Steakhouse Prime Rib Recipe (You Won't Believe the Secret Ingredient) by Margaret Steck
Preparing a mouth-watering prime rib comes down to one basic ingredient: rock salt. Yes, salt imparts so much flavor into your holiday prime rib. And it's really easy to do!
Here's my prime rib recipe that serves six to eight people. The leftovers make a mean prime rib sandwich! (Don't forget the horseradish sauce.)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes per pound
Total Time: 1 1/2 hours (approximately)
Servings: 6 to 8
- 1 (4-rib) standing rib roast
- seasoned salt, for the rib roast
- 1 bag (5 pounds) rock salt (also known as ice cream salt)
Here's how to make it:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Pour the rock salt on the bottom of a heavy roasting pan and place a wire rack on top. Sprinkle the fatty cap of the standing rib roast with season salt and place on top of the wire rack (fatty side up). Make sure none of the rock salt is touching the roast.
- Cooking time is approximately 20 minutes per pound. Insert a meat thermometer into the roast, careful not to touch bone. The thermometer should read 130 degrees F for rare or 140 degrees F for medium rare.
- Once the roast is cooked, take it out of the oven and let stand for 20 minutes before carving.

I "cheffed" for a mere 7 years and I'm embarrassed to admit that it took me that long to figure out that the pay scale was ludicrous which led me to "front of the house" MoMoney, MoHappy😁
Sorry little one JoJo that it took you 15 years to realize that equation.
