How To Make no-fear prime rib

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Poke garlic pieces into the fat by cutting small slits into the fat with a sharp knife. Spread the cloves out over the whole fatty surface.

    Meanwhile, mix a rub of the seasoned salt and pepper. Rub over the entire surface of the roast. Place rib-side down into a roaster and bake for 30 minutes. The high heat seals the meat and keeps the juices in place.

    Lower temp to 350 and continue to bake for 1-2 hrs depending on desired meat preference when done. A meat thermometer is key! Rare = 125-130. Medium = 135-140. Well done = forget about it... the meat is never as good!

    Set meat on platter as you prepare the au jus. Strain off fat. Reserve juice and bits. Pour in broth; bring to a boil. Keep warm as you slice the roast. (Be prepared, the juices will pour out! Yummy!) Serve each piece with a generous spoon of au jus.
