  • In a small dish, mix together the lemon-pepper seasoning, paprika, garlic salt, rosemary and cayenne pepper. Rub over the entire roast.

  • Place the roast with the fat side up on a roasting rack set inside a shallow roasting pan.

  • Bake for 1 hour and 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the roast reaches your desired degree of doneness, or at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C) for medium-rare. Medium is recommended: 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Let the roast rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving into thin slices.

My kitchen smelled heavenly while this was roasting and the flavor did not disappoint! We had company over and everybody loved it! The only thing I did a little differently was that I added a little oil to the dry rub and made it a paste. I also found that it took significantly longer than 1 hour 40 minutes to reach the proper internal temperature but it was worth the wait! Read More

I made this for my in-laws for Christmas Eve dinner. It was fantastic. The only thing I did differently was coat the outside of the roast with Worstershire Sauce so the rub had something to stick on. Read More

Absolutely wonderful and as Mina stated in the intro. I sprayed a very light coating of olive oil before applying the rub and let the meat rest about a half hour before putting it in the oven. Read More

I gave this 5 stars because it was so easy. To be honest I used a variety of herbs because that's what I had in the pantry(Italian mix-rosemary thyme oregano) plus garlic salt paprika pepper and a dousing of worcestishire like another reviwer sugested. It came out perfectly and the herb mixture couting the outside was heavenly. I used the same mixture on some new potatos and roasted them while the roast rested...a perfect and easy meal. Thanks a lot for the recipe I am no longer afraid I'll ruin a good roast! Read More

This rub was perfect. The rib roast came out tender and juicy. Half of my siblings were dredding the roast considering that it is usually tough and flavorless but everyone went back for seconds and said it was delicious! Read More

I made this for Christmas and everyone enjoyed it. However with so much cayenne this is definitely an adult taste. You may wish to adjust for younger people or those that don't go for spicy foods. The drippings made a fantastic gravy. Read More
