"Made this prime rib roast for Christmas and it was terrific! I wanted it medium rare so took it out at just over 130degrees on my meat thermometer and it was perfect after sitting for 15min. Rave reviews from my family!"

"I bought a beautiful prime rib roast. Followed the directions to a t. Because prime rib is already so tender, this recipe makes the meat taste mushy. I might try this recipe on a tougher cut of meet. I also found the ketchup over pours any of the other flavours. I won't be using this recipe on a prime rib again. I feel terribly leaving a bad review, perhaps I did something wrong, but the flavours didn't do the meat justice."
