The Big Easy® Prime Rib Recipe

Often the stuff of celebrations or fancy buffets, prime rib – also known as a standing rib roast – is prized for its tender and juicy flavor profile. But that “prime” cut often comes with a “prime” price – which is why it’s important to get it right the first time, every time.

Before You Buy: Choosing the Right Cut

lb. rib roast
Tbsp sea salt
Tbsp freshly ground black pepper

Place beef roast in cooking basket -  insert a reliable oven proof meat thermometer into the center of the meatiest part of roast.


Place basket in The Big Easy cooking chamber and turn on unit.


Cook to an internal temp of 135F degrees for Rare & 145F degrees for Medium-Rare.

Hot Tip: To check temp, lift from time-to-time and use an instant read thermometer inserted into the roast so that it avoids fat and bone to check for doneness and even roasting.

When internal temp is approximately 5-10 degrees below the target you desire, remove and place on plate or tray, cover with aluminum foil and a kitchen towel - allow to rest about 20 minutes while the internal temperature continues cooking the roast to the target temp.


The resting time is approximately 20 minutes before slicing.
