How to Cook Prime Rib With Rock Salt


Prime rib and ribeye steaks come from beef cut from a standing rib roast. The meat is cut from the rib section comprising of ribs six through twelve. The USDA does not require that prime rib be cut from prime grade beef. The technical name, per URMIS (Uniform Retail Meat Industry Standards), is Beef Rib Roast. In the United Kingdom a common side dish for prime rib is Yorkshire pudding. Cooking prime rib with rock salt creates a very hard outer shell trapping the juices inside.

Things You'll Need

  • Spread a layer of rock salt on the bottom of the roasting pan.

  • Cook uncovered for twelve minutes per pound.
