Angus Beef Standing Prime Rib Roast

Yield 6-7
RECIPE Ingredients
Recipe notes
Little embellishment is needed for this gorgeous standing rib roast – just salt, pepper, and a very hot oven. Starting the roast at a high temperature will create a beautiful crust which will add tremendous flavor and seal in the juices. Cooked to medium-rare, this Angus prime rib is melt-in-your-mouth tender.
RECIPE Preparation
  1. Remove the roast from the refrigerator about 1 hour prior to cooking.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  3. Generously season the meat on all sides with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Place roast fat side up in a rack on a shallow pan. Roast for 25 minutes.
  4. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue to roast for about 15 minutes per pound, or until an instant read thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 130 – 140 degrees F, for a medium-rare center.
  5. Allow the roast to rest on a cutting board for at least 15 minutes before carving. Spoon warm pan drippings over, if desired.
