Some people think that grilling meat is easy, which is true if one knows the most important tips to get a delicious taste and crunch on the outside and a pink color on the inside of the piece of meat. 

Here's How to make perfect prime rib every time:


  • 1 (4 pound) prime rib roast
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Herbes de Provence
  • kosher salt to taste


Place prime rib roast plate at room temperature for 2 to 4 hours.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).

Combine butter, pepper, and herbes de Provence in a bowl; mix until well blended. Spread the butter mixture evenly over the entire roast.

Season roast generously with kosher salt.

Roast the 4-pound roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. (If the roast is larger or smaller than 4 pounds, see footnote to calculate cooking time.)

Turn the oven off and leave the roast in the oven with the door closed for 2 hours. Remove the roast from the oven, slice, and serve.
