Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: North American
Serves: 6 to 8 people
  • 6 Lbs Prime Rib Roast Beef
  • 8 cloves of garlic cut lengthwise into about 3 slivers each
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp course sea salt
  • 3 tsp fresh coarsly ground black pepper
  • 3 tsp fresh thyme chopped fine
  • 1.5 tsp fresh rosemary chopped fine
  1. Place the meat on a rack inside a roasting pan and let the meat sit for one to two hours to reach room temperature.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 425 ºF.
  3. With a thin sharp knife, cut into the meat and place a sliver into the whole. Repeat this step all around the meat until all garlic slivers are used.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, thyme and rosemary. Pour the mix over the meat one spoonful at-a-time and rub the mixture into and all around the meat until all the mixture is used.
  5. Place the meat inside the hot oven and let it cook on high for 15 minutes.
  6. Lower the oven to 300 ºF and let it keep cooking. Using an oven thermometer with a probe, check the internal temperature after about an hour. The entire process could take up to around 2 to 2.5 hours. Cook until the thermometer reads 140 ºF (130 ºF for medium rare). Note never leave the oven door open for long while measuring to avoid loosing heat.
  7. Remove the meat from the oven and let it rest with aluminum foil tented over the meat. This insures that the juices flow back into the meat and prevents it from becoming dry.
  8. Cut thin slices and serve with your favourite sides and gravy.
