Herbed Standing Rib Roast Recipe

We're a meat-and-potatoes family, so this roast is right up our alley. It really is the highlight of an elegant dinner for special guests. Leftovers are great for sandwiches, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 2-1/4 hours + standing YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons grated onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bone-in beef rib roast (6 to 7 pounds)
  • 2 large onions, cut into wedges
  • 2 large carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 celery ribs, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup red wine or beef broth
  • Assorted herbs and fruit, optional

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; rub over roast. Place onions, carrots and celery in a large roasting pan; place roast over vegetables.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, 2-1/4 to 3 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 3. Remove roast to a serving platter and keep warm; let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
  • 4. Meanwhile, for au jus, strain and discard vegetables. Pour drippings into a measuring cup; skim fat. Add wine to roasting pan, stirring to remove any browned bits. Stir in drippings; heat through. Serve with roast. Garnish platter with herbs and fruit if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
