Cooking a prime rib roast can be confusing, but one easy method is to crank up your oven to 500 degrees and let it roast for a short period of time. The result is a perfectly seared outside and a medium-rare inside without the need to change temperatures or watch the meat closely while it cooks.
Round the resulting number to the nearest whole number. The rib is cooked at 500 degrees F for exactly that many minutes. For example, for a 6 pound roast: 6x5=30, so cooking time is 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and wait 2 hours before opening the oven door. Remove the prime rib and slice into the most perfectly medium-rare meat you've ever seen.
