Thyme-Scented Rib Roast

Serves 8 to 10
Time 2 hr 10 min
We know it'll be tough, but try to be patient! Allowing this roast to rest before carving is an important step. It allows the meat to continue cooking for a few more minutes, taking it to just the right doneness, and ensures the perfect juiciness, too.
Ingredients
  • 1 (5- to 6-pound) boneless beef rib roast
  • 1 tablespoon canola or peanut oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped thyme
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt, plus more as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more as needed

Method

Preheat oven to 475°F.

Arrange roast in a 13x9-inch roasting pan and rub all over with oil, then thyme.

Season generously with salt and pepper; roast for 30 minutes.

Remove roast from oven and use a bulb baster to skim most of the fat from the pan.

Baste beef with fat remaining in pan.

Reduce oven temperature to 375°F and continue roasting for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours more, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meat registers 115°F. (Meat will continue to cook while standing, reaching about 130°F for medium rare.)

Transfer roast to a platter and reserve pan juices, if desired. Let roast stand for 25 minutes, then carve.
