Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (3 -4 lb) prime rib roast, any size will do
  • 12 teaspoon pepper (optional)
  • 14 teaspoon salt (optional)

Directions

  1. Season the roast with your favorite seasoning(s) and re-wrap in butcher paper.
  2. Let roast set on counter for at least four hours before cooking to obtain room temperature, (it will not spoil if you leave it on counter overnight).
  3. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Place roast in greased pan, uncovered, in oven and cook for 1 hour. (Size of roast makes no difference. Makes no difference if it is a bone-in or boneless roast). However, if it is a bone-in roast, place it in the pan bone-side down.
  5. Turn oven off (DO NOT PEEK).
  6. Leave roast in oven (DO NOT PEEK, THIS IS VERY, VERY CRITICAL TO THE PROCESS).
  7. Oven must be off a MINIMUM of two hours (DO NOT PEEK).
  8. 45 Minutes before you would like to serve, turn oven back on at 375 degrees.
  9. Roast will be medium to medium rare. If you want your roast a little more rare or a little more well-done adjust one hour cooking time by five minutes accordingly.
  10. Enjoy!
