How to Cook A Beef Rib Roast

Learn this simple recipe, and get a fabulous Rib Roast every time.

When I was shopping for our family Thanksgiving meal, I found this rib roast for just $6.99 a pound. The usual price is 14.99, so this $70.00 roast was only 32.99. I bought it, took it home and put it in the freezer.

A few days before I was ready to roast it, I put it in the refrigerator to thaw. One of the most important tips I have for getting a delicious, evenly cooked roast is to allow it some time, usually between 30 and 45 minutes, to sit on the counter and return to room temperature before putting it in the oven.

Here are the ingredients and directions.

1 Beef Rib Roast. This one is just about 5 pounds.

3 Tablespoons of butter at room temperature

Salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon of Onion Powder

Pre-Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the Roast in a roasting pan and pat with paper towels.

Salt and pepper the roast and sprinkle with the garlic and onion powders.

With a butter knife, spread the butter over the top and sides of the roast.

Put the beef in the oven and roast at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.

Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and roast until a thermometer inserted into the center of the roast reads 150 degrees for medium rare, about 20 minutes per pound of total roasting time.

Place the beef on a cutting board, and allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving.

I slice the ribs off of the bottom of the roast and set them aside before carving.

For a delicious ketogenic meal, I like to serve this dish with roasted broccoli, and simple egg and cheese quiche cups. My sugar free diet program is available at Sugar Freedom.com
