Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 5 pounds boneless ribeye roast, trimmed
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 7 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups beef stock

Instructions

  • Coat the prime rib with salt, and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 500°F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and pepper.
  • Spread the butter mixture evenly over the ribeye roast.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Turn off the oven heat, but leave the ribeye roast in the oven for 2 hours. Be sure to leave the oven door shut so that no heat can escape. I recommend beginning to check the internal temperature after about an hour.
  • Remove the roast from the oven. Transfer it to a carving board, covering it loosely with aluminum foil for about 20 minutes before cutting into it, and pour the pan drippings into a medium saucepan to make the gravy.
  • Heat the drippings over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and beef stock until thickened.
  • Remove from the heat and strain out any clumps.
  • Slice the prime rib and serve with gravy.
