Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib
December 26, 2012

Disable your smoke detectors if you prepare your roast this way! *UPDATE: Decided to try this again 6yrs later. Different oven but after the two hours, the roast is 3 degrees under the 130 I wanted. Still no Herbes de Provence - used rosemary, oregano, and marjoram. Putting the oven back on to 375 for 30 minutes. * My oven cooled down much faster than two hours I feel because we had to open the windows. So, my roast was rare. I should have stuck to my instincts in preparing this cut of beef, but thought I'd give the method a try. I also did not use butter as the cut is fatty enough, nor the seasoning suggested. I rubbed crushed garlic, kosher salt, and peppercorns over the top & sides and made the 'Chef John' AuJus which worked very well and even left a great flavor on the palete of my fastidious 7yr old Asperger son - AFTER I finished cooking the meat, of course!
