Ingredients

  • 1 cup 1

    cup butter, softened

  • 7 cloves 7

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons 2

    tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons 2

    tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons 2

    tablespoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon 1

    tablespoon pepper

  • 1 1

    (5- to 7-pound) boneless ribeye roast, trimmed

  • 2 tablespoons 2

    tablespoons flour

  • 2 cups 2

    cups beef stock

Directions

Preheat oven to 500°F. Mix together butter, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl until evenly combined. Rub the herb butter all over the rib roast, then place on a roasting tray with a rack. Bake 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. 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. Once the 2 hours are up, remove the roast from the pan and pour the pan drippings into a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, whisking until there are no lumps, then add beef stock, stirring and bringing the sauce to a boil. Remove from heat and strain the sauce into a gravy dish. Carve prime rib into 3/4-inch slices, then serve with mashed potatoes, green beans, and sauce. Enjoy!
