Slow-roasted my standing rib roast for the first time using these directions, and it was the most tender roast ever! I used a rub of dijon mustard/garlic/rosemary/thyme/salt/pepper (taken from a different Cooking Light recipe) without bread crumbs. Roasted at 225 until the meat was at 130 degrees, and it was perfect! (And I went out to a movie while it cooked.) Thanks for this recipe!
