Garlic and Herb Prime Rib ingredients

Butter Spread

The star of this dish is the butter glaze that will cover the entire roast on the outside to create that flavorful bark but also used on the inside for some extra flavor.

In a mixing bowl, add 2 sticks of soft room temperature butter, fresh parsley, thyme, rosemary, minced garlic and salt. Blend the ingredients together using a fork and set aside.

How to prepare the Prime Rib Roast.

Butter between the ribs and roast

Butcher twine tie prime rib

For this recipe, I went with a bone-in prime roast. The ribs add additional flavor to the dish. This Swift Meats prime rib already came in a convenient net holding the ribs and meat together.  I decided to remove this net to add a generous layer of the homemade butter spread between the ribs and meat.  Next, I tied the whole piece together with butchers twine to hold it together during the cook.

Garlic and herb butter covered prime rib

For the final step, I melted the remaining butter spread to a thick liquid consistency.  This made it easier to cover the entire outer prime rib.  Leave it on to harden, putting it in the ridge for a few minutes or outside like I did as it was colder.  The garlic and herb butter will harden and create a beautiful coat around the roast.

How to grill the perfect garlic and herb prime rib

Preheat the grill to 275 degrees and set it for indirect heat. Depending on the size of your roast, the total grill process will take 2-3 hours.  Once the internal temperature reaches 115 degrees, it’s time to remove from the grill. At this internal temperature, the prime rib will be perfectly cooked to a medium rare which is ideal for this cut of meat.  If you cook any longer, the meat will be tough and chewy.  A medium rare will have the succulent red middle and slightly more done outer parts for those that prefer more cooked meat. Trust me!

Perfectly cooked prime rib

Let it rest for 10-15 minutes allowing the juices to redistribute throughout the prime rib.

Carve into that beautiful and flavor garlic and herb prime rib, serve and enjoy!
