Succulent, medium-rare, and tender, this prime rib melts in your mouth. Very easy to make and a Christmas Eve fave.

  • Slice several slits into the top of prime rib; push garlic cloves into slits. Coat prime rib with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange rosemary sprigs and thyme sprigs atop prime rib and place in a roasting pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned on the outside and pink in the center, 3 1/2 to 4 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 125 degrees F (52 degrees C). Allow prime rib to rest 15 minutes before slicing.

I followed the directions exactly. It didn’t take as long to cook as The recipe calls for, but it was probably the oven and not the recipe. Either way , the taste was amazing. I am definitely keeping this recipe . Be sure you start with a good cut of meat. Read More

It was perfect and easy. I wasn't sure if it should be covered while cooking; no is the answer to that. I had the shop where I purchased the roast season and remove from the bone for me. Perfectly cooked! Read More
