Prime Rib Roast
The most perfectly cooked Prime Rib Roast. Super simple. This would be an excellent dish to make for Valentines Day or an Anniversary Dinner. Leftovers make excellent beef sandwiches.
Ingredients: 4-6 lb. Butcher Box prime rib roast ( I cooked 2 - 4.3 lb. roasts) 1 c. butter (softened at room temperature) 1/2 c. prime rib seasoning from Costco Directions: Once the butter has softened, mix in the seasoning till it's thoroughly combined. Remove the prime rib from the fridge an hour before popping in the oven. Smear the butter mixture over the entire roast. Place on a rack inside a roasting pan. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Pop the roast into the oven at 500 degrees for 32 minutes. You are supposed to cook it at 500 for 7 minutes per pound. I had a 4.3 lb., so it was cooking at 500 for 32 minutes. After the timer goes off, turn the oven off. DO NOT open the oven door. Leave it in the oven for 2 hours, undisturbed. No peeking, no cracking open the door, just leave it alone. Pull it out of the oven after the 2 hours. Insert a thermometer to make sure it hits medium rare. Let it rest for 15 minutes, before you start cutting. It will be perfectly cooked.
