This recipe for Garlic and Rosemary Crusted Prime Rib is extremely flavorful and juicy! Coated in a seasoning base of kosher salted, coarse pepper, garlic, and rosemary that makes for a wonderful Prime Rib Recipe
Okay, I have been wanting to make Prime Rib for EVER! I have always been intimidated by making it for a few reasons.
- Because of how expensive it is and I was concerned I’d mess it up.
- I would spend a ton of money on one piece of meat and it would come out dry.
- I wouldn’t know what the hell to do!
I guess I kind of repeated myself a bit, but you get the point. I typically get intimidated by making something that I consider “fancy” and expensive for the first time. Sometimes, it takes me a while to build up the nerve, but when I do and decide to face my fear in the kitchen, MAGIC happens! In this case, magic and intelligence happened with the use of my new friend, Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™.

Tips for making the best Prime Rib
If you are a beginner like I was when I made this Prime Rib, not to worry my dear because it really isn’t all that bad. The one thing you need to remember to do is to give a lot of seasoning, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature for the best outcome, and use those pan drippings because they make delicious gravy. Here are some additional tips when making this recipe:
- Season the Prime Rib overnight. This is a must! Please do not think you are going to wake up the morning of to make this recipe and it is going to come awesome. It may come out okay, but it is going to be best if you season the rib overnight covered in kosher salt, coarse black pepper, garlic, and finely chopped rosemary.
- Do not through those pan drippings from the roasting pan away because that is going to be the base of your gravy. Add a little flour, a little red wine or beef stock, and some other flavors of love, the gravy made from the fat of the beef rib roast is going to taste great over a bed of mashed potatoes.
- Once the rib has rested (please let it rest) for about 30 minutes, make a simple garlic herb butter to cover the prime rib to add even more flavor! You simply take a stick of room temperature butter, add about a tablespoon of minced garlic and a half tablespoon of finely chopped rosemary and stir until it all becomes one. Take dollops of the butter and cover them with the prime rib. Heavenly!
How to cook Prime Rib without Auto IQ Cooker
I bet some of you are like, “Nicole, this is all good, but I don’t have the Ninja® Kitchen Auto IQ System. How can I make your recipe without it?” I am glad you asked and I have you covered.
- To make the Prime Rib without the cooking system, is pretty much the same. You’re going to follow my instructions on seasoning and covering in plastic wrap overnight, or at least, 4 hours.
- Allow sitting at room temperature uncovered for about an hour.
- Preheat your oven to 500 degrees. I know that seems high but that is what is going to give the beef the nice crust on the outside. After you roast the rib for 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 325 F degrees and cook for 13-15 minutes per pound for medium-rare slices of prime rib. If you want something more on the rare side, then roast for 11-12 minutes.
- Allow resting before cutting. Use a sharp knife to cut the rub into slices and serve!
