Garlic and Herb Standing Rib Roast

Yield 12 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces meat)
A standing rib roast makes a grand statement at the table. You do not need to ask your butcher for a frenched roast (one that has had the meat stripped from the bones); a regular standing rib roast will work just as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 (5-pound) standing rib roast, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Parsley sprigs (optional)
  • Roasted garlic heads (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.

  2. Place roast on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Combine thyme, salt, pepper, and 4 garlic cloves; rub over roast. Bake at 450° for 45 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat to 350° (do not remove roast from oven). Bake roast at 350° for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (medium-rare) or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with parsley and roasted garlic, if desired.
