Cook the Perfect Prime Rib

It’s easier than you might think to cook the perfect prime rib and wow your family at your holiday table. We’ve got an instructional video and some tips below to help you succeed.

Buying prime rib

Prime rib is actually a cooking method, not a cut of meat. The proper name is standing ribeye roast. However, if you head to our stores and ask for prime rib, our butchers will know what you mean. Plus, we’ve got great prices on standing ribeye roast to help you save this season.

Not sure how much you need? Plan for one rib for every two people. When in doubt, ask our butchers.

Cooking prime rib

A meat thermometer is critical to prime rib perfection. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the roast, careful not to touch the bone. Meat continues to cook while resting, so remove the roast 5 to 10 degrees shy of your desired internal temperature.

Let it rest. After removing the roast from the oven, lightly tent with foil and let rest for 10 to 30 minutes before serving.

Watch our prime rib step-by-step video below and you’ll be a roastmaster in no time.

Shop prime rib and save.
