Prime Rib Roast - Our Holiday Tradition


When I first met my husband, we started our own traditions. After 17 years, we still continue them. One of those traditions is having a Prime Rib Roast for the holidays.

It is a little pricey but well worth the price. When I first made my first prime rib roast, I overcooked it. The next year, I undercooked. The third year, it was perfect and from then on I have been able to perfect the recipe as time has gone on.

Making prime rib roast looks difficult but it is probably one of the easiest recipes around.

Holiday Prime Rib Roast

Standing Rib Roast (3 to 5 ribs)
Pensey's English Rib Rub
Salt and Pepper
6 to 8 garlic cloves

Bring Rib roast to room temperature and pat down with paper towels
Make a few slits in the meat and place garlic cloves in the rib roast
Rub the roast with the Penzey spice and salt and pepper
Turn oven to 450°-500° F
Place roast with the fatty side up on a roasting pan
Cook on high heat for 15 minutes then turn ven down to 350°F
Cooking time is based on weight. Allow 15 minutes per pound.
Always use a thermometer to check doneness:  115°-120°F for rare or 125°-130°F for medium.  

Remove from oven and let rest for about 20 minutes.

See how easy it is. It is also delicious. We usually serve our rib roast with mashed potatoes and homemade gravy. Also a roasted veggie and Yorkshire Pudding. Yummo!
