1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
dried rosemary, crushed
1 (4 pound)
boneless beef rib roast
My kitchen smelled heavenly while this was roasting, and the flavor did not disappoint! We had company over and everybody loved it! The only thing I did a little differently was that I added a little oil to the dry rub and made it a paste. I also found that it took significantly longer than 1 hour 40 minutes to reach the proper internal temperature, but it was worth the wait!
I made this for my in-laws for Christmas Eve dinner. It was fantastic. The only thing I did differently, was coat the outside of the roast with Worstershire Sauce, so the rub had something to stick on.
Absolutely wonderful and as Mina stated in the intro. I sprayed a very light coating of olive oil before applying the rub and let the meat rest about a half hour before putting it in the oven.
This rub was perfect. The rib roast came out tender and juicy. Half of my siblings were dredding the roast, considering that it is usually tough and flavorless, but everyone went back for seconds and said it was delicious!
I gave this 5 stars because it was so easy. To be honest, I used a variety of herbs, because that's what I had in the pantry(Italian mix-rosemary, thyme, oregano) plus garlic salt, paprika, pepper and a dousing of worcestishire, like another reviwer sugested. It came out perfectly and the herb mixture couting the outside was heavenly. I used the same mixture on some new potatos and roasted them while the roast rested...a perfect and easy meal. Thanks a lot for the recipe, I am no longer afraid I'll ruin a good roast!
I made this for Christmas, and everyone enjoyed it. However, with so much cayenne, this is definitely an adult taste. You may wish to adjust for younger people, or those that don't go for spicy foods. The drippings made a fantastic gravy.
The changes,that I made to this recipe is,I rubbed the roast just rosemay,garlic salt,and pepper. Then
slow roasted at 275 degrees,until the
internal temperature reached 120,about
2 hours.It turn out rare all the way
through with no waste
