Prime Rib Roast.

My mother's specialty is Prime Rib Roast. Much to my husband's chagrin, as he's not really a red meat eater. But I love it. And it's easy. So, when rib roasts went half off after the holidays, I picked one up. (Did you know this? Check with your butcher the day after any big holiday for *amazing* savings.) So here it is, the meal we eat pretty much every time we visit my parents. Which is a lot. Yay for me!

Prime Rib Roast

Prime Rib Roast Ingredients:
  • rib roast (mine was 6.5 pounds, you can get it with the bones in or out, doesn't matter)
  • 1 packet onion soup mix

Prime Rib Roast Directions:

  1. Place your roast rib side down (fat side up) on a foil lined roasting pan. Remove any strings. Rub onion soup mix over beef.
  2. For a roast that is rare in the center and slightly pink toward the outside, roast your prime rib uncovered at 500 degrees for 5 minutes per pound of meat, plus 5 more minutes (so I did mine about 38 minutes). Add time as desired for a more well cooked roast.
  3. Then turn the oven off and leave the roast for two hours. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN.
  4. Carve and enjoy!

  1. You are cooking at way too high of a temp and you need to let that rib roast rest in some foil. I prefer a slow cook method at 225 for about 4 hrs. Then let the internal temp get to 225 for medium rare and 235 for medium. These temps because you wrap your meat in foil and let it rest for 1/2 an hour and let it adsorb those juices back into the meat. Otherwise you just wasting money on this expensive primal rib cut.

    1. Just because it's not how you do it, doesn't make it wrong. This is how my family has always cooked it and it turns out delicious. Thanks for taking the time to comment <3
