Garlic & Herb Prime Rib Roast

This is my brother's original recipe and the result is an amazing, flavorful roast. If you love garlic, you'll love the flavor and aroma while this bakes up in your oven. Thanks goes to my brother John for preparing his specialty prime rib roast for the holidays!

Garlic & Herb Prime Rib Roast
10 lb prime rib roast (bone in) - at room temperature
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, minced
2 tablespoons fresh oregano, minced
2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.

While the oven is preheating, prep your prime rib roast by trimming any extra fat off of it.

Combine the minced herbs, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Rub this mixture all over the rib roast. Drizzle the herb rubbed roast with the olive oil and place on a v-rack set in a roasting pan.

Bake the roast uncovered in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, decrease the heat to 375 and continue cooking the roast uncovered for 2 1/2 hours (if you have a 10 lb roast). Bake about 15-18 minutes per pound.

Remove roast from oven and allow it to rest at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before carving.
