1 1-2 rib roast of beef, approximately 8 to 10 pounds
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 TBSP kosher salt
1 TBSP freshly ground black pepper
2 TBSP Milford Spice Company’s Prime Rib
Remove the roast from the refrigerator 2 or 3 hours before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Rub butter on the cut ends of the roast.
Combine flour, salt, pepper, and Milford Spice Company’s Prime Rib together in a small bowl, and then massage the mixture all over the meat.
Set the roast, rib side down, in a shallow roasting pan (the ribs act as a natural rack), and place in the oven. Roast for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, or until the roast is nicely darkened. Reduce the oven temp to 350 and continue to roast, basting every 15 or 20 minutes, until the roast reaches an internal temperature of 125 degrees (for medium-rare) on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the roast to a cutting board and let rest for 20 minutes before carving into either huge slabs or off the bone entirely and then thin slices.
