Best Prime Rib Rub

Are you sick of the word “fresh” yet?? Ha! But truly, it will make a difference in this recipe. Beef is a strong-flavored meat, which means it can stand up to a substantial amount of flavor.

How to Cook Prime Rib

The second part of the cooking time is slowly finishing off the cooking process. This slower cook time really gives that fat on the prime rib time to render and seep into the meat, which adds a massive amount of flavor. Fat = flavor!

Why should you let the prime rib rest?

Once you have your prime rib roast cooked about 5 degrees shy of the temperature you want it to finish at, take it out and let it rest. I repeat: LET IT REST. Resting meat really does make a difference! It will cook up to temperature as it rests and the juices will redistribute beautifully throughout the prime rib.

Quality Counts

This goes without saying, but opt for the highest quality prime rib you can. Look for lots of marbling (fat is your friend when it comes to prime rib), bone-in, and opt for prime if you’re able. For truly outstanding results that will knock your socks off, get your hands on dry-aged prime rib.

Plan Ahead

For the best prime rib, salt it ahead of time (preferably the day before), and use plenty of it. Take it out of the fridge for at least an hour or up to two hours before cooking. We love this prime rib recipe with an herbs de Provence crust that gets coated 12 to 48 hours in advance Bonus: this means less work on the big day.

Start out Hot, then Low and Slow

It’s no secret that roasts need to cook slow and slow, but for that killer crust on a prime rib the secret is to hit it with a lot of heat first. Like our other prime rib recipes, this rosemary-rubbed prime rib cooks at 450F for 20 minutes before cooking for another 60 to 90 minutes at 350F.

Let it Rest

Finally, allowing for the best prime rib you need to let it rest at least 15 minutes, but ideally closer to 30 minutes. This will make it juicier and easier to cut. Plus, while it roasts you can whip up a killer sauce like this red wine jus and rosemary butter or this horseradish cream that just bring the whole thing to a another level.
