I first saw this Buzzfeed recipe on a friend's Facebook page. I saved the video and have been planning to make it ever since. Since Ribeye (boneless) or Prime Rib (bone-in) is an expensive cut of meat, I waited for a sale. Last week, Prime Rib went on sale so I snatched one up to give this recipe a go. So glad I did. You will be too.
Just today (Sept 24, 2017) Renatta posted,
Back to cooking...let your butter come to room temperature so it's easy to incorporate the garlic and herbs.
Spread the garlic herb butter evenly all over the roast. Use it all to generously coat the roast.
Preheat your oven to 500 F, then put your roast into the oven. Cook 5 minutes per pound. Then turn off the oven and keep the door closed for 2 hours. Do NOT open the door. This was a 3.5 pound Prime Rib roast (bone-in). I cooked it at 500 F for 20 minutes and left it for 2 hours. If you like your meat medium rare, that's what you'll end up with.Thanks for sharing the video Renatta. Perfection!
Prime Rib with Garlic Herb Butter
1 cup butter, softened
7 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon pepper
5-7 pounds boneless ribeye roast, trimmed
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups beef stock
Mashed potatoes, to serve
Veggies, to serve (suggestions: turnip, peas, green beans, or whatever you like)
1. Preheat oven to 500°F/260°C.
2. Mix together the butter, garlic, herbs, salt, and pepper in a bowl until evenly combined.
3. Rub the herb butter all over the rib roast, then place on a roasting tray with a rack.
4. Bake for 5 minutes per pound of meat — so a 5-pound roast would bake for 25 minutes and a 7-pound roast would bake for 35 minutes.
5. Turn off the heat and let the rib roast sit in the oven for 2 hours, making sure you do not open the oven door or else the residual heat will escape.
6. Once the 2 hours are up, remove the roast from the pan and pour the pan drippings into a saucepan over medium heat.
7. Add the flour, whisking until there are no lumps, then add the beef stock, stirring and bringing the sauce to a boil.
8. Remove from heat and strain the sauce into a gravy dish.
9. Carve the prime rib into ¾-inch slices, then serve with the mashed potatoes, green beans, and sauce!
All things cooking, from simple and clean to gourmet and exotic (and everything in between) have been my passion for over 30 years. Since discovering Pinterest, I pretty much exclusively cook from the recipes I PIN. My saying is, "if you can PIN it, you can cook it". I love to PIN recipes and I love to cook. I thought, why not blog the recipes I make from my Pinterest food boards. I'm the self-declared, Pincook.
