Salt Encrusted Prime Rib
SALT ENCRUSTED PRIME RIB
Fleming's Prime Steakhouse Recipe
1 (3 lb) box kosher salt (about 6 cups), divided
1 (6-8 lb) bone in beef rib roast
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 450. Line a shallow roasting pan with heavy duty foil. Place 3 cups salt on foil, spreading to form a 1/2 inch layer. Brush roast with Worcestershire sauce; sprinkle with pepper and garlic powder. Place roast on layer of salt; fat side up.
In a small bowl, mix water and remaining salt (mixture should be just moist enough to pack). Beginning at the base of the roast, press salt mixture onto the sides and top of roast. Roast 15 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 325. Roast 2 to 2 1/4 hours or until a thermometer reaches 145 for medium. (Temperature of roast will continue to rise about 15 degrees upon standing). Let stand 20 minutes. Remove and discard salt crust; brush away any remaining salt. Carve roast into slices.
