prime rib2-6 pounds bone prime rib roast (boned and tied)
1 cup butter
5 cloves of butter, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon thyme, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon oregano, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper


  1. Remove the prime rib from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before to bring it to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450º.
  2. In a small bowl mix butter, garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper. Rub all of the butter on the outside of your prime rib and plave in a roasting pan or large skillet with the fat side up.
  3. Cook for 15 minutes and reduce the temperature to 325º. It is about 15 minutes per pound of meat. Bake until it reaches an internal temperature of 110º.
  4. Remove from oven and let it rest with foil for at least 20 minutes. The temperature will rise to 130º for a medium rare prime rib.

(I melted the butter with the garlic and spices and poured over the prime rib. It turned out great.)
