Christmas Rib Roast (Prime Rib) Recipe

This fantastic Rib Roast is the perfect meal for a Christmas dinner!


1 standing rib roast (about 1/2 pound per person) 1 tbsp. kosher salt 2 tsp. black pepper 1 bunch fresh rosemary


  1. Remove rib roast from packaging and place in a roasting pan. Let come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 230º.

  2. Generously cover all sides of the rib roast with salt and pepper. Place roast in a roasting pan fat-side up. Arrange half the rosemary in the bottom of the pan around the roast.

  3. Roast 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 175º and cook 1 hour 30 minutes more for medium-rare. (Plan on about 15 minutes per pound.)

  4. Remove roast from oven, cover with foil, and let rest 20 minutes.

  5. To serve, slice along ribs to remove them, then separate each rib and put them aside. Slice the roast crossways against the grain. Serve on a platter with the ribs and the remaining half fresh rosemary.
