Few things will wow your guests like the sight of a huge prime rib roasting. Chef Timothy Hollingsworth kicks this staple up a knotch with a savory mustard and Herbs De Provence


1 (7 bone) whole bone-in prime rib roast

olive oil, as needed

kosher salt, as needed

coarse ground pepper, as needed

2 cups Dijon Mustard

1-2 Cups Herbs De Provence


Note: this recipe is best if you let it marinate overnight, plan ahead. 

A day before you are ready to cook, prep your prime rib. Trim any excess fat.

Coat the prime rib evenly with olive oil to allow the seasoning to adhere. Season all sides of the roast generously with salt and pepper. 

Next, coat all sides of the roast evenly with a layer of dijon mustard. Coat liberly with the herbs de Provence. This combination is going to help create a nice crust once cooked.

Let sit in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours, uncovered. 

When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325* F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. 

Place the prime rib fat side up, directly on the grill grate or on a sheet tray, and roast for 3 to 3 ½ hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 110* F. Pull the prime rib off the grill and allow to rest for one hour. The internal temperature will continue to rise as it rests, you are looking for a finished temp of 130℉ for medium rare.

After the roast has rested it’s time to carve. Stand the prime rib upright, and using a sharp, thin-bladed carving knife, carve along the bones, following the curvature of the bones as closely as you can until you cut through the base. Next, slice the roast into even slices, about 1” thick, then carve the bones

To carve the bones, stand it upright again and slice along the bones. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
