HOLIDAY PRIME RIB ROAST
Prime Rib is the perfect centerpiece for a holiday table or a Sunday dinner with the family. This Prime Rib Roast recipe is flavored perfectly and roasts easily in the oven leaving you with the most tender beef recipe.
5 pounds boneless ribeye roast
2 tablespoons olive oil see note
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning crushed with your thumb into your palm
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Set a wire rack in a roasting pan and set aside.
Brush the roast with olive oil. Rub in the garlic, kosher salt, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Set in the roasting pan.
Roast the meat at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees. Continue to cook the meat until it registers 130 degrees for medium rare (approximately 2 hours), or 140 degrees for medium (approximately 2 1/4 hours). See section in the post about cooking times for prime rib.
Remove from the oven, tent loosely with foil, and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing and enjoying.
This is a fatty piece of meat and does not necessarily need the extra oil. You can can forgo the oil, but then you should also forgo the garlic so it does not burn.
