- 12 pounds standing rib roast
- Many cooks think there is some special preparation for this popular restaurant meal but there really is nothing special in preparing prime rib. Many times your local grocery store will have standing rib roast on sale at lower prices than ground beef.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place the roast on a rack in a 9-1/2" X 13" baking dish with the fat side up. Insert a meat thermometer into the fat side so the point of the thermometer is in the middle of the roast and not touching any bone or large pieces of fat. Bake the roast for 25 minutes per pound or until the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F. The roast will be pink in the middle. That's all there is to making prime rib.
Flavor your roast with fresh herbs, garlic sliced and inserted into small slits in the fat or spices.[br][br]Serve with Bearnaise Sauce, or Fresh Asparagus with Hollandaise, a baked potato with sour cream and chives and a delightful Cabernet Sauvignon for a perfect meal.
