  • Preheat oven to 450 and coat a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray
  • Combine all dry ingredients and mix then slowly add water into the bowl until it becomes a paste consistency
  • Pat your prime rib roast as dry as possible with a paper towel 
  • Place prime rib bone side down in the baking dish
  • Gently apply your salt mixture to the prime rib coating the entire face up side about ¼ of an inch thick 
  • Place the seasoned prime rib in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 325 degrees
  • Allow the prime rib to roast until a meat thermometer reads 135 degrees (medium rare) 
    • Cook time is around 2 hours depending on the size of the prime rib roast 
  • Remove the roast from the oven and allow it to rest under tin foil for 10- 15 minutes 
  • Lastly, remove the hardened salt crust altogether from the roast before serving, and ENJOY 


Secret Tip: 

For extra flavor add a touch of additional seasoning to the prime rib once it's been patted dry, try a course steak seasoning like Montreal, but remember you are adding a TON of salt to this meat so be sure to avoid rubs containing high volumes of salt.
