Never Fail Prime Rib

This is what we made for Christmas dinner. It has become a tradition at my parents house. We had a 17# rib roast this year. The next day we put the leftovers in the crockpot with 8 cups of beef broth and heated it on low while we were at church. The meat was very moist and tender!


Never Fail Prime Rib

2-3 #roast- preheat oven 450
4-5 #roast- preheat oven to 500

Let roast sit out at room temperature for 1 hour. Rub with olive oil. Pat a mixture of :

2 T Kosher salt
1/4 c garlic powder
1/8 cup black pepper
1/4 montreal steak seasoning.

Place on rack in open roasting pan. Drop Temperature of oven to 450. Place roast in oven and DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR until end of roasting time.

Roast at 450 for 1 hour. Turn off oven for 3 hours.

Set oven temperature for 375 and roast for 3/4-1 hour depending on size of roast and degree of doneness. Let stand 15 minutes before carving.

Roasting in this manner enables you to serve well done, well, medium and medium rare servings. For bigger roasts, add time on to each cooking time. We did a 17# roast for Christmas and cut it in half. We added 15 minutes on to each roasting time.
