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!!

This is my first time making the prime rib, and it is really amazing. Just like other reviews, the center is a little rare to our family, but at least no blood coming out. I will for sure use this recipe again.

Outside of all the smoke in the kitchen for the first 40 minutes, this worked perfectly, dead on medium as planned. I'll have a fan going next time.

I 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.

So 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!

Had 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

I 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.
