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.

although a great recipe and an even greater finish - the butter flash searing in the oven made my kitchen and adjoining rooms very hazy(butter fragrance smoke)!

I made this recipe according to the directions except I left the roast in the oven a bit longer we don't like it quite that rare. The cooking method is fine, but I would not make it this way again since the butter made it entirely too greasy.

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!
