Hello. Welcome to solsarin. This post is about “best way to cook prime rib roast“.

Standing rib roast

A standing rib roast, also known as prime rib, is a cut of beef from the primal rib, one of the nine primal cuts of beef. While the entire rib section comprises ribs six through 12, a standing rib roast may contain anywhere from two to seven ribs.

It is most often roasted “standing” on the rib bones so that the meat does not touch the pan. An alternative cut removes the top end of the ribs for easier carving.

Rib-eye steaks are cut from a standing rib, boned with most of the fat and lesser muscles removed.

While often referred to as “prime rib”, the USDA does not require the cut to be derived from USDA Prime grade beef.[1]

Roasted and Reverse Seared Prime Rib Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 standing rib roast (prime rib), 3 to 12 pounds (1.3 to 5.4kg; see note)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to lowest possible temperature setting, 150°F (66°C) or higher if necessary. (Some ovens cannot hold a temperature below 250°F/121°C.) Season roast generously with salt and pepper. Place roast, with fat cap up, on a V-rack set in a large roasting pan, or on a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet. Place in oven and cook until center of roast registers 120-125°F (49-52°C) on an instant-read thermometer for rare, 130°F (54°C) for medium-rare, or 135°F (57°C) for medium to medium-well. In a 150°F oven, this will take around 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 hours; in a 250°F oven, this will take 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

  2. Remove roast from oven and tent loosely with aluminum foil. Place in a warm spot in the kitchen and allow to rest for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 1/2 hours. Meanwhile, preheat oven to highest possible temperature setting, 500 to 550°F (260 to 288°C).

  3. Ten minutes before guests are ready to be served, remove foil, place roast back in hot oven, and cook until well-browned and crisp on the exterior, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, carve, and serve immediately.

Notes

This recipe works for prime rib roasts of any size from two ribs to six ribs. Plan on one pound of bone-in roast per guest. (Each rib adds one and a half to two pounds to the roast.) For best results, use a dry-aged prime-grade or grass-fed roast.

To improve the crust, allow the roast to air-dry, uncovered, on a rack in the refrigerator overnight before roasting. Seasoning with salt up to a day in advance will help the seasoning penetrate the meat more deeply. If, after step 1, your timing is off, and your roast is ready long before your guests are, reheat the roast by placing it in a 200°F (93°C) oven for 45 minutes before you continue with step 2.

Prime Rib – simply the best

Ingredients

  • 2.5 kg / 5 lb standing rib roast / prime rib , bone in (Note 1)
  • 1 onion , unpeeled, quartered (brown, yellow, white)
  • 1 head of garlic , unpeeled, halved horizontally
  • 5 sprigs thyme
  • 3 sprigs rosemary

GARLIC HERB BUTTER:

  • 150g/ 10 tbsp unsalted butter , softened
  • 5 garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary (or 1 tsp dried)
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme (or 1 tsp dried)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

RED WINE SAUCE:

  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth/stock , low salt
  • 2 1/2 cups dry red wine (Note 2)
  • 1 tbsp cornflour/cornstarch (optional, Note 3)

Instructions

PREPARE BEEF

  • Bring Beef to room temp: Take beef out of the fridge 2 – 3 hours before cooking to bring to room temp (key tip for even cooking). Pat dry with paper towel.
  • Preheat oven to 240°C/460°F (220°C fan). Adjust shelf so beef will be sitting in the middle of the oven.
  • Garlic Herb Butter: Mix together.
  • Roasting bed: Place onion, garlic and herbs in a heavy based oven proof skillet (or use a roasting pan).
  • Slather 1: Spread a thin layer of butter on the underside of the beef (ie the bone side). Place beef on onion etc, butter side down. Spread about 2/3 of the butter on the top and sides (reserve some for Slather 2).
  • Hot oven: Roast 20 minutes.
  • Slather 2: Remove, spread over remaining butter. Turn oven down to 120°C/250°F (100°C fan).
  • Slow roast: Roast for a further 1 1/2 hours, basting every 30 minutes with the juices in the pan, until the internal temperature is 50°C/122°F in the centre (for medium rare, Note 4). Start checking the internal temp early.
  • Rest: Transfer beef to plate. Cover loosely with foil and rest for 20 – 30 minutes. Internal temperature will rise to 54°C/129°F (which is medium rare).
  • Slice beef and serve with Sauce! For a classic high-end Steakhouse experience, serve with Paris Mash and Garlic Sautéed Spinach.

RED WINE SAUCE:

  • Place skillet with onion and garlic left in it on the stove over high heat. Add wine and beef stock, rapidly simmer for 10 minutes until it reduces by 2/3 or so, down to 1 1/2 cups or liquid.
  • Lower heat to medium. Mix cornflour with 2 tbsp water. Drizzle in half and stir. Sauce will thicken in 1 minute or so. Add more cornflour water mixture if you want it thicker.
  • Strain into bowl, pour into sauce jug.
