This was the star of this years Christmas dinner. Let me tell you this has go to be one of the finest cuts (and most expensive) of meat there is and as long as you don’t over cook this you really cant go wrong!
What I used:
1- 16lb Prime Rib Roast (Purchased from local butcher total cost was $139)
1- Clove of garlic
Seasonings: Generous amount of the following: Black pepper, paprika, cayenne, adobo, garlic salt, onion powder, turmeric, cumin, sazon, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, dried oregano, parsley and 1 cup good coffee beans (I used Lavazza Italian Roast)
Step 1: Take roast out of Fridge and allow it to come to room temperature (you do not want to put this in the oven cold or it will screw with finished product!
Step 2: Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Step 3: In a Tupperware combine all seasonings, put the lid on and shack that sucker up until all spices fall in love with each other!
Step 4: Pat down the roast w. a paper towel to eliminate all the mositure
Step 5: Rub the spice mixture all over the roast, really rub it good there is no such thing as too much rubbing in this step, cake that spice rub all over that meat
Step 6: Using a knife make incisions all around the roast and shove the peeled cloves of garlic inside using your fingers (really try and push that garlic down to the center of the roast
Step 7: Place roast on a “”roasting rack” and place in the oven
Step 8: ***VERY IMPORTANT*** Roast for 15 minutes at 450 and then drop the temperature to 325 degrees every 30 minutes bast the roast w. the drippings in the bottom of the pan
Cooking times and temperatures
For medium-rare prime rib, we want to take the roast out of the oven at 120°F, and it will continue cooking until it reaches 130°F. If you prefer a medium prime rib, take it out at 130°F with a target temperature of around 140°. Either way, you’ll still want to rest the meat until it comes back down to 120° before carving it.
Step 9: Take out of oven and let rest for 45 minutes under a “tin foil tent”
Step 10: Slice and serve this roast fed my Big Italian Family of 18 people!!
PS: Once you can no longer eat anymore break out that delicious Italian bread and start making sandwiches for lunch the next day!!
