I am cooking Prime Ribs of Beef for my in-laws at Christmas and don’t have a clue. Can you give me directions on how to prepare?

Dear Kazoo Kook,
Prime Rib is easy. Buy 10-16 oz per person for bone on, 8-10 oz for boneless. Season Roast with Salt, Pepper, Bam, Garlic, Onion powder,or Canadian Steak Seasoning. Make sure you rub spices on all four sides. I also like to take 2 cloves of garlic, peel, slice and then insert slices into fat back of roast by making a small incision and pressing garlic slice through fat and into the meat.
Roast at 300-325 degrees “Standing ” on the ribs, fat side up. You can add a mirepoix (diced carrots, onions and celery) to the bottom of the roasting pan. This will add to the meat juices and make a wonderful stock for your au jus or gravy.
Rare : 18 minutes per pound, Medium: 22 minutes, Well done: 25 minutes.
USE a meat thermometer !!!! Rare 125 MedRare 140 Med 160 WDone 170
I use 20 minutes for Med Rare so a #5 roast would take 100 minutes. Roast an hour and a half then let stand for 15 minutes before slicing (meat is still cooking up to +10 degrees of temp while it rests!!!)
Enjoy the Holidays and devour your Beef !
