Standing Rib Roast

2:12 PM

Standing Rib Roast, succulent, exceptionally flavorful, and looks stunningly elegant on the holiday table.  This prime cut of meat can be intimidating to cook but rest assured it is effortless.



For our Christmas dinner, we have enjoyed Standing Rib Roast, also known as prime rib roast, for several years now, and this last year I decided to try my hand at making Popovers to go with our meal.  They turned out fabulous, perfect addition, so I think I will try the Yorkshire Pudding this year.

We decided to keep the sides simple too.  We served Creamy Baked Mashed Potatoes and my Magic Green Beans. Simple is always best.


I have three tips to guarantee your Standing Rib Roast with turn out perfect every time. 


(1)  Use the bones as a rack for cooking the prime rib.  Get your butcher to prep your roast by cutting the bones off the meat and then have him tie the bones back to the meat.  This also lends a slice of more flavorful meat.  Also, the carving is much easier to handle.


(2)  Dry brine the meat.  Using salt and an excellent dry steak, seasoning on the Standing Rib Roast, leaving it on for several days, and cooking it.  The salt and the dry steak seasoning seeps into the meat and deliver the juiciest of succulent beef.


(3)  Use an internal meat thermometer while cooking the prime rib.  An internal meat thermometer is the only way to cook a prime rib just the way you like it. 


You will want to cook the prime rib until the meat thermometer registers as follow:


  • 115-120 degrees F. for rare
  • 125-130 degrees F. for medium rare
  • 135-140 degrees F. for medium
  • 145-150 degrees F. for medium well

Removing the prime rib from the oven for medium rare when the internal temperature reaches 125 degrees F. Then, rest for about 20-30 minutes before slicing.
