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)
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.
Once you have butchered across the bone start to cut the bone layer away from the roast.
After you have cut the bones from the roast place the bones to the side.
Drizzle olive oil over the roast on both sides and the piece of bones you just removed.
Smoother the crushed garlic into a thick layer on both sides of the roast and bones.
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!*
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.
Pat the garlic and seasoning that fell off the roast onto the roast.
Spray the roast (on both sides) with oil.
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.
Rotate the Prime Rib so the bones are now facing up for another 30 minutes.
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.
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.
Remove the Prime Rib from the over and let sit for 15 minutes.
Cut and enjoy!
Happy Holidays from our family to yours.
