Remove the Roast from the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before start cooking it, this allows the meat to warm up to room temperature which gives better cooking conditions when we start to roast the beef.
Season well with salt and pepper, remember that this is a big piece of beer, season liberally!
Prepare a ‘Trivet’ made from vegetables, roughly chop the veggies, you can leave the skin on; onions, carrots, celery, garlic, fresh herbs such as Thyme or Rosemary. Place the beef on top of the ‘Trivet’ and ensure that the roast does not directly touch the base of the roasting tin otherwise it will be burnt. The veggies will capture the juices from the beef and makes an excellent base for a gravy.
Place the beef in a pre-heated and very hot oven (220 °C and allow to brown for around 25 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 160°C and slow roast for approximately 3.5 hours for the whole piece and 1 and three quarter hours for the half piece.
It is better and more accurate to use a meat thermometer, you should remove the beef from the oven once the roast reaches a core temperature of 45 °C (if you do not have a meat thermometer you can use a metal skewer placed into the center of the beef for a few seconds then placed against your bottom lip, it should be registered as ‘warm’ not ‘hot’.
Remove from the oven and allow it to rest on a resting rack for at least 30 minutes. The roast will continue to cook as the juices inside settle, raising the internal temperature to 55 degrees for a perfect medium-rare prime rib.
While it is resting, make your gravy using the vegetables and meat juices from the roasting pan as a base.
To carve the roast, remove it from the bones by gently slicing down the back of the bones. Slice the prime rib roast nice and thick and serve with gravy and Christmas vegetables.
