Standing Rib Roast Recipe

1 (7- to 8-pound) standing rib roast

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

Two hours before roasting, remove the meat from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 500 F. Place the oven rack on the second-lowest position.

Place the roast in a pan large enough to hold it comfortably, bones side down, and generously coat the top with salt and pepper. Roast the meat for 45 minutes. Reduce temperature to 325 F. and roast for another 30 minutes. Increase the temperature to 450 F. and roast for another 15 to 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meat is 125 F. (be sure the thermometer is exactly in the center of the roast).

Remove roast from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and allow the meat to rest for 20 minutes. Carve and serve with sauce.

Serves 8.
