  • 1 (4 pound) rib roast

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed

  • ¼ cup sea salt

  • 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).

  2. Brush rib roast lightly with olive oil. Rub sea salt, black pepper, and garlic into the roast. Place fatty-side up on a rack set inside a shallow pan.

  3. Roast in the preheated oven until browned, about 30 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and tent pan with aluminum foil. Continue cooking until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the rib roast registers 140 degrees (60 degrees C), about 1 hour.

  4. Let rib roast stand for 10 to 20 minutes before carving.


After you reduce the oven temperature, count on 15 minutes of roasting time per pound of meat.
