  • 3 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 3 teaspoons paprika
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 bone-in beef rib roast (6 to 7 pounds)
  • 2 cups beef stock


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a small bowl, mix the first 5 ingredients. Place roast in a roasting pan, fat side up; rub with seasoning mixture.
  2. Roast 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Remove roast from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 15 minutes before carving.
  3. Meanwhile, pour drippings and loosened browned bits from roasting pan into a small saucepan. Skim fat. Add beef stock to drippings; bring to a boil. Serve with roast.
Test Kitchen Tips
  • To separate the fat from the drippings with ease, try this tool from OXO ($14).
  • Don't rush the resting time. Carving the meat too early can cause the roast to lose its juiciness. The meat will still be plenty warm for serving, but if you're worried, tent with foil.
