ROASTED PRIME RIBS of BEEF
Lawry's The Prime Rib Restaurant Recipe
1 (4 rib) standing rib roast
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1 (5 lb.) bag rock salt
Sprinkle fatty cap of roast with Lawry's Seasoned Salt. In a heavy roasting pan, spread rock salt evenly over bottom.; place wire roasting rack on top of salt. Place the roast on rack, fatty side up. Make sure no salt actually touches the beef. Insert meat thermometer in thickest part of meat, making sure it does not touch bone. Roast in preheated 350- degree oven until thermometer registers 130 degrees for rare, 140 for medium, or about 20 to 25 minutes per pound. Remove from oven and let stand 20 minutes before carving. Using a sharp knife, slice meat across the grain for serving. Discard rock salt. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
If desired, use an instant read thermometer to test internal temperature periodically; do not leave this type of thermometer in the roast.
