A broiled prime rib is a delicious and tender meat dish, perfect for a special occasion or an everyday dinner. You can use a prime rib roast that comes with or without the bone. Because prime rib is such a flavorful meat, you don't need to add very many spices. A little salt, pepper and garlic is perfect to enhance the juiciness of the prime rib. You can also broil the prime rib to fit the taste you prefer, such as rare, medium or well done.


Step 1

Mix the salt, pepper and garlic together and rub into the meat. Be sure to rub the seasonings into all sides of the meat.
