Prime rib roast with or without bone (any size)
Garlic powder
Olive oil



Preheat oven to 550F degrees for at least 45 minutes

Make a rub of olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder and apply to meat. Place meat in a shallow roasting pan fat side up. Roast at 550 at 5 minutes per pound for RARE, or 6 minutes per pound for MEDIUM and 7 minutes per pound for WELL DONE. Turn off oven at the end of cooking time and DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR FOR TWO HOURS. At the end of the 2 hours, remove meat from oven, let stand for at least 15 minutes before slicing

Cooks note: I take aluminum foil and fold a piece to double and shape it to each end of the rib – secure with wooden toothpicks – this prevents the end pieces from being over done
