Whether you’re having an at-home date night, or just want something fancy for dinner, our friends at Cooking Professionally have got you covered with this Restaurant-Style Prime Rib recipe.


• 1 (14-pound) roast-ready prime rib roast, ribs cut off and tied to roast 

• 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 

• 2 teaspoons ground black pepper 

• 2 teaspoons salt 

• 2 teaspoons paprika 

• 1 teaspoon onion powder 

• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

• 1/4 teaspoon celery seed


Step 1

Let the meat sit on the countertop and come to room temperature, for about 3 hours, depending on the size of the meat.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 3

Place aluminum foil in the bottom of a roasting pan.

Step 4

Place the roast in the roasting pan and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 5

Using a sifter, combine the flour, pepper, salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and celery seed into a small mixing bowl.

Step 6

Coat the roast with the flour/spice mixture.

Step 7

Place the roast in the oven and roast to your desired doneness, about 4 hours 30 minutes. The general rule of thumb is 20 minutes per pound of meat. Use a meat thermometer to determine your level of doneness. A medium-rare roast will be 130 degrees-140 degrees F in the center, keeping in mind that the roast will continue to come up a few degrees after being removed from the oven.

Step 8

Remove the roast from the oven and cover with aluminum foil. Allow it to rest for up to an hour before slicing and serving.
