  1. Place the roast in a roasting pan with the fatty side up. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Spread the mixture over the fatty layer of the roast, and let the roast sit out until it is at room temperature, no longer than 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
  3. Bake the roast for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and continue roasting for an additional 60 to 75 minutes. The internal temperature of the roast should be at 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) for medium rare.
  4. Allow the roast to rest for 10 or 15 minutes before carving so the meat can retain its juices.

Fairly standard roasting directions. Marinade nothing special. I'm curious as to what makes other reviewers believe this average "recipe" is 5-star caliber.

I've never been so sure that a recipe deserved five stars. This is the absolute perfect prime rib. I followed the directions exactly, only adjusting the time spent baking at 325 for my 7 1/2 p...

Wonderful! Even though I cooked a 4.5 lb roast, I made the amount of garlic mixture called for in the recipe, which covered the fat very generously and produced a delicious crust. One reviewer m...

who knew making prime rib could be so simple! I have to say that this is the best piece of beef I have ever prepared. The au jus was eloquent! Just the right proportion of ingredients. The c...

My first prime rib, but not my last, I can't believe how easy this was, and so good. I made this for 8 adults and it got rave reviews, my husband said it was the best he ever had. I was so nervo...

I tried this recipe and it is awesome! I used a smaller cut of meat and adjusted the seasonings. Use an instant read thermometer and you cannot go wrong. I'm planning on using it again for our C...

Oh, my! This is absolutely fabulous, I can't believe that I made it. I used a 5.44 lb roast and followed the suggestions listed below. Thanks, Chen!!

Excellent flavor and easy to do. (Though I'm always a wee bit nerveous when making Prime Rib.) I followed the other Reviewers suggestions and dropped the searing temp. to 460 degrees and increas...
