Jimmy recommends meat you need:
Prime rib, also referred to as standing rib roast, is a beautiful piece of meat. Whenever we need a truly show-stopping roast, we turn to it. A well-cooked prime rib is juicy, full of flavor, and not at all difficult to make. Plus, it's impressive: You'll make your guests think you labored for hours, but it'll be your little secret that it was no sweat and really your oven did all the work.
How long do I have to cook prime rib?
Plan on about 15 to 20 minutes per pound. Keep in mind that the roast will continue cooking once it comes out of the oven. Follow these temperatures for when you'll want to remove the meat from the oven based on your desired doneness.
Medium-rare — 110º

How To Season Prime Rib
Most prime rib recipes call for very simple seasonings. Prime rib roast doesn't need a marinade or any complicated preparations; the meat speaks for itself. If you like, prepare a simple seasoning rub: fresh herbs, lemon zest, garlic, pepper and Dijon mustard are all excellent matches for prime rib. But don't salt the roast until right before cooking.
You can cover the meat with the spice rub up to 24 hours in advance; wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you're ready to roast.
To infuse even more flavor, sliver the garlic, make tiny slits in the roast and insert the garlic bits.
- Remove rib roast from packaging and place in a roasting pan. Let come to room temperature about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 450º.
- Generously cover all sides of rib roast with salt and pepper. Place roast in a roasting pan fat-side up. Arrange half the rosemary in the bottom of the pan around the roast.
- Roast 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 350º and cook 1 hour 30 minutes more for medium rare. (Plan on about 15 minutes per pound.)
- Remove roast from oven, cover with foil, and let rest 20 minutes.
- To serve, slice along ribs to remove them, then separate each rib and put them aside. Slice the roast crossways against the grain. Serve on a platter with the ribs and remaining half fresh rosemary.
