Ask your butcher to prepare this cut for you. It is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.


  • prime rib roast (allow 250g per person)
  • 2 Tbsps Worcestershire sauce
  • 11⁄4 Tbsps salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1⁄2 tsp white pepper
  • 11⁄2 tsps garlic powder
  • 11⁄2 tsp crushed thyme


Step 1

Grind some freshly ground black pepper over the meat and let the prime rib roast stand at room temperature for about an hour.

Step 2

Mix the salt, pepper, white pepper, garlic powder and crushed thyme together in a small bowl. Poke holes in the roast at 1 inches intervals with a fork.

Step 3

Rub top and sides of roast with the Worcestershire sauce. Rub the powdered seasonings all over the top and sides of roast.

Step 4

Place fat side up in a firm baking tray. Don’t cover and don’t add water/liquid. Preheat oven to 260°C then turn down to 180°C when you put the roast in (this will sear the outside and keep in the flavours).

Step 5

The actual roasting time will depend on the size roast that you have.

Step 6

Roast for 18-22 minutes per 500g for medium rare. Let it stand 30-40 minutes until internal temperature reaches 140°C before cutting. A general guide would be: 140°C is rare, 150°C is medium, 170°C is well done.

Step 7

Serve with gravy, roast potatoes and a selection of seasonal vegetables.
