  • 1 prime rib roast (trimmed and tied, 5 1/2-6 1/2 lb.)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

3. Directions:

3.1 Prep

Season the prime rib liberally on all sides with salt and black pepper.

Line a roasting pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil and position a roasting rack inside of it.

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Set an extra-large skillet over medium-high heat and pour in the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, place the prime rib in the skillet. Sear the meat, undisturbed, until browned, 2-3 minutes on all sides.

3.4 Prep

Transfer the prime rib back to the roasting rack.

3.5 Oven

Roast the prime rib on middle rack of oven until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 120-145°F, depending on desired doneness, 75-100 minutes.

3.6 Check

Check to see that prime rib is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.

3.7 Serve

Allow the prime rib to rest on the rack for 15-30 minutes, then transfer to a cutting board and untie. Carve and serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers up to 5 days or freeze up to 6 months.
