Creekstone All-Natural Prime Rib RoastFood Network Paula Deen Foolproof Rib Roast


  • One 7-pound prime rib bone-in roast, tied
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 10 large sage sprigs
  • 10 large thyme sprigs
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 4 shallots, peeled and halved
  • ½ head garlic, cloves crushed, plus 2 cloves thinly sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 and ½ tablespoons freshly cracked black peppercorns
  • ½ cup dry red wine (we suggest Pessoa da Vinha 2010 – good for cooking and drinking!)
  • 2 and ½ cups beef stock or low-sodium broth
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Set the meat in a large roasting pan, fat side up. Season the meat generously with salt and pepper. Around the roast, scatter 10 sprigs each of sage and thyme, 6 of the bay leaves, the shallots and the crushed garlic cloves. Pour in 1 cup of the water and roast for 45 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 275°. Roast the meat for about 2 hours and 15 minutes longer, adding the remaining 1 cup of water to the pan as the juices evaporate. The roast is done when an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 135°.
  2. Transfer the roast to a large carving board. Pour the fat in the roasting pan into a large heatproof bowl, stopping when you reach the syrupy pan juices at the bottom. Pour the pan juices into a small bowl and discard the vegetables and herbs.
  3. Set the pan over 2 burners and add 2 tablespoons of the reserved fat. Add the onion, peppercorns and the sliced garlic, remaining 2 bay leaves and 10 sprigs each of sage and thyme. Cook over moderate heat until the onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Add the wine and cook, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom and sides of the pan. Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the beef stock and pan juices and cook over moderate heat until slightly reduced, about 15 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with 2 tablespoons of the reserved fat. Whisk the paste into the saucepan and simmer the gravy until thickened, about 5 minutes. Strain the gravy through a fine sieve and keep warm until ready to serve.
  5. Cut the bones off the roast and slice the meat 1/2 inch thick. Cut in between the bones and serve them on the side. Pass the gravy at the table.

Serve your prime rib roast with:

Pessoa da Vinha 2010, sautéed garlic spinach and roasted rosemary potatoes.
