Prime rib, is a cut of beef from the primal rib. It is very easy to cook. You just start it in the oven at a high temperature to get good browning on the outside of the roast, and then cook it at a lower temperature to make sure the meat in the center doesn’t get over cooked.
- Prime rib roast 1 (10 pound)
- Garlic (minced) 10 cloves
- Olive oil 2 tablespoons
- Salt to taste
- Black pepper 2 teaspoons (ground)
- Dried thyme 2 teaspoons
- In first step take a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Place the roast in a roasting pan, spread the mixture over the fatty layer of the roast, and let the roast sit out until it is at room temperature, no longer than 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
- Bake the roast for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and continue roasting for an additional 60 to 75 minutes. The internal temperature of the roast should be at 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) for medium rare.
- Allow the roast to rest for 10 or 15 minutes before carving so the meat can retain its juices.
