Ingredient                                                          Amount


Step 1

Prime Rib Rub                                                ½ cup per 6 # of prime rib

Step 2

Cooking – 300 degrees                                               As needed

Water                                                              2 cups  

Options: Rub:  Try using variations of the rub to make exciting dinner options for you and your guest.   Service:  Using variations of the rub as mentioned above, buy a whole ribeye, cut it into three equal pieces and rub each piece with  a different rub and cook.  This will give everyone a chance to try three differently flavored meats during a meal.

Always wash your hands and sanitize your work area and equipment before starting any recipe.

Step 1

  • Create your rub using your favorite seasonings and a little bit of liquid.
  • Using the rub make sure to cover then entire piece of meet you are cooking, including the bottom.
  • Place seasoned piece of meat in the roasting pan and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Allow to sit at least 4 hours refrigerated, with the preference being overnight.

Step 2

  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
  • Adjust your shelves placing one shelf on the very bottom and one shelf in the center of the oven for the meat.
  • Using a metal pan, fill it with water and place it on the bottom shelf of the oven.
  • Place the roasting pan with meat in the oven uncovered.
  • Using a stay-in-place thermometer or a bi-therm check the internal temperature of the meat every 30 minutes after the first hour of cooking.
  • Once meat is finished cooking remove from the oven.

Step 3

  • Once the Prime Rib is cooked to your desired doneness, carve into steaks of your desired thickness and serve.
