- (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 salt
- (1 teaspoon) cracked black pepper
- Remove the rib roast from the refrigerator at least 1 hour before cooking to bring it to room temperature. Preheat the oven to Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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
