The Best Prime Rib Yet

Prime Rib is one of my family’s favorite treats to enjoy during the holiday season. I however realized that I have yet to ever make one myself, so I enlisted my brother (aka My Work Bestie), to show me step by step. Now that I have a better idea of how to make the perfect roast I am going to share the secrets with you.

We prefer to cradle our Prime Rib so in order to do that there is some butchering involved. I will give you a step by step on how to properly cut your roast to guarantee the best flavor.


Bone in Prime Rib (we used a 16.35 lb roast)

6 tablespoons of Olive Oil

10 Garlic Cloves finely chopped (to taste)

1 cup Santa Maria Seasoning

Cooking oil spray

Vegetables (of your choosing)

Step one:

You first want to start your cut as close to the bone as possible. You will continue to cut along the outline of the bone.

Step two:

Once you have butchered across the bone start to cut the bone layer away from the roast.

Step three:

After you have cut the bones from the roast place the bones to the side.

Step four:

Drizzle olive oil over the roast on both sides and the piece of bones you just removed.

Step five:

Smoother the crushed garlic into a thick layer on both sides of the roast and bones.

Step six:

Our favorite seasoning is Santa Maria Seasoning (available downtown at BBQ Pros). Generously coat the roast and bones (both sides) with the seasoning.

*HUGE shout out to Patti at Una Bella Salon for making my nails not look like a butchers!*

Step seven:

After seasoning the roast and bone you will need to tie them back together. Using butcher string tie the bones back onto the roast. And then place into a deep pan.

Step eight:

Pat the garlic and seasoning that fell off the roast onto the roast.

Step nine:

Spray the roast (on both sides) with oil.

Step ten:

Place the Prime Rib bone down into pre heated oven on 450 degrees (we used our convection oven) for 30 minutes.

*Make sure your oven is hot before placing roast in the oven.

Step 11:

Rotate the Prime Rib so the bones are now facing up for another 30 minutes.

Step 12:

Flip the roast so the bones are now facing down again. Add the vegetables of your choosing to the pan. Depending on your own personal taste you can add a half of a can of beer to the pan at this time. Turn the oven down to 325 degrees to finish cooking.

Step 13:

Periodically use a baster to baste the remaining liquids over the roast and let cook until the roast reaches 120 degrees for Medium Rare. *Please note cooking time will vary depending on your oven and size of the roast.

Step 14:

Remove the Prime Rib from the over and let sit for 15 minutes.

Step 15:

Cut and enjoy!

Happy Holidays from our family to yours.

*Prime Rib is currently available for $8.50/lb
