Prime Rib

We have started a new tradition for Christmas Dinner and that would be a delicious, tender and juicy Prime Rib of Beef. I made my first one about 3 years ago and was amazed at how easy it truly is, completely foolproof!

1 6-7 pound prime rib of beef
5 Tablespoons of seasoning (1 cup of salt, 1/3 cup garlic powder, 1/3 cup black pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Allow roast to sit at room temperature for 2 hours. Place rib side down in a greased roasting pan. Generously rub seasoning mixture over the top of the roast. Place a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the roast. Place on the center rack of the oven and heat bake for 1 hour. Turn oven off and leave in the oven for 3 hours. DO NOT open the oven door. The roast will continue to cook. During the last hour, turn oven back on to 375 degrees and heat for about 30-45 minutes, until heated through. Remove roast from the oven and place a piece of foil over the top to keep warm. Allow roast to rest for 30-45 minutes. The temperature will rise about 10 degrees during the resting time.
Carve with an electric knife and enjoy!
