Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 275F
  • Slice meat from bone leaving hinge at thick side, see above.
  • Coat roast liberally in olive oil.
  • Season heavily with salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme over entire roast including area between meat and bone.
  • Insert probe of thermometer to center of meat exactly as practical, keeping away from bone.
  • Place on roasting rack ribs down, in roasting pan, in middle of preheated oven.
  • Roast to desired doneness, see above.
  • Remove and let rest wrapped in foil 10-15 minutes depending on size of roast.
  • Remove thermometer probe after resting to keep juice in.
  • Carve and serve.
  • Drippings make good gravy, au jus, and Yorkshire pudding.
  • Cooking time varies with weight of roast. Figure around 22 minutes per pound. Plan to finish roast slightly early. This will compensate for any underestimated cook time and to give it time to rest without the other parts of the meal getting cold. Between the mass of the roast and the foil insulation, it will hold its heat a few minutes longer.
  • Now THAT’S good!

    After ruining many expensive rib roasts, this will be my "go to" recipe when we splurge on a celebratory meal. Great instructions and I'm sure I won't fail and end up with a gray dry roat. Thanks you.

    This sounds like something you could only find at a "Top Notch" restaurant featuring steaks done right. I'm thinking Ruth Chris, Morton's or Capital Grill. Very nice post and picture.

    Yes it does because it is still in contact with the bones during cooking, sitting on top of them. It is not imperative to cut between the meat and bone but it is easier to handle that way when it is hot. Boneless works well also and is cooked the same way, fat cap up. I have cooked both bone in and boneless using the same technique and both turn out very good.

    OK... I have one of these if freezer.. Hubby picked it up when it was $3.99 a pound.. I have never roasted one.. I guess it's time.. What I don't understand is.. if the bones give it flavor, when you cut and leave the flap.. does it still get the flavor?
