Reviews forBeef Rib Roast
"Cooked this so many times now I cannot even count! The garlic and bacon give this such a great flavor. Usually cook a 4.5 - 5# piece of meat. This has been our Christmas and New Years Eve dinner (and many in-between) for years now.Passed this recipe on to many friends and family members and they all loved it as well.I use an acu-rite thermometer that tells the internal meat temp while in the oven and turns out perfect each and every time! I have found bringing the meat out an hour or so before cooking to help bring to room temp first helps with more accurate cooking time if you do not have the digital thermometer to monitor.I love that there is no turning the up heat...then turn down heat like many other recipes for prime rib. Killed a few expensive pieces a meat that way."
