About the Recipe

A Perfect Prime Rib Roast is the crowd-pleasing choice of the holidays or special celebration dinners. Enjoy the Perfect Prime Rib Roast bone-in or boneless, along with the juicy flavors that guests will find irresistible!


  • House of Meats Boneless or EZ Carve Prime Rib Roast (ask your House of Meats Butcher to season your roast with our Premium Prime Rib Seasoning!)

  • House of Meats Au Jus

    • One 14 oz. Container Per 5 lbs of Prime

  • House of Meats Horseradish Sauce, suggested one 8 oz. Container per 5 pounds of meat.

  • Foil, for tenting the roast while resting.

  • High-Quality Cooking Thermometer


Step 1:

Preheat your oven to 450°F.

If you seasoned your Prime Rib Roast at one of our House of Meats locations, move on to the next step!

If you did not have your House of Meats Butcher season your Prime Rib Roast at the time of purchase, season heavily with salt, pepper, and garlic.


Step 2:

Place seasoned roast uncovered in a roasting pan and insert your meat thermometer in the center of the roast not touching bone. We recommend the use of a good quality meat thermometer to ensure the perfect prime rib!


Step 3:

Bake for 45 minutes at 450°F, then reduce heat to 300°F and roast for an additional 8 minutes per pound for roasts under 6 pounds or 5 minutes per pound for roasts over 6 pounds. When the meat thermometer reaches your desired degree, remove your roast from the oven, tent with foil, and let rest for 20 minutes.

  • Medium Rare - 125°F

  • Medium - 135°F

  • Medium Well - 140°F

  • Well Done - Not an Option


Step 4:

While your roast is resting, in a saucepan on the stove bring your House of Meats Au Jus (you may add the drippings from the roast) to a boil and then reduce to simmer.


Step 5:

After 20 minutes of resting time, cut strings and remove extra fat tied on for flavor and moisture by your House of Meats butcher. Slice and serve The Perfect Prime Rib Roast with House of Meats AuJus and enjoy!


If a serving is too rare for one of your guests simply hold their piece of Prime Rib in your simmering Au Jus for the count of 10. This will cook the meat and remove the rareness while the meat will remain moist and tender. They will think you are a culinary genius!
