Perfect Pepper and Herb-Crusted Prime Rib


  • 1 (15 lb.) Certified Angus Beef ® bone-in ribeye roast
  • 1/4 cup coarse cracked black pepper
  • 3 tbsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. granulated garlic
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tsp. dry rosemary
  • 2 tsp. dry oregano
  • 2 tsp. dry thyme leaves


  1. Combine pepper, salt, garlic, cornstarch and dried herbs. Tie the roast every 1 1/2 to 2 inches with butcher’s twine. Rub the entire roast with seasoning blend and refrigerate overnight, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap on a sheet pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 275°F. Place roast on a rack lined with foil in a shallow roasting pan, fat-side down. Roast, uncovered, for 120 minutes.
  3. Flip roast so that fat side is now up; discard foil. Insert an ovenproof meat thermometer into thickest part of the roast, avoiding bone or fat. Continue roasting approximately 1 hour. Look for 120-125°F on thermometer.
  4. Rotate roasting pan and increase oven temperature to 450°F. Roast on high for 15 minutes to deepen crust. Final internal temperature should be 130-135°F when pulling from oven for a deep pink interior.
  5. Transfer roast to a cutting board and let rest 20 minutes before removing twine and carving.
