Garlic & Herb Prime Rib Roast

An exquisite prime rib roast infused with the flavors of fresh herbs and pungent garlic that will elevate your holiday table and delight your guests with its rich aroma and succulent taste.

  • Total Time: 3 hours 40 minutes
  • Yield: 10 servings 1x


Units Scale

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 your oven to a high temperature of 500 degrees Fahrenheit to start the cooking process.
Use this time to prepare your prime rib by trimming off any excess fat, ensuring even cooking and a perfect crust.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine your freshly minced herbs with the aromatic garlic, salt, and pepper to create the rub.
Generously coat the prime rib with this herb-garlic mixture, massaging it into the meat to thoroughly infuse the flavors.
Drizzle olive oil over the herb-rubbed roast, adding a layer of fat that will help create a magnificent crust.
Place your seasoned prime rib on a v-rack, which should be set in a roasting pan to catch drippings and ensure even roasting.
Introduce the prime rib to the preheated oven, roasting it uncovered for a quick burst of 20 minutes at 500 degrees to develop a rich, golden crust.
Without opening the oven, reduce the heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and let the roast continue to cook undisturbed, following the approximate guide of 15-18 minutes per pound.
Calculate the cooking time for your specific size of the prime rib roast, which should be approximately 2 1/2 hours for a 10 lb roast.
Once the roast has reached your desired level of doneness, remove it from the oven and embrace the importance of resting the meat, allowing it to sit untouched for 20-30 minutes.
Carve the roast with confidence and precision, serving slices of this masterpiece to your eagerly awaiting guests.


Remember to let the prime rib roast come to room temperature before beginning your prep to ensure even cooking.
Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the roast to achieve your preferred level of doneness.
Keep in mind that the temperature of the meat will continue to rise slightly during the resting period.
