The perfect prime rib recipe can be easy too. This dish has less than 5 ingredients and can be dressed up with rosemary sprigs.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • (6-lb.) prime rib roast (about 3 ribs)
  • Fluffy Horseradish Sauce
  • Garnish: rosemary sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Combine salt, pepper, and olive oil; rub evenly over roast. Place roast on a wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan.

  2. Bake at 450° for 45 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350°, and bake 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 145° (medium-rare) or to desired degree of doneness. Remove from oven, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let stand 20 minutes before slicing. Serve with Fluffy Horseradish Sauce. Garnish, if desired.
