Easy Prime RibFrom pkusmc 3 years ago
How to make it
- Allow the roast to sit uncovered in the fridge for 24 hours to dry it out (it will sear better!)
- An hour before cooking, remove the roast from the fridge and allow to rest at room temperature
- Preheat oven to 500
- Rub butter on the ends of the roast, and cover with the rub, working it in by hand. Use the rub generously...it's good stuff
- Now, you will need to know exactly how much your roast weighs for the next part.
- Multiply the weight by 5, and this is how long you will be roasting at 500. For instance, if you have a 5 lb roast, 5 x 5 = 25 minutes of roasting time.
- I had a 6 lb roast, so I roasted at 500 for 30 minutes. At precisely the end of that time, turn off the oven and leave it alone for 2 hours. Do not open the oven at all, or the method won't work. I had a hard time believing in this method, but finally gave it a shot and man, is it worth it. What you'll have is a perfectly cooked, medium rare rib roast. It's ready to serve as soon as the 2 hours is up. Hot, juicy, tender....mmmm
- Give it a shot...you'll never cook it another way!

I have been eyeing this "oven off" method of making prime rib for some time, but was worried that my electric oven wouldn't have enough residual heat after the initial 500 degree blast to cook the meat to the medium-rare we like. And prime...morebakerme in loved it
I tried this with a little .77 pound rib eye steak so it got the oven on at 500F for only four minutes. Still, I let it sit for the whole two hours. I came out a little more done than I would have liked but it was still very good and very tender. ...morefrankieanne in Somewhere loved it
