So You Want to Cook a Prime Rib?

Here at Oliver’s Market we are passionate about meat. Especially great cuts shared around a holiday table of family. Here we have instructions on how to cook your Oliver’s Choice 100% Angus Standing Rib Roast! These instructions will help you get your prime rib cooked to perfection – it will be the star of your dinner table!

Oliver’s is proud to offer true Prime Standing Rib Roasts and Choice Standing Rib Roasts. Our roasts come with the bone-in, but we can cut the bone off and tie it back on, so you still get the flavor but have an easier time carving the roast. Traditionally rib roasts are roasted in the oven to medium rare and sliced in thick steak cuts. There are many ways to accomplish this, but here is our favorite method.

  • Serves: 6 servings
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 hours


  • 1 5lb Oliver's Choice 100% Angus Standing Rib Roasts
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Coarse black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Au Jus (optional)


  1. Allow roast to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 375*F. Combine the salt, pepper and garlic powder in a small bow. Place the roast in a rack in a roasting pan so the fatty side is up and the rib side is on the bottom. Season the meat liberally with the spice mix.

  3. Roast for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Turn the oven off and leave the roast inside. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. Leave it in there for 3 hours. 30 to 40 minutes before serving, turn the oven back on at 375*F to reheat the roast. The internal temperature should be between 135*F and 145*F. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before carving into servings.

  4. Slice the meat as desired and serve with your Aus Jus.
