Making A Prime Rib Roast

Prime Rib is not only a crowd pleaser with those who enjoy beef but it’s probably one of the simplest roasts to prepare. Many people don’t realize just how easy they are to make.
This weekend, I hosted a dinner date with a couple of girlfriends so we could chat, catch up on what everyone has been up to lately (on my end there was quite a lot of news to share), and have a bite to eat together. I wanted something that they would both enjoy, that the hubby would get a kick out of, and that I was in the mood to eat that day – my taste for protein has been swinging wildly lately.


I have to say it ended up being the star of the day and we all every much enjoyed our dinner. Yummyyyy. One of my girlfriends – who admits this is her all-time favorite way to eat beef – asked for the recipe that night so I thought I would share it with all of you too.


Here’s what you’ll need:  
  • A 5 lb Prime Rib Roast
  • 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3-4 Tbsp of a course Beef Rub (salt, peppercorns, paprika, & other spices you like)


How it looks before it goes into the oven…


Making the Roast: 
  • Take the roast out of the fridge & allow it to get to room temp (20-30 minutes)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Place in roasting pan & cover thoroughly with olive oil
  • Rub the beef rub mixture into all sides of the roast
  • Allow to sit in the seasoning for another 15-20 minutes before placing in oven
  • Then, roast in oven for 17-20 minutes per pound ( to achieve medium doneness)
  • Remove from oven when done cooking and allow to rest for 10-15 min
  • Slice and serve


For our gathering, we decided to plate up the prime rib with roasted fingerling potatoes, mashed butternut squash and a side of green beans. It was the perfect combination and we all cleaned our plates until it was gone. Sooo good.

It was the ideal comforting meal for a day spent with good friends and in good company. If you decide to give this a try, I hope you enjoy it.

Any other recipes out there for making your favorite roast?

    I am terrible at cooking meat and yet…I figured out that the best roast comes from my slow cooker! Everyone raves about it and frankly it takes me 2 minutes to open a seasoning packet, mix it with water, and turn the dial. Love it!!
