Cuisipro Slow Roasted Prime Rib



6-12 lbs standing rib roast

Kosher salt, to taste 

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

Au jus, for serving 


Au Jus

4 tablespoons beef drippings

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

¼ cup red wine

2 cups beef broth divided

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

salt & pepper to taste


Method: Roast

  1. Trim extra fat off the prime rib, and then tie it with butcher twine.
  2. The day before roasting the prime rib, season it liberally on all sides with salt and pepper. Place the roast on a heavy baking sheet with the fat cap side up and refrigerate, uncovered, overnight (or up to 24 hours).
  3. Remove the prime rib from the refrigerator and let it stand at room temperature for 2 hours before roasting.
  4. Preheat the oven to 250°F with the rack in the lower third of the oven. Place prime rib on a Cuisipro Roasting Rack in a roasting pan with the fat-cap side up.
  5. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat reads 120-125°F for rare, 128-130°F for medium-rare, or 132-135°F for medium and medium-well. This will take 3-4 hours.
  6. Remove the prime rib from the oven, tent it with foil, and let rest for 30 minutes.
  7. Increase oven temperature to 500°F. Uncover the roast and brush it with soft butter. Roast it in the oven for 10 minutes until the exterior is brown with a crisp crust.
  8. Carve the prime rib and serve with au jus on the side.
