Foolproof Rib Roast

This is a fantastic rib roast recipe! The cooking method is certainly unorthodox, but we tried this yesterday and followed it exactly and the roast was moist, tender, and absolutely delicious. My husband and son LOVED the way this came out - so good! It was a very nice treat for something different. If and when we have rib roast again, we will definitely use this same recipe and cooking method. The seasoning rub gave a nice flavor without being overpowering, and allowed the flavors of the roast to really shine through.

Foolproof Rib Roast by SALSIEPIE on AllRecipes

1 (5 pound) standing beef rib roast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Allow roast to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Combine the salt, pepper and garlic powder in a small cup. Place the roast on a rack in a roasting pan so that the fatty side is up and the rib side is on the bottom. Rub the seasoning onto the roast.
  3. Roast for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Turn the oven off and leave the roast inside. Do not open the door. Leave it in there for 3 hours. 30 to 40 minutes before serving, turn the oven back on at 375 degrees F to reheat the roast. The internal temperature should be at least 145 degrees F. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before carving into servings.


  1. Rebekah, this looks and sounds wonderful. We had this on Christmas at our son's house, though not prepared this way, and it did not look nearly as good as this one. I am normally not a fan, because of all the fat, but might be tempted to try it this way.

    Happy New Year to you and family and hope all is going well with the little princess in the house.
