    Ended up being medium through the middle instead of medium rare - removed from the oven when the meat thermometer read 132 degrees in the middle. I will take it out sooner next time.

    It turned out perfectly. Ours was 6.8 lbs with the bones cut off and retied to the roast. Ask the butcher and they will be happy to do this. After searing and rubbing it went in the 500° oven for 20 minutes and then switched to convection at 300° for just under an hour. Temp was abour 130° and I left it to rest (in the roaster with the lid on) for over an hour while I did the yorkshires, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad & veg. My honey is a happy man! 🙂

    The first time I made this it was delicious!! Unfortunately, WAY, WAY, too over done for me(I personally prefer my red meat, steaks, roast etc. very rare) The prime rib I had was was maybe 6lbs so I believe I needed to reduce cooking time a great deal for my preference. I’m trying it again, this time I have the bone in Prime Rib and it’s 6.47lbs. I’ll update one done. I seasoned it as I usually season my steaks, pretty much the same way as she describes in the instructions here. The picture is the meat seasoned before cooking. All herbs, butter and garlic will be removed before searing in the cast iron skillet. I’ll update once done. Searing in a cast iron skillet in the other picture. About to go in the oven in the other picture

    top marks. started with a 6.5 prime roast which sounds like half of pioneer womans roast prior to her dividing hers in two. followed the instructions with following exception. 1. i used a self made rub of 2 teaspoon sea salt, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 3. 2 teaspoons thym. 4. 2 teaspoons fresh cracked peppe. all mixed up...only used half. also had 6 cloves garlic with rosemary. Sear the roast without and herbs or for big roast, they are heavy and hot. after searing, set on plate and use rub on all sides including caps. for the rosemary and garlic take a paring knife and in center of roast make 1 to 2 in slits, stuff with garlic and rosmary. do not sear with herbs on, they can get bitter.. as for time, just watch the 30 at 300 and have a good meat thermometer. plesse let it rest tented 30 minutes and gather juices from the pan and where rested to add to your au jus or gravy...loaded with flavor. enjoy

    This Prime Rib was a show stopper! My husband paid me more compliments on this than any other recipe i have used the crust complimented the beef so well and each bite was delicious Each recipe of Ree Drummond’s that I try is a keeper!!

    This was better than any prime rib I’ve ever had at any restaurant. The rub turns into a delectable crust that is AMAZING!! The trick with this roast is patience, and a meat thermometer.. I brought roast to room temperature prior to cooking then I cooked ours slightly rare, at 155 degrees and tented for 20 minutes. Perfection:)

    The recipe was a success, but the slow roast cooking period was much much longer for me. After the initial 30 minutes at 500 degrees I’d say it was closer to and hour at 300 degrees for my 6 lbs prime rib to reach the point of rare. I pulled my prime rib out when my meat thermometer reached 119. I let it rest for 20 minutes to get to 127.

    Great recipe. Easy to make. First time a little bit well done and skin was too salty but that’s my fault really hahaha
    Cooked this for the family 2 Christmas’s ago. Asked the almost grown kiddos what they wanted this year for Christmas and I got the make the Pioneers lady prime rib Mom!!!! It was so good so I’m all set for Christmas morning. Now I just have to make my red velvet cheesecake cake! So anyone scared in making prime rib don’t be go for it it really is and beautiful cut of meat the flavor is Devine and I think hands down easier to cook than grilled chicken! Happy cooking brave!
