Have your prime rib and ready to cook? Here are the simple steps for a beautifully cooked roast.

1. THAW - Set your roast on a tray and place in the refrigerator. A prime rib can take 3 to 4 days to thaw from frozen. 2. HEAT OVEN – Set to 400°F 3. OPEN PACKAGE – Remove prime rib from packaging. 4. SEASON – Generously apply salt, pepper, garlic powder, can also use horseradish mustard, mayo, or good old yellow mustard as a binder for your season (Don't worry you won't taste it) or your favorite rub. Be sure to cover all sides, including the ends. 5. ROAST - Set prime rib in a roasting pan and place in the heated oven. The approximate cook time is 15 to 20 minutes per pound. Temperature is the best way to know exactly when the roast is ready. Leave in oven until the internal temperature of your prime rib corresponds with your preferred finish. 110°F for rare, 120°F for medium-rare, 130°F for medium. The prime rib will raise a few more degrees during resting. 6. REMOVE – When your prime rib’s internal temperature reaches your target temperature, remove it from the oven. Do another temperature check, then cover loosely with foil and let it rest for 20 to 30 minutes. It will continue to cook during this time. 7. SLICE & SERVE – Cut your rested prime rib against the grain and serve.
