I'm new to cooking, and I recently purchased a rib-eye roast, and had no idea what it was. I put a few ingredients together and cooked it and to my surprise, it was the best prime rib I've ever had. I thought I would share it with you. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix garlic, rosemary, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Pat garlic mixture over entire roast. Make an incision down the middle of the roast, keeping parallel with the bones. Place the roast in a plastic roasting bag and pour Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce into the bag, concentrating on the incision in the roast. Tie the bag and refrigerate roast to marinate, turning often, at least 2 hours.

  • Remove roast from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature, 1 to 2 hours. Remove roast from bag and discard marinade. Place roast, fat-side up, in a roasting pan.

  • Preheat an oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Lower heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue cooking until an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 1 hour. Let roast stand for 20 minutes before slicing.

Editor's Note:

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the marinade ingredients. The actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.

Cook's Note:

I marinate the roast in one of the plastic bags used for vegetables from the grocery store.

Hands down m, AMAZING!! This was my very first attempt at prime rib. I love Prime rib and decided to try it for Easter. Like many of the other reviewers, I was nervous to be experimenting on such an expensive piece of meat. The more reviews I read, the more nervous I got. I read other instructions on cooking prime rib on other sites . Bottom line, don't second guess anything. Follow the instructions to the letter. The only thing I did differently was I marinated mine for three days. I followed the 5 min per pound rule of thumb. I do have a gas oven. (Some suggested issues with this). My family ALL said this was the VERY BEST prime rib they had EVER had anywhere! I agree! I made a yummy horseradish sauce to go with although it really needed nothing else. It was so incredibly tender you could cut it with a butter knife ! LOVE IT!!! Read More

Awesome! There were only 4 of us and I cooked a 2 1/2 pound roast. I cooked the roast for 15 minutes at 500 degrees and then reduced the oven to 325 degrees and cooked the roast for 30 minutes. The roast rested for 20 minutes and it was a delicious medium rare roast. Read More

Turned out amazing! Had great flavor. Only thing I didn't use was rosemary. Took it out of the oven when the middle reached 125-130 degrees and let sit for 15. Read More

I changed it up a bit. I did not use a cooking bag. I rubbed the roast with sea salt and ground black pepper, put it on a roasting pan. I preheated the oven to 500° and cooked the roast for 15 minutes. After lowering the oven temperature to 350°, cooked for 1 hour and 20 minutes. The Prime Rib Roast has a nice crispy crust and the insides were medium rare. It was delicious and cooked to perfection! Read More

Perfection. An absolutely must try rib roast. The rub makes the marinade delicious. My roast was 4.8 ounces and the timing worked out on the button. Thank you! Read More

This was a bit new to me so I followed the directions. It wound up in the marinade a bit longer than 2 hours yet all was fine. Our guests also enjoyed it. I'll do it again. Read More

The prime rib was over cooked which was a terrible thing to do with such an expensive cut of meat. But I did use the leftovers in beef and noodles they were awesome! I gave it a 4 star rating because the flavor was really good but not the jaw dropping flavor that I was expecting. The overcooking was on me. I would try the marinade recipe again though. Read More

First time cooking a prime rib. I wanted the easiest recipe to follow and this was it. The prime rib came out so amazing I am ready to make it for a second time around. I recommend anyone to use this recipe if it’s your first time or you just want to keep it simple. The flavoring of the marinade brought out the best in the prime rib and it was very tender. Read More
