We had our family Christmas party and just like the last 3 years, Christopher and I have made a Rib Roast part of our tradition!

This roast cooked exactly this way always turns out perfect!


  • 5-6 lb rib roast
  • 1/2 cup Sea salt
  • 1/4 cup crushed Tri color peppercorn
  • 2 TBSP Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp Thyme


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2

Let roast come to room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Mix the spices and rub well all over the roast.

Step 4

Bake for 1 hour and then turn the oven off.

Step 5

Do not open the oven door for 3 hours... At all...for any reason...

Step 6

After that time passes, turn oven on again at 375 degrees and let the roast come back up to temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 7

Remove from oven and let rest before slicing.

Step 8


Lets get started!

We place the roast, uncovered,on a rack in a pan

overnight in the refrigerator..

The next day, let the roast sit out and come to room temperature 30 minutes while you mix up the spices…

In a bowl, combine the spices and rub them

all over the roast thoroughly…

If you need more spices to cover it well, then duplicate the mixture…

Preheat oven to 375 degrees…

Cook roast 1 hour…turn off oven and DO NOT OPEN…

even for a peek…for 3 hours!

Trust me…things… good ¬†things…amazing things …

are happening in there!!

After the 3 nail biting hours are up, turn the oven back to 375 degrees and bring the roast back up to temperature…about 30 minutes…

When you take it out… It will look incredible like this!!


And this!




And the chef is happy like this!
