Roasted Prime Rib of Beef with Au jus

Beef Seasoning
1/4 cup of Kosher salt
1/4 cup BBQ spice
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon ground French roast coffee
1/2 teaspoon leaf thyme
Mix all ingredients thoroughly with whisk or fingers
Prime Rib
1/4 cup of olive oil

1 whole prime rib Jay’s note: Sam’s Club sells a de-
cent whole Angus Prime Rib. If you have any friends

in the restaurant business, have them order you a
CAB, (Certified Angus Beef) Prime Rib.
Meat thermometer
 Preheat oven to 500° (not conventional)
 Take roast out of plastic and place on a rack and
then on a sheet tray or roasting pan
 Coat entire roast with olive oil including bottom
and sides
 Coat entire oiled roast with above prepared

seasoning. You may or may need all of the sea-
soning and it be saved for later use.

 Place roast in preheated oven on the center
rack. Set timer for 22 minutes. After the timer
goes off, turn oven temperature down to 300°. A
good general rule for cooking time is 15 minutes
per pound. The thermometer comes into play at
this point. Jay’s note: Taylor is a good brand and
only about $4.00. I use the following process to
prepare the thermometer: bring a small pot of

water to a slow boil. Insert the point of thermome-
ter into the water until it reads 150°. Remove and

quickly insert into the center of the roast.
 When the thermometer reads 140° the roast will
be a perfect medium-rare.
 Remove from oven and place on a separate
sheet tray. Make sure that you let the roast rest
for at least forty five minutes before slicing. If it’s
too hot, all the juices will run out and beef will
appear well done. Now on to the Au jus

Au jus

Roasted Prime Rib of Beef Drippings
6 cups of ice
salt and pepper if needed
 Place the ice into the drippings
 The ice will solidify the fat leaving only the jus
 Discard the ice and fat
 Pour jus into a saucepan. Simmer over a low
 Taste and season if needed
 Place sliced prime rib on plate and top with 2
ounces of au jus
