Elegant and Easy Standing Rib Roast
I am a lover of BEEF! There I said it, I love many types of beef especially rib roast and I think this love has been passed on to my son. As a teenager, we had an unspoken game where he’d try to eat EVERYTHING in sight, and I’d try to create meals where he wasn’t IMMEDIATELY hungry after he ate. I lost MANY MANY times 🙂
Anytime I can find a recipe that screams GOURMET flavor, but utilizes minimal effort it automatically gets a look from me. That’s where this elegant and easy roast comes in. You can’t get much easier, but people will swear you’ve been cooking all day!
5 lb standing rib roast, allowed to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour
1 Tbsp canola oil
2 Tbsp kosher salt
3 Tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
5 fresh minced large garlic cloves
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and rub the roast with the canola oil and minced garlic. Sprinkle with salt, rosemary, and fresh ground pepper. Place the roast on the rack in the roasting pan with the rib side down and the fatty side up. Roast the meat for 1 hour then turn the oven OFF! Leave the roast in the oven but DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR for 3 hours. 30-40 minutes before serving, turn the oven to 375 degrees and reheat the roast.
*DO NOT remove the roast or re-open the oven door from the time the roast in placed in the oven until it is ready to serve! #BonAppetite
