- Let your roast come to room temperature. Set it out about an hour ahead so the temperature is the same inside and out. This will help it cook evenly.
- Start at a high heat. What makes rib roast so delicious is its deeply browned crust. Just 20 minutes at 450°F will do the trick.
- Roast at a low heat. To keep that buttery tender texture, roast at 325°F for about 2 hours.
- Take the temperature. You don’t want well-done here; aim for medium-rare (120°F) or medium (130°F).
- Let it rest. This ensures the meat will be juicy and makes it much easier to slice.
