  1. Stir warm water, coffee, kosher salt, onion soup mix, onion, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce in a 16-quart stock pot until salt and onion soup mix has dissolved. Lay roast in the brine and cover pot; refrigerate at least 8 hours. Turn roast over at least twice during brining.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Remove roast from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Place roast on a rack in a roasting pan with the fat side down; sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Flip roast and season other side the same way. Let roast stand until it reaches room temperature, about 1 hour.
  4. Place roast into preheated oven and bake for 1 hour.
  5. Turn off heat and leave meat in the hot oven, without opening oven door, for 3 hours. Turn oven back on and set heat for 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Let roast reheat until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the roast reads 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) for medium-rare, 30 to 40 minutes.

I made this for a 50th Birthday Party and it was absolutely delicious. I have to say that I was concerned about brining such an excellent cut of meat in coffee but decided I would give it a try ...

Five star reviews always get my attention and I was intrigued seeing brewed coffee as one of the ingredients. I halved the recipe because my roast was only 3 to 4 lbs. I marinated it overnight ...

Made exactly as written and flavor is outstanding! The only change I made was to cooking time. I found a fool-proof method that cooks it to a perfect medium rare center every time. Pre-heat oven...

This is the first prime rib roast that I have ever made. I decided to try it for Christmas and it turned out amazing. It was juicy and well seasoned. It was just as good as the beef in the major...
