Serving Size: 15 Preparation Time: 0:15
7 pounds bone-in beef rid roast — external cap of fat removed
3 tablespoons seasoning salt — to taste
2 pounds rock salt — to cover
Before cooking the prime rib, bring the beef to room temperature. Usually 2 -3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a large roasting pan, add the rock salt to cover bottom of pan. Liberally, season the beef and place in the roaster. Cook the prime rib at 325°F for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until it reaches an internal temperature of 110°F. Remove from the oven, cover lightly with aluminum foil, and allow to stand for 1 hour or until an internal temperature of 130°F.
NOTES: When cooking prime rib, it is important to allow the large piece of beef to rest to the desired internal temperature. The less done the better. For serving, cooking prime rib allows you serve medium well (end cuts), medium, and medium rare (center cuts) servings of prime rib.
