Well, my wife's favorite meal in the world is prime rib. For some reason I have never tried to make one. Well that ended today. I did some research and cooking technique were all over the board. Sear first, sear last, don't sear.... I finally found decided to try one method that was different from all and I'm glad i did.

I started with a 6lb rib roast. I love my pork rubs but don't deal much with beef rubs so I kept it pretty basic.

Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Paprika
pinch of dry thyme
fresh rosemary (chopped rough)

The key was in the cooking process. Here are the steps I took.

1. I set the rib roast out for 3 hour to try and get it closer to room temp. (It was 60 degrees at cook time)
2. generously applied the rub ( I like a good crust so I am probably more liberal than most with my rubs)
3. Set oven to 300 degrees and waited until the internal temp got to 124 degrees ( I was shooting for 120 but missed) and here is the trick....
4. Take the rib roast out and cover and let rest for 20 minutes while you turn the oven up to 550 degrees.
5. Once the rib roast has set for 20 mins the internal temp should be up about 5 degrees. Mine got up to 129 degree.
6. Now put in back in the 550 degree oven and this will allow you to finish to your desired crust and allow you to avoid the over cooking of the edges so instead of 1/2' to 1" of gray medium well edges you will have medium rare all the way to the crust.

This was so easy to do and you don't have to get pans out to sear pre or post.

My wife is a prime rib guru and she loved it so i'll put that as a feather in my cap.

Here are some pics.

Resting at 120 degrees
