Step 1

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!
