Bone-In Prime Rib
6-7 lb bone in rib roast (3 bones)
Black Pepper

Preheat the oven to convection roast to 450°F.
Allow the prime rib roast to sit at room temperature for 1 hour, pat dry with paper towels and generously season beef with salt and pepper.
Set prime rib fat side up on a rack elevated above a baking or roasting pan.
Cook uncovered for 20 minutes.
Reduce heat to 325°F and cook uncovered 1.5 – 2 hours until the internal temperature is 125°F as the internal beef temperature will rise for another 5 – 10 minutes after removing it from the oven.
Rest 10 – 15 minutes before slicing.
Serve with au jus & horseradish sour cream sauce.

Boneless Prime Rib Recipe
Prepare as above except you want to put the boneless roast in your oven for 15 minutes at 500°. Then, set your oven to 300° and cook your meat for 10-12 minutes per pound for a rare roast, 13-14 minutes per pound for medium rare, or 14-15 minutes per pound for medium well.

You’ll need to use a meat thermometer to ensure that your roast reaches the correct internal temperature; 120° for rare, 130° for medium rare, 140° for medium, or 150° for medium well. Don’t open the oven during cooking!
