Standing Beef Rib Roast
Instructions
The Night Before:
  1. Unwrap the roast and place it in the refrigerator, uncovered. This will dry out the surface of the meat, which will help ensure that the rib roast takes on a nice brown color during cooking. Be sure to write down the exact weight of the rib roast before you throw away the packaging. You're going to need this to calculate how long to roast the meat.
3 Hours Before Cooking:
  1. Take it out of the refrigerator and place it on a sheet pan; let it sit at room temperature until it's time to start cooking.
30 Minutes Before Cooking:
  1. Preheat the oven to 500° F. Combine the kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Rub the seasoning mix all over the rib roast.
  2. Calculate your roasting time* (see below). Place the standing beef rib roast in a baking pan with a rack; fat side up.
  3. Place the rib roast in the preheated oven. Set the timer for the number of minutes you calculated that your roast will need to cook. When the cooking time is up, turn off the oven and DO NOT open the oven door. Let the roast sit in the hot oven for 2 hours. Again, DO NOT open the oven door during this time. Just leave it alone, it will be fine.
  4. After 2 hours, remove the rib roast from the oven. It's ready to serve.
Recipe Notes

*The closed oven method of cooking a standing beef rib roast (prime rib) is easy, but you do need to do a bit of calculating. The amount of time you roast the prime rib will depend on its exact weight. Make note of the weight then multiply it by 5. So, for example, if your rib roast is 6 pounds, you would roast it for 30 minutes: 6 x 5 = 30 minutes.
