The Big Easy® Prime Rib Recipe
FOR THE ROAST
- 1 (5-pound) rib roast
FOR THE RUB
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
Most rib roasts come with a thick layer of fat on top. You can leave it on for more flavor or cut it down to a thinner layer.
Your rub and/or marinade should contain NO sugar. Sugar will cause your food to burn.
Power up The Big Easy® Oil-Less Turkey Fryer.
Hot TipThe Big Easy was designed to be powered ON (all the way to the left) and OFF (all the way to the right). All recipes for The Big Easy are based on operating the fryer at full power.
Combine salt and pepper in a small bowl. Season the roast on all sides with the rub.
Place beef roast in the roaster basket. Lower the basket into the cooking chamber. Insert a meat thermometer into the center of the meatiest part of the roast so that the dial is easy to read when the basket is in the cooker.
Hot TipTo minimize sticking, coat the wire frame of the cooking basket with oil before inserting roast.
Cook until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 110°F for rare or 115°F for medium-rare, about 1 to 1 ½ hours. Cook time varies based on weather conditions and the size of your roast.
Hot TipCover the fryer with the wire mesh lid during the first or last 15 minutes of the cook for crispy skin, using infrared heat reflected back into cooking chamber. If used throughout cook, this heat can burn food before it is fully cooked.
Lift the roaster basket out of the chamber and set it on a shallow sheet pan. When the basket is cool to the touch, remove your prime rib roast.
Place it on a platter or tray. Cover with aluminum foil and a kitchen towel, leaving the meat thermometer in place. Allow the roast to rest until it reaches 120-129°F for rare or 130-134°F for medium-rare, about 20 minutes.
Hot TipThe internal temperature continues to cook the roast, raising it to the target temperature. If someone insists on medium-well or well-done, grill their slices on the grill at 500°F to an internal temperature of 160-170°F after the roast is finished cookin
Serve with flavorful sides like grilled veggies and Hasselback potatoes.
