Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter and garlic together in a bowl. Poke several holes in roast with a sharp knife. Rub butter mixture all over roast and season meat with salt and black pepper. Place roast, fat-side up, in a roasting pan.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and continue cooking until roast is reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

FlyingHippy, of course yours burnt. This recipe is for a RIBEYE ROAST--not ribeye steaks.

Easiest Christmas meal ever! I combined 2tsp thyme, 1 tsp salt, pepper, 10 cloves of garlic, and 3 tbsp of olive oil in a bowl and poured this mixture over the roast. I left the 10 lb rib ey...

Can't go wrong with simple salt and pepper seasoning. The butter on the outside creates a "crust" (I used lots of pepper and kosher salt over the butter) once it's in the very hot oven. Most ...

I have used this recipe several times now and it always turns out great! It's very easy. I did make one change and that was to use minced onion instead of garlic. Otherwise it's perfect.

Too much butter, but the cooking method was perfect - I've always made slits all over my roasts and inserted garlic (watched my grandmother do that). And I did use about 1/2 stick of butter -- ...
