So even though me and Mr. Domesticated Diva are on a health kick (where all we eat and make are salads, chicken, and fish), we like to splurge every now and then and have something fattening and delicious. Hence, why we love this rib roast recipe so much.
The ingredients are simple:
-Ribeye Roast aka Rib Roast aka Standing Rib Roast (4-5 lbs)
-2 1/2 tsp. Salt
-1 1/2 tsp. Pepper
-1 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
-1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
-Disposable Roasting Pan (easy clean up!)
Let the rib roast stand at room temp for about 30 min.
1.) While the rib roast is standing at room temp, mix all the dry ingredients together in a small bowl.
2.) Preheat the oven to 375 F. Place the roasting rack in the roasting pan.
3.) When the roast has sat for 30 min, massage the season mixture throughout the meat. Make sure you rub the meat nice and good!
4.) Roast for one hour in the preheated oven. After one hour of cooking, turn the oven off and leave the roast inside. DO NOT...I REPEAT...DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN TO LOOK AT THE RIB ROAST, SMELL THE RIB ROAST, ADMIRE THE RIB ROAST, ETC!!!
5.) Leave the rib roast in the oven for 3 hours (for a 4 lb roast) and 3 hrs. 45 min. (for a 5 lb roast).
6.) After the roast has sat in the oven for several hours, turn the oven back on to 375 F for 30-40 min. This will make for a prefectly medium rare cooked rib roast.
7.) Remove from the oven and let the roast sit for 5-10 min before carving.
Here's the final product...
Easy, peasy right!
This roast ended up being almost $12/lbs. Yikes! But, you can get rib roast from Randalls at $5.99/lb when it's on sale, and it is on sale pretty often (check the sale ads!)
So really this meal would end up costing $24-$30 for 4 servings!
