How to Cook a Rib Roast of Beef- Commonly referred to as Prime Rib

Beef Rib Roast

A beef rib roast is commonly called prime rib even though most people don't realize Prime Rib is a beef rib roast from USDA Prime Grade beef. If you purchase a beef rib roast from a supermarket or other local meat retailer chances are it is not USDA Prime beef, which can be very exspensive. I reccomend looking for a USDA Choice Grade beef rib roast which is nicely marbled.

When Purchasing a Beef rib roast you will want to buy 1 rib per every 2 adults. One full rib may be between 1.5 and 2.5 lbs. To begin cooking your beef rib roast preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.  Rub a light coating of olive oil over the entire roast. Season with salt, pepper, onion, and garlic powder. Or use a blended spice like a steak seasoning or beef rub. Place in a roasting pan with the bones down fat side up. Place into preheated oven for 16 - 18 minutes per lb. or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from oven and cover roast loosely with aluminum foil. Let roast rest for 15-20 minutes before carving.
