Preparation 1-20 Cook Time 1-20

A simple recipe for perfect prime rib roast. So easy, first-timers need not fear!


  • 1 (5-10 pound) whole Rib Eye Roast
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sea salt flakes (or coarse kosher salt)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh-ground pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh chopped rosemary or dried rosemary
  • 3-4 cloves fresh garlic, chopped (optional)


Preheat oven to 500°F. Tie a roast into an even cylinder with kitchen twine. Place in a large baking dish or roasting pan. Drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic. Place in preheated oven, cook for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325°F and cook until the thickest portion of the meat, measured with a Good Cook Touch Meat Thermometer, reaches 115-120°F for rare or 125-130°F for medium. Once the meat reaches the desired doneness, remove from oven. Allow meat to sit for 15 minutes before slicing.
