The Big Easy® Prime Rib Recipe

5.0

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.

Ingredients

5
lb. rib roast
1
Tbsp sea salt
1
Tbsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1

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

2

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

3

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.
4

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.

5

The resting time is approximately 20 minutes before slicing.

    Make sure the meat is room temp before cooking or it takes a very long time to cook. Made this several times, it is awesome!

      According to the USDA , it's best to grill steak to a minimum of 145 °F (62.8 °C), followed by a rest period of 3 minutes.

      This product doesn't have specific high, medium and low settings; monitoring according to temperature produces the best results.

    Minutes per pound or do you just go by temp? 15 mins/pound??

      We prefer to go by internal temperature, which usually takes about 15-minutes-per-pound.

    I’m doing a 10 lb. prime rib in my Big Easy. Recipes I’ve seen say to place it rib side down, but mine won’t fit that way. Is it ok to place the prime rib on end in the basket? Also, should I use the smaller basket to raise up the meat inside the cooker?

      Hi, if you need to flip the prime rib around to fit in the basket you can do so. If the prime rib fits in the smaller basket without compromising the cooking area with The Big Easy, you can do so as well.
