Perfect Prime Rib

Plays:

In this video, you’ll see Chef John’s secret method for creating prime rib that’s perfectly pink and extra moist in the center with a delicious crispy crust. This roasting method hits that magical sweet spot between rare and medium rare. The secret here is…math! But it’s easy math. The trick is to bring the bone-in roast to room temperature before putting it in the oven. Then, it’s a big blast of high heat to sear the surface of the meat, followed by very slow cooking with the oven off. See how it’s done! You’ll also see how to remove the bones before slicing the gorgeous, moist roast. Get the recipe for Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib. It's truly the perfect holiday meal.

WOW! This was my first shot at making prime rib at home. We had a small get together for the football game. It turned out absolutely amazing! I even made the au ju from the recipe offered! Rave review from our guests. Chef John's recipe rocks!

Our first ever attempt at Prime Rib and it was absolutely PERFECT! We had a 2 1/2 lb roast, reduced the initial time to 30 minutes, the sitting time to 2 hours and the reheat to 30 minutes. We let it rest for 30 minutes while we roasted aparagus and rewarmed pre-baked potatoes. The result was a stunning Christmas diiner for 2 - with enough leftover for decadent French Dip Sandwiches the day after.

Are there any suggestions for a boneless prime roast? Ours is about 3.5 lbs. and we like it between rare and medium rare.
