Prime Rib of Beef Recipe

This roast made its debut a few years back at Christmastime, when I made it instead of our traditional turkey dinner. Now we have a new tradition everyone looks forward to.—Tim Buckmaster, Millsboro, Delaware
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 2-1/2 hours + standing YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 1/3 cup each chopped onion, carrot and celery

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 bone-in beef rib roast (6 to 8 pounds)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth


  • 1. Combine onion, carrot and celery; place in a greased roasting pan. Combine salt, pepper and garlic powder; rub over the roast. Place fat side up over vegetables. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (medium-rare, 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand 10-15 minutes before carving.
