Perfect Rib Roast Recipe: A Head Chef Shares His Recipe for a Succulent Ribeye Roast

Jeff Hemmig, former head chef at 85 Main in Putnam, Connecticut, gave me his secret for a succulent rib roast. Shhh! I’m passing this juicy, delicious rib roast recipe along to you!

A rib roast is also known as prime rib. According to MasterClass, "both rib roast and prime are primal cuts of beef; however, prime rib recipes call for the cut to remain whole, whereas a butcher typically divides a rib roast into individual ribeye steaks. The rib roast is generally a boneless cut of meat, while prime rib comes with the bone still in it."

This tender cut of beef is easy to make at home. All you'll need for this rib roast recipe is a ribeye roast on the bone, onion, carrots, celery, red wine, beef stock, garlic, fresh rosemary, olive oil, salt and black pepper. This ribeye roast is fancy enough for a dinner party, but easy enough to make for a special weeknight dinner. Serve this beef recipe with your favorite side dishes. Here are some steakhouse sides dishes that would be delicious served alongside the roast:

Recipe Notes

  • The meat will continue to cook and rise in temperature after it's removed from the oven.
  • Resting time is important so all the juices stay in the meat when sliced. 

Here's how you make it:

  1. Put the vegetables on the bottom of a roasting pan. Add the red wine and beef stock.
  2. Smear garlic and drizzle olive oil over roast. Sprinkle with rosemary, kosher salt and black pepper. Put meat on top of vegetables, rib side down.
  3. Cook in a preheated 450-degree F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees. For rare cook 18 minutes per pound; medium-rare cook 20 minutes per pound; and medium cook 22 minutes per pound. Use a thermometer and pull the meat out at 125 degrees F for rare and 135 degrees for medium. It’ll continue to cook outside the oven. 
  4. Strain the jus and skim the fat off. Let the meat rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
