We enjoyed a prime rib on Christmas Day at our home. And let me tell you, it was fabulous.

It was so good that I was still talking about it on Wednesday on the radio. After numerous calls asking for the recipe, we realized we just had to put it on the website for you.

The process took most of the day, but it's easy and well worth it.. And with the going rate of around $12 a pound, meaning the average cost of a meal will set you back over fifty bucks, I wouldn't give you anything but a method that does work.

Recipe For Perfect Prime Rib:

  • Remove meat from refrigerator and set on counter for 1 hour allowing to warm to room temperature. During this time, rub in some worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper around the entire outside of the roast. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place in shallow pan, no water, uncovered and bake in 375 oven for 1 hour.
  • Turn oven off. DO NOT open oven door. Let roast stand in oven for 3 hours.
  • Turn oven back on (375 degrees) and warm meat back up for 30 to 40 minutes based on how well you want your prime rib cooked. You will have to check the roast during this part of the process to get it done to the point that you like it.

The size of your roast and whether it has a bone in it will make the last step vary in time. A roast with a bone in will cook faster.

I did a 4 pound boneless, and after 35 minutes into the final step, it was nice and medium done.
