Foolproof Standing Prime Rib Roast (Paula Deen)

Auto Draft

Auto Draft


  • 1 (5 lb) standing rib roast
  • Paula Deen House Seasoning (use 1 T)
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon garlic powder


  1. Allow roast to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  3. Rub roast with House Seasoning; place roast on a rack in the pan with the rib side down and the fatty side up.
  4. Roast for 1 hour. Turn off oven. Leave roast in oven but do not open oven door for 2-3 hours. (I give a range because I have had roasts perfect to a bit over-cooked. I would check temperature after 2 hours--don't go over 125°F in final cooking cycle because it will rise another 10 degrees or so during resting phase).
  5. About 30 to 40 minutes before serving time, turn oven to 375°F 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.
  6. Cover with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
  7. Note: Paula Dean learned from a chef a trick for satisfying everyone with prime rib. Cook it rare. If anyone wants it done medium, dip their slice in a pot of simmering au jus for 1 minute.

  1. Paul kenny uses an external read thermometer and targets 120 degrees as I reheat it for the perfect medium rare
