Anne’s Foolproof Standing Rib Roast

What you will need-

1 (5-pound) standing rib roast

Salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste

How to make-
This is very simple to make. Take your roast out and let it stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour. The Sister’s like their meat medium rare. So this recipe is for medium rare. if you like your meat cooked more just cook a little longer. Heat your oven to 375 degrees. Rub the roast with the seasonings. Don’t be stingy with the seasoning. You want to season it up good. Give your meat a good message and make sure that all of the meat is seasoned. Place your roast on a rack in the pan with the rib side down and the fatty side up. Roast for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and leave the roast in the oven. Do not open the oven door for 3 hours. Don’t even take a quick look. you want to keep the door shut so all of the heat stays in the oven. About 30 to 40 minutes before serving time, turn the 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. Remove the roast from the oven once the internal temperature is at 135-140. Let the meat rest for about 15 minutes. It will continue to cook. You will be tempted to cut you a piece because it is going to smell and look so darn good, but don’t. If you cut before the meat has rested you will loose all of the juices and the meat will be dry. You don’t want it to be dry.
