Prime Rib Roast

  • 1 Prime Rib Roast (4 to 6 Pounds)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt & Black pepper
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 2 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 2 tsp Dried Thyme

Roasted Cauliflower

  • 1 Medium Head of cauliflower (a medium sized cauliflower
  • will make about 5-6 slices)
  • 1 Garlic Clove minced
  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon of Italian Herbs or seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup of Gruyere Swiss or Cheddar cheese shredded.

Yorkshire Pudding

  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp Oil or Drippings from Roast



  • Take the prime rib out of the refrigerator and let it sit at
  • room temperature for 1 hour. This will help the meat cook
  • evenly.
  • Preheat your oven to 450°F.
  • Pat the prime rib dry with paper towels and rub it all over
  • with the olive oil.
  • Season the prime rib generously with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, rosemary,
  • and thyme. Rub this mixture over the prime rib.
  • Place the prime rib, fat side up, in a roasting pan and roast it
  • in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F and continue roasting
  • the prime rib until it reaches an internal temperature of
  • 120°F to 125°F for medium-rare, about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Check
  • the temperature with a meat thermometer inserted into the
  • thickest part of the roast.
  • Remove the prime rib from the oven and let it rest for 15
  • minutes. This will allow the juices to redistribute throughout
  • the meat and make it easier to carve.
  • Carve the prime rib into thin slices and serve immediately.
