Tips for Cooking Tender and Juicy Prime Rib
- Pick a quality cut – Look for well-marbled meat with a thick cap of fat on top. This fat will melt as it cooks and will flavor the meat.
- Start it at room temperature – To ensure you get cooking, take your prime rib out of the fridge at least 2–3 hours before cooking.
- Season well – Prime rib is a thick cut of meat, so you’ll want to season it well with salt and pepper. You can also add minced garlic, fresh herbs, or your favorite seasonings.
- Follow the recipe instructions – There are several great ways to cook prime rib. Make sure you follow the suggested cooking time based on the weight.
- Check the temperature – Invest in an instant-read meat thermometer so you’ll know the exact internal temperature of the center of the roast. For medium-rare prime rib, aim for an internal temperature of 130–135 degrees f.
- Rest before carving – Give the roast time to rest for at least 15-20 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat
- Storing leftovers – If you have leftover prime rib, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days. You can also wrap it well in plastic wrap, then a layer of foil, and freeze for up to a couple of months.
