Prep Time
1 hr 15 mins

Cook Time
1 hr 30 min

Total Time
2 hr 45 mins



  • 5.5 lbs Adena Farms Standing Rib Roast
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper


  1. Remove the rib roast from the refrigerator at least 1 hour before cooking to bring it to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix butter, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper together. Rub all of the butter on the outside of your prime rib and place in a roasting pan or large skillet with the fat side up.
  3. Cook for 15 minutes at 450°F and then reduce the temperature to 325°F. Bake until it reaches an internal temperature of 110°F, approx. 1 hour (be sure to check your roast halfway through cooking to gauge your cook time).
  4. Remove from oven, cover with foil and let it rest for at least 20 minutes. The temperature will continue to rise to 130°F for a medium rare prime rib.
  5. Slice and serve.


Don’t forget your meat thermometer! A prime rib roast can be intimidating as you try to achieve the perfect medium-rare. Using a meat thermometer will make quick and easy work of managing your internal temperature.

Roughly 15 minutes of cooking time per pound for rib roast. The bones create a natural roasting rack for the meat. Cook the roast at a higher temperature of 450 °F for 15 minutes in the beginning. Then reduce the temperature to 325°F and continue to cook until the thermometer reads 110 °F for the perfect medium-rare. Resting time is key here for a beautifully juicy roast.
