Ingredients

  • Prime Rib:

  • 1

    (10 pound) prime rib roast

  • 10

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 2

    teaspoons salt

  • 2

    teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 2

    teaspoons dried thyme

  • Au Jus:

  • 2

    tbsp flour

  • 1

    quart cold beef broth

  • 2

    teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • ½

    cup red wine

  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Prime Rib: Place the roast in a roasting pan with the fatty side up. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Spread the mixture over the fatty layer of the roast, and let the roast sit out until it is at room temperature, no longer than 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Bake the roast for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and continue roasting for an additional 60 to 75 minutes. The internal temperature of the roast should be at 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) for medium rare. Allow the roast to rest for 10 or 15 minutes before carving so the meat can retain its juices. Au Jus: While the prime rib is resting, pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the pan and place on the stovetop over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes to form a roux. Pour in the beef broth and whisk into the roux, scraping all the caramelized beef drippings from the bottom of the pan. Add wine & Worcestershire sauce. Turn heat to high and cook the sauce for 10 minutes until it reduces and thickens slightly (this is not a gravy, so don't expect a thick, heavy sauce). Adjust seasoning, strain and serve along side the prime rib.
