Perfect Prime Rib

Plays: 316923

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.

This looks amazing and I would love to make this for Christmas dinner. I am expecting 12-13 adults. Does anyone know what size rib roast I would need? Would you also recommend I cut it n half as well?

I was a skeptic and had one of my best clients and their wives for dinner. Used this method and followed the instructions perfectly. Absolutely perfect ! Although... my oven was cold after an hour so I turned it on to 350 for 5 minutes about 1/2 way through and shut it off again. The roast was butter tender and perfectly rare to medium.

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.
