Repeat after me, “prime rib is not scary.” It’s actually very simple to prepare. Prime Rib Roast can be intimidating because it is an expensive cut of beef and is usually made for important life events or holidays, but really, this is not hard to make.

The secrets to a great prime rib are (1) a meat thermometer and (2) a trusted method. TA-DA!! 🙂 Prime rib pairs really well with creamy mashed potatoes and baked asparagus for the ultimate holiday feast. And don’t forget the Creamy Horseradish Sauce

What Cut is Prime Rib Meat?

There are 2 grades of prime rib at the grocery store; prime grade and choice grade. Prime grade has more fat and marbling and can be considerably more expensive per pound. Ask your butcher whether your roast is prime or choice because it isn’t always clear on the packaging and most cuts sold are actually “choice”. This recipe works for either prime or choice, so go with the best you can buy.

Look for Bone-in prime rib, also known as a “Standing Rib Roast.” We used a 7 lb bone-in Beef Prime Rib, but you can use larger or smaller roasts and modify the baking time per the “Prime Rib Cooking Time” chart below.

How to Carve and Tie Prime Rib Roast:

Pre-cutting the bones away is completely optional but will make carving easier when ready to serve. It’s best to do it ahead than struggle with it in front of company. Removing and re-attaching the ribs with string doesn’t change the juiciness of the roast at all.

Cut away the bones and tightly tie them right back onto your roast with kitchen string, looping the string around in 1″ intervals. A butcher can cut away the ribs and tie the roast for you (usually free of charge).

How to Carve and Tie Prime Rib Roast

Garlic and Herb Prime Rib Rub:

Stir together: 6 finely chopped garlic cloves, 1/2 Tbsp salt, 1/2 Tbsp black pepper, 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary leaves, 1/2 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves and 3 Tbsp olive oil. Note: Do not use a garlic press as pressed garlic burns under high heat.Garlic and herb rub ingredients mixed in bowl

How to Cook Prime Rib:

1. Sprinkle meat all over with about 2 tsp salt, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let it rest on the counter for 3 hours to come to room temperature. The roast will bake more uniformly if it is near room temperature. When nearly at room temperature, Preheat Oven to 500˚F with rack in the lower third of the oven.

3. Pat the roast dry with paper towels then rub all over the top and sides with prime rib rub. Place into a roasting pan, rib-side-down. Put an oven-safe meat thermometer into the thickest portion of the meat and cook according to the Cooking Time Chart Below.

4. Once out of the oven transfer to a cutting board, tent loosely with foil and rest 30 minutes before carving. If you don’t rest the roast, it will juice out and become chewy. Remove the kitchen string and use a carving knife to slice against the grain to desired thickness

Prime Rib Cooking Time:

Bake in a fully pre-heated oven at 500˚F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325˚F and continue baking:

  • 10-12 min per pound for rare
  • 13-14 min per pound for medium rare
  • 14-15 min per pound for medium
  • 16-17 min per pound for medium well

Roast until the thermometer registers:

  • 115-120˚F for rare,
  • 125-130˚F for medium rare
  • 135-140 for medium doneness
  • 145-150 for medium well

My 7 lb roast baked at 500˚F for 15 minutes then at 325˚F for 1 hr 30 minutes for medium doneness.

Notes on Cooking Prime Rib Roast:

A colder or thicker roast will take more time to cook and oven strengths can vary so a meat thermometer is ultra important.

The internal temp of the roast will continue to rise 5-10 degrees even after it’s out of the oven so don’t over-bake it. You can put it back in the oven if you want it more done.

The garlic crust and initial roasting over high heat seals in the juices and makes every bite so tender and flavorful.

    I made this today and it was absolutely amazing! Followed the cooking time for medium. I didn’t use a thermometer cause I don’t have one that can be used in the stove… and I figured I will just pan fry any inner slices that might be too raw. But no need, it came out absolutely perfect!! The flavour of the garlic and herbs was so yummie! Thanks Natasha!

    I have never had, let alone made, a standing rib roast. I love to cook and was a bit intimidated, because of the cost of the meat, but the recipe is so simple and straightforward, I had to do it. I also, by chance, had a 7 lb roast. Mine came out medium rare following your exact timing, but I did not have a high quality thermometer. My father and husband, who have had many prime rib dinners, thought this was outstanding! I was exhausted from preparing the entire meal, and didn’t feel like eating, so I just tried a bite of the prime rib and it was fantastic! The flavor of the meat and marinade/rub was absolutely delicious!!! I will definitely make it many more times in the future…

    My prime roast was delicious with this recipe. I used for the first time my ovens probe meat thermometer and programmed it at 140 degrees F for the internal cooking of my roast and it was perfect. I would like to know if I can use the same recipe and method of cooking for a large pork roast with no bone?

    I am making your Prime Rib Roast recipe right now for New Year’s Day Dinner, so far it smells great! Let it stand for 3 hours salted and oiled to bring it to room temp.
    Got the garlic chopped and spices and prepared the rub.
    Patted dry the roast and rubbed it down with the rub, top, sides and placed in roaster in 500 degree preheated oven for 15 min’s. You could hear it sizzling, the smell is delicious, now while it is cooking, time to set up my table, get my wine glasses ready and finally get my veg’s ready. We grow our own garden so everything is fresh, doing creamed mashed potatoes, carrots, turnip and parsnip mix, asparagus steamed then roasted, roasted sweet potatoes, Hollandaise sauce for the asparagus and Yorkshire pudding! Starved with a mushroom gravy! I can hardly wait! Serving Chateau Timberlay, Merlot-Cabernet, 2016, this should compliment the beef nicely! Thank you for making my day more enjoyable

      Hi Carolina, you can cover it with plastic wrap and let it marinate overnight in the refrigerator. I haven’t reheated the entire rib to advise, but I imagine if you have quite a bit left, I will place it in a pan with some beef broth, cover with foil and bake until the meat is the desired temperature. I hope this helps.

This was the first time I tried your recipe and along with all of your other recipes that I have tried, it turned out perfect! My husband was in heaven and my boys loved it as well. It was juicy, flavorful, and the perfect color inside (my husband likes it medium well). I also made your horseradish sauce and green casserole and they were so flavorful and everybody loved them too! We will not be going back to the condensed soup for our green bean casserole, that’s for sure!

      Hi Melody, it would work with a boneless prime rib as well, but it may cook faster. I definitely would recommend using a meat thermometer to check for doneness.

    I was thinking, if you heat up the cast iron pan in the oven while preheating the oven and then placing the prime in it? Since the cast iron is very thick and takes longer to heat through. Would this make searing better?
    Also, can I use any oven safe pan other than cast iron?

      Hi Lily, it isn’t necessary to preheat the pan. A good metal pan that is oven-safe will also work or a roasting pan.

    Your cooking time doesn’t add up. You used a 7lb roast and cooked it additional 1.5 hrs for medium? If I used your calculations then it would take 1.25 hrs after turning it down to 325, no? So 1.5hrs total

      December 24, 2020

      Hi, if you multiply the number of minutes by the weight, that is correct. I highly recommend using an oven thermometer to gauge the temperature as prime rib can come in different thicknesses. Also, be sure to take it out before it reaches the desired temperature as it will continue to rise 5-10 degrees after it comes out of the oven.

    I am making this tomorrow for Christmas eve and have a 12.3 pound prime roast. Would I still remove the roast from the oven at 125 degrees (aiming for medium rare after resting)? Will this cause the ends of the roast to be overdone?

      Make sure the temp is being measured on the inside of the meat, the ends will be more done, but delicious nonetheless.

      Hi Rachel, I would highly recommend using an oven-safe thermometer since roasting 2 at once may need a slightly longer roasting time. Make sure your roasting pan is large enough to hold the two roasts without them touching as you want the air to circulate.

    I used my giant cast iron skillet and the sear was perfect.
    One tip I’d like to add is, when transferring to a cutting board make sure to set the board inside a rimmed cookie sheet. Even after sitting for thirty minutes, when you slice it there is so much juicy goodness running everywhere!
    By far the juiciest roast I’ve ever fixed !

      Hi Robert, the great thing about prime rib is you can have different variations of doneness depending on how you cut it – the center of the roast would be for those who love it medium rare and the edges for those who prefer medium or well done. Cook in the center to medium or medium-rare based on the chart. Please see the recipe section titled: “Prime Rib Cooking Time:” which will show you the temp you need for well done. I hope this helps.

      Hi Brittany, you could make a gravy with the pan drippings, similar to what we did with our turkey gravy. If the drippings are really stuck to the pan and it is a heat-safe pan, you can put the empty pan on the stove and loosen them up with some beef broth, and then use that liquid to make gravy.

      Hi Tiffany, since this goes into the oven at high heat, there is no need to pre-sear it since the oven will do that for you. I suggest if you do get fat splatter in the oven that it is cleaned up the same day, otherwise it will be more difficult to clean if you wait and let it set in (especially if you use the oven again without cleaning it).

        January 18, 2020

        Hi Lynn, I honestly have not experimented with this method using a sirloin roast. Sirloin roast doesn’t have that amazing layer of fat over the top so 500˚F might be a little too hot. You might start at 450 rather than 500 and turn down the heat per the recipe after the initial high heat searing then cook to your desired doneness, checking with an oven-safe meat thermometer. If you experiment, please let me know how it goes since someone else may have the same question.

    I can’t eat Turkey/Chicken unless it’s organic. Allergies. A friend of my husband said they were having Prime Rib for Christmas Dinner this year. He was too happy about that! Neither was my husband. But since I don’t eat turkey & Prime Rib was on sale I divided that is what we were going to have… I saw your video on FB & thought I’d give it a try. OMG I love garlic/lavender, I didn’t have Thyme so I substitute ground mustard. The olive oil is grown here in Texas and it good. I cooked mine a little too long (3lbs), but even though it was well done, it was soooo juicy. My husband said I can fix this anytime.

      Hi Wendy, I hope I’m understanding the question okay. I would check your Roast expiration date to make sure it is still good for that date.

        Hi Olya, are you welcome to omit those. Here is what one of our readers wrote “I have to eliminate the rosemary and thyme cuz I can’t tolerate the flavors. But the roast was AWESOME!!! Just love your cooking. Keep em coming lol” I hope that helps.

    This has been my “go to” recipe for prime rib for a few years now. It’s very easy to make and so flavorful. Today I am making prime rib and for my first time I am attempting yorkshire pudding to accompany.

        I do make a horseradish cream sauce though the recipe I use varies from yours. I don’t use mayo – I do add a tablespoon of worcestershire and a few drop of lemon juice. The yorkshire pudding was fantastic. Being my first time to make it I did use a mix but my guests liked it.

        I’m getting a three rib roast and using All of the fresh herbs and technique that you recommend from getting the chine bones cut and retied to the horseradish sauce. I also want Au jus and sauteed mushrooms. Any suggestions for recipes? I have loved all of the stuff that I’ve tried!

      Hi- I noticed in the video that you plugged something into the inside of the oven. Is that a second meat thermometer?

        It sure is! That is a built-in meat thermometer that plugs into the oven. It came with the oven. It’s quite handy to not have to keep checking on the temperature but there are others you can purchase that work similarly.

    I am making this for Christmas dinner. I plan to cook to med. rare, but have family that prefer medium and a few need well done. Suggestions? Thank you.

      Hi Kimberly, the great thing about prime rib is you can have different variations of doneness depending on how you cut it – the center of the roast would be for those who love it medium rare and the edges for those who prefer medium or well done. Cook in the center to medium or medium-rare based on the chart.

    My first time making prime ribs. The cooking times were right on. We like our prime rib rare. It turned out just as well as prime rib I have ordered in restaurants. Eager to try out more of Natashas recipes!!

    Hi Natasha
    I love your videos and have successfully made several of your recipes. I want to make the prime rib but we are only two people. Would this method work for a smaller 2 lb roast or should I sear it on the stove then roast as directed on the lower temperature? I have a gas oven oven with convection feature. Thanks!

      Hi Ann Marie, I’m so happy you are enjoying our recipes! That should work! I would suggest following the cooking time stated per pound of meat and using a meat thermometer to verify the correct temperature. With a roast that small, it would be safest to use a meat thermometer to avoid drying it out.

    Hi Natasha,

    What was the extra probe you used in the meat and then plugged into the side of your oven, I have never seen one before?

    I also tried to read what brand meat thermometer you were using in the video?

    Cheers,
    John

        Hi Natasha – I have a Thermador too. Did you use convention bake, bake, or convection roast setting?

          Hi Ruby I use the regular bake mode. If using the other settings, I would definitely recommend using a meat thermometer to double check the temperature since convection will cook faster.

            Thank you so much. I could only find a 1.5 lb bone in single rib at the butcher today . Making this for company tomorrow (4 people). Is it ok to not cut the bone off and just follow instructions?

            Hi Ruby, I think it would work with a boneless prime rib as well, but it may cook faster. I definitely would recommend using a meat thermometer to check for doneness. I haven’t tried that so I don’t have any specific adjustments for you.
