I can't remember who sent this recipe, but it WORKS!
"I was nervous mainly because it was my first time making prime rib. Complete and total success. It was very easy. All I did was season it, roast it at 550 and turn the oven off. Prep time is nothing. Yeshouse was a little smokey, but well worth it. Very tender, juicy and tasty.
Thank you for the recipe!!

preciousjules16 1 month agoI used this recipe for Christmas dinner. It was perfect. Even made another one a week later and cooked it a little closer to rare for prime rib dip. The way to perfection is having a meat thermometer that sets into the meat while cooking. I used one each time and was able to keep watch on it.
wewerebornready 2 months agoSo I have used this recipe more than once and have never had a failure, EVER. I also have never cooked anything less than a 10 lb roast either, ;) Awarded Pami a medal, please do the same if you like this recipe!
Jagchen 2 months agoHad a 4.3 rib and my oven only goes to 500 degrees so added two min per pound did 32 min at 500 then followed instructions when cut into was a little to rare for my liking so cut in 2 cooked 10 min on 450 then perfect
jessicasanchez-tschausoff 2 months agoI made a 4.5 pound roast and it came out perfect. I put it in for 24 minutes, I should have left it in for a couple of minutes more because the center was almost rare. The rest of it was tender and delicious. Will be doing this again.

jewelrnbw 1 year agoI was skeptical at first, but this turned out amazingly delicious. I cooked it rare then grilled it for anyone who wanted it done more. Also I will slice up leftovers for French Dips.
wewerebornready 1 year agolove this recipe, the name says it all!! I did have the windows open and all the fans running, but that didn't stop the hard wired smoke detector from doing it's job! This is a noisy recipe in my house, but will be using it over and over!!
nbkat2 1 year agoI was amazed at how good this turned out. Next time I will marinate the roast before cooking it this way.

MississippiMule 1 year agoI tried this cooking method with a 4.25# Prime Rib roast and was very disappointed. I roasted, according to the instructions, for a rare roast but it turned out to be a well done roast!
