few years (Albuquerque), after 20 years of living on the West Coast (San Francisco and Seattle). I love many things about New Mexico - the perfect weather, in particular; the sunsets; the open land; and the great Southwest food - but also sometimes miss the energy of bigger cities. I am a mental health therapist, who loves my work! I love to cook (a passion that I discovered after getting married). Rather than cooking a few favorites on a regular basis, I prefer to collect recipes (primarily from the Internet), and try new things often (in fact, my husband jokes that he will try a new dish that he loves and then never see it again :-)). I also love to read, write, travel, work on personal growth, and study/learn. I am a total water baby, who lives in the desert, so I love traveling to tropical locations, where I especially love to snorkle and boggie board! I am very happily married to my best friend, soulmate, partner, and greatest cheerleader and supporter, and we have three grown children, and four grandchildren (so far :-))I am a total foodie (I "live to eat" instead of "eat to live.") :-) I love everything about food...cooking; the delicious scents of a yummy dish, as it cooks; the beautiful presentation of wonderful food; dining out; dining in; the taste of great food; sitting around the table, with friends and family, eating, talking and laughing; nurturing those I love by cooking for them...all of the senusal pleasures that food brings! My favorite Internet site for yummy recipes is this one - and I almost always choose recipes with five-star ratings, so please keep on reviewing! :-)
