Four Steps to a Perfect Rib Roast
Rib roasts are one of the most tender cuts available and all 2J’s beef rib roasts are USDA Choice Certified Angus Beef. We cut, season, and tie all roasts to order.
These roasts are easy to prepare by following a few simple steps. Then once the roast is in the oven it requires little attention.
Rib roasts may be cooked to any doneness, but for optimum flavor and tenderness, cook medium-rare to medium.
What You Need:
Beef Rib Roast
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Place roast,
rib side down, in an open roasting pan. The
ribs will form the rack that keeps the meat
above the drippings. If using a boneless roast
place fat side up on a roasting rack in an open
roasting pan. Do not add water or cover.
Insert ovenproof meat thermometer
so tip is centered in the thickest part of beef
not resting in fat or touching bone.
Place roast in oven and roast until
the meat thermometer registers 10˚F below
desired doneness. For medium-rare 125˚F to
130˚F, or for medium 140˚F to 145˚F.
Remove roast from oven and loosely tent with foil, then let stand 15-20 minutes before carving. During the standing time the roast will continue to raise 5˚F to 10˚F in temperature to reach desired doneness and roast will be easier to carve.
Alternate Cooking Method:
If you don’t have a cooking thermometer you can cook the roast at 350˚F for approximately 20 minutes per pound.
How Much Do You Need?
You can figure roughly 1 pound per adult. This
will give you about an 8 oz to 10 oz serving.
