Restaurant Style Prime Rib Roast


I was at Trader Joe’s rummaging through the packaged meats when I ran across a Prime Rib Roast. Never having made one I immediately checkout allrecipes.com and found a recipe that was simple and highly rated with over 200 positive reviews. Turned out it was very easy to make and cooked perfectly.

The recipe may seem odd as it requires you to turn off the oven and leave the roast in for 3 hours. While doing this, you cannot open the oven for anything since the secret here is to trap the heat and slow cook the roast for the majority of the cooking. Trust me it works.

Restaurant Style Prime Rib Roast
Serves 6-8

1 (5 pound) standing beef Prime rib roast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Allow roast to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Combine the salt, pepper and garlic powder in a small cup. Place the roast on a rack in a roasting pan so that the fatty side is up and the rib side is on the bottom. Rub the seasoning onto the roast.

Roast for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Turn the oven off and leave the roast inside. Do not open the door. Leave it in there for 3 hours. 30 to 40 minutes before serving, turn the oven back on at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) to reheat the roast. The internal temperature should be at least 145 degrees F (62 degrees C). Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before carving into servings.
