How to make it

  • Rub fresh chopped garlic, fresh ground pepper, dried rosemary and dried thyme to taste into the fat at the top of the roast. Lay sliced onions on top. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place roast, fat side up, in a shallow roasting pan. Do not cover and do not add liquid. Put roast in oven for one hour. Turn oven off.
  • Now this is IMPORTANT. Do not open oven, not even for 1 second. Wait 30-60 minutes. Turn oven on again to 375 degrees and roast the beef for an additional 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and lest rest 15-20 minutes before carving. Slice into thick slabs.
  • Serve with sauteed mushrooms, baked potato, salad, and good bread for a true gourmet feast.

    Griz, this sounds wonderful -- but I'm wondering, the prime rib roast I have will probably cut into two slabs about the thickness of what you would get in a restaurant when ordering "prime rib". Do you think I would still cook it for as long as you have in your instructions? Can you let me know what you think?
