Making that perfect roasted prime rib can seem daunting, especially if you’re expecting company. It becomes much more straightforward with the following recipe. It takes only 10 minutes to prepare before you put it in the oven.
Depending on how large of a roast you choose and how well you like it cooked, you can have it ready to go within six hours.
Best of all, you probably have many of the ingredients in your kitchen already so all you have to do is visit your butcher shop to choose your roast.
- 1 (14 pounds) roast-ready prime rib roast (with the ribs cut out)
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 2 teaspoons of paprika
- 1 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of celery seed
- Olive oil
Directions for Roast Prime Rib
1. Take out the prime rib from your freezer and allow the meat to come to room temperature. This should take about three hours, depending on the size of the roast.
2. Preheat the oven to 425° F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil.
3. Unwrap the prime rib and place it onto the roasting pan; blot it with paper towels. Rub the meat with olive oil all over.
4. Sift together flour, pepper, salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and celery seed into a small bowl. Coat and rub the prime rib all over with this flour mixture.
5. Roast in preheated oven until cooked to your taste: about four-and-a-half hours (or 20 minutes per pound) for medium rare. Roast to an internal temperature of 120° F for medium rare; 130° F for medium; or 140° F for well done.
6. When the prime rib has finished cooking, take it out of the oven, and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the roast to rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes to one hour before slicing.
7. Serve the roast with your favorite side dishes and enjoy.
