How to Select and Roast Prime Rib

H-E-B Chef Scott shows us how to roast a tender prime rib and create a flavorful crust using two ingredients: spice rub and H-E-B Organic Dijon Mustard.

When selecting prime rib, plan for 1 lb. per person. During cooking the fat will render down, resulting in 8-10 oz. per person.

Step-by-step Instructions

Step 1: Preheat Oven and Prep the Prime Rib

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Place the prime rib on cutting board with the fat side up. Use a paring knife to make small incisions at an angle to the side of fat. Take the slices of garlic and place inside at an angle—the garlic will melt and permeate the meat as it cooks. You can stuff as much garlic as you'd like.

Tip: Don't cut straight down into the meat and place the garlic straight down, because by the time it cooks, the garlic will come out. It's best to place them at an angle.

Step 2: Season Prime Rib

Squeeze the Dijon mustard over the top of the meat and use your hands to massage it evenly into the prime rib until it's completely coated. Shake the seasoning over the top, sides and bottom of the prime rib. Apply seasoning liberally.

Step 3: Roast Prime Rib

Place an oven-safe probe thermometer into the center of the prime rib, so while it's cooking, we'll know the exact temperature. Place the prime rib in a roasting pan with the fat side up. Cook prime rib for 20-25 minutes per pound at 325°F.

Tip: Once the prime rib is in the oven, keep the door closed in order to regulate the heat and allow the prime rib to develop a crust.

Step 4: Remove from the Oven

Check if the internal temperature has reached 135°F. Using an oven mitt, remove the roasting pan from oven and place on a heat resistant counter or pot-holder(s).

Step 5: Let the Prime Rib Rest

Before cutting, tent the prime rib loosely with aluminum foil for 15-20 minutes. This ensures all the juices redistribute and each slice of prime rib is tender and juicy.
