EASY ROAST PRIME RIB OF BEEF
If you are tired of having turkey or ham for the holidays, consider making a standing rib roast of beef which is both easy to cook and impressive.
In a restaurant, this is normally listed as prime rib because restaurants usually have access to prime rated cuts of beef, which are liberally marbled with fat. Don’t worry if your store only sells choice cuts of beef. Even choice ribs are tender and they will be considerably cheaper.
You will need three ribs to feed four to six people and this will weigh between 4-6 pounds depending upon which end of the seven ribs you use. I prefer the first three ribs, which are smaller and have less fat.
You will also need an oven that can be preheated to 500 F and a large covered roasting pan.
You should also have a meat thermometer although I have made this roast plenty of times without one.
If you prefer to use a tied boneless rib roast instead, reduce the heating time by about 10 minutes. You will also then need a wire rack that fits inside the roaster to keep the meat from soaking in the pan juices. With a standing rib roast, the bones serve the same function as the rack.
Make certain that there is a layer of fat on either type of roast, since that will keep the meat juicy and should end up crispy and delicious.
2 Hours (approximately depending on the size of the roast)
3-Rib Standing Beef Rib Roast
¼ Cup flour
- Leave the packaged roast warm up to room temperature – about 2-3 hours.
- 15 minutes before starting preheat your oven to 500 F. Meanwhile, liberally salt and pepper the roast on all sides.
- Then rub the flour into all of the fat surfaces.
- Stick the meat thermometer into the thickest end of the roast, making certain that it does not come in contact with the bones.
- Place the roast in the pan, fat side up, and cover the pan.
- Place it in the preheated oven and cook it exactly according to the following table:
Serve with a baked potato with sour cream, a nice salad and a good bottle of red wine and you have great holiday meal.
If you want to serve an impressive salad , you can serve the following Caesar Salad:

7. At the precise time listed on the table (based on weight and desired degree of doneness), turn the oven off and walk away for one hour without opening the oven.. Then you can open the oven and check the temperature of the meat. It should fall within the range of temperatures listed in the table. you can wait an additional 30 minutes before carving the roast.
8. The first time that you make this roast, you may have to make some adjustment based on how accurate your oven temperature is and how well it holds heat. After that, it should be pretty automatic.
