Brenda-Lee's Story

I promise you this comes out perfect. MAke sure NO ONE OPENs THE OVEN DOOR.I all so use Other beef roast... Works sooooo good... I remember i was very scared to do it the first time. But I went ahead and did it. OMG.. What a wonderfull way to cook beef....

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A perfect entree for your holiday meal or a special occasion. Your guests are guaranteed to feel special when they sit down to this meal.

The key is to make sure that you start with a clean oven when using this high temp. Also the Test Kitchen oven only goes up to 500. So, we baked at that temp for 5 min a pound. I like my prime rib on the rarer side, and it came out perfect!

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 550F degrees.
Make a rub of salt, pepper and garlic powder and apply to meat. Place meat in a shallow roasting pan fat side up.

Roast at 550 at 5 minutes per pound for RARE, or 6 minutes per pound for MEDIUM and 7 minutes per pound for WELL DONE.

Turn off oven at the end of cooking time and DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR FOR TWO HOURS.

At the end of the 2 hours, remove meat from oven to slice; it comes out perfect everytime.

Works the same with Roast beef. Try it you won't be disappointed.
