This premium cut of beef is often reserved for special occasions, but we suggest that you make a place at your table for Niman Ranch's bone-in rib roast no matter what the day of the week.

For best results, marinate beef, covered, overnight and be sure to rest roast for several minutes before slicing.


  • 1 Niman Ranch Rib Roast (approx. 15 lbs.)
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced (approx. 3 to 4 cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup coarse black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon dried Mediterranean oregano
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Step 1: Marinate Roast

Remove the rib roast from package, and pat dry. Mix other ingredients together to combine in a mixing bowl. Liberally cover the rib roast with the savory herb paste on all sides. Marinate in the refrigerator, covered, overnight or at least for 2 hours at room temperature before cooking.

Step 2: Roast in Oven

Place roast on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan, fat side down, and place pan, uncovered, in a 275 F oven for about 2 hours. Flip the roast to fat side up, and cook for an additional 1 hour or until a meat thermometer, placed in the thickest portion of roast, measures 115 to 120 F.

Step 3: Caramelize Crust

Rotate the pan 180 degrees and turn the oven temperature up to 450 F. This final roasting step will help create a caramelized crust, and finish cooking roast to the desired internal temperature. For a nice mid-rare, pull the roast out at between 125 to 130 F, and for mid-well to well, leave in until roast reaches 150 to 155 F. The roast will carry over an additional 5 to 10 degrees while resting.

Step 4: Remove from Oven

Rest for 15 to 25 minutes before slicing.
