How to Cook a Prime Rib Roast

What Is Prime Rib Roast?

Prime rib claims center stage during holiday season for a very good reason. It is the king of beef cuts. A bone-in prime rib roast is also called a standing rib roast, because you position the roast majestically on its rib bones in the roasting pan to cook it. (Source: www.simplyrecipes.com)

How Many People Does Prime Rib Roast Serve?

A full rack of prime beef is 7 ribs, which will easily serve 14 to 16 people (or more!). A full rack will not fit in my oven, so when I'm feeding a crowd, I cut the roast in half (3 ribs on one roast and 4 ribs on the other) and cook them in separate ovens.

What Grade of Meat Is Prime Rib?

Note that just because you are ordering a "prime" rib, it doesn't mean that you are getting USDA Prime. Most "prime ribs" we get from market are actually USDA Choice quality.

Cook's Note:

Your cooking times will vary depending on the size of your prime rib roast. To calculate your cooking time, multiply the exact weight of the roast by 5. Round the resulting number to the nearest whole number. The rib is cooked at 500 degrees F for exactly that many minutes. For example, for a 6 pound roast: 6x5=30, so cooking time is 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and wait 2 hours before opening the oven door. Remove the prime rib and slice into the most perfectly medium-rare meat you've ever seen. (Source: www.allrecipes.com)

Editor's Note:

This works well for certain ovens. Here is the fool proof plan! After your calculated 500 degree blast turn off the oven. In 30 minutes check the oven temp by setting it to bake at 325 degrees. If your oven is below 325 and begins to heat up your oven either has a vent fan or cools off too quickly. No problem. Set it to 275 and leave it for the next hour. You are now at 1.5 hours after the blast. Turn oven off for the last half hour. Perfection. If your oven is over 325 one half hour after the first half hour blast you should be good with original recipe. Read More (Source: www.allrecipes.com)
