You will need approximately one pound of prime rib per person.

Cooking Prime Rib Tips

Oven should be preheated to 325. Meanwhile rub the rib generously with your seasonings -
(see our All Time Best Seller - Prime Steak and Beefburger Seasoning)
 - and place in a shallow roasting pan.

Place the rib in the oven and roast until the internal temperature is 125 for rare or 135 for medium. This allows for after-cooking.

High heat will tend to dry your meat, give you less yield and produce an unevenly cooked roast. Always allow the meat to rest once it is removed from the oven. Do not carve immediately.

 It's the official time to drag out the grill, burn some meat, drink some drinks, chase kids around and have a great time with friends and family in the backyard.
