Perfect Prime Rib


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... See more 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.

I hope that everyone knows that leaving beef out at room temperature for any longer than four hours is against health code violation and you risk food poisoning.

This may make a good roast, but leaving raw meat out for 7 hours is asking for trouble.
