Anne’s Foolproof Standing Rib Roast

1 (5-pound) standing rib roast
Salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste

Allow roast to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour. For a medium rare roast preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Rub the roast with the seasonings. Place roast on a rack in the pan with the rib side down and the fatty side up. Roast for 1 hour. Turn off oven and leave the roast in the oven but do not open oven door for 3 hours. About 30 to 40 minutes before serving time, turn oven to 375 degrees and reheat the roast. Important: Do not remove roast or re-open the oven door from time roast is put in until ready to serve.
