Roast Prime Rib

When I first prepared this roast for a family reunion, "scrumptious" was the word used most to describe it. This roast is an easy yet elegant entree that turns out moist and tender every time.—Wendell Obermeier, Charles City, Iowa

  • Makes
    10 servings


  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef ribeye roast (4 to 5 pounds), rolled and tied
  • 1 small onion, cut into thin slivers
  • 2 garlic cloves, cut into slivers
  • Fresh parsley sprigs


  • In a small bowl, combine the mustard, salt, paprika, allspice and pepper. Using a sharp knife, cut long deep slits in the top of the roast, approximately 1 in. apart. Stuff each slit with onion, garlic, parsley and a small amount of spice mixture. Rub remaining spice mixture on the outside of the roast.
  • Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
