I used this recipie for my New Year's Eve dinner and it was absolutely fabulous! I did a 7lb prime rib roast, roasted it first for 30 min, then cooked it for an additional 1 hr 40 min, rest for 30 min. At first I was quite hesitant cooking a prime rib roast with a rock-salt crust, and which took less time that any of the other recipies I had researched. Since the crust covers the entire roast, you don't see what's happening on the outside. So during the entire cooking time, I was praying to the food God's that I did not mess up on this expensive piece of meat. (Please note, that I am a novice cook, so I don't have the experience yet to know what works or not.) However, once it was done and I removed the crust, it was like a gift sent from heaven! I think that it turned out better than any other rib roast that I had tasted. I followed all the directions and added all the recommended ingredients, with the exception of sticking some garlic cloves into the roast and roasting it initially for 30 min instead of the recommended 20 min (as suggested by some members, thanks guys!) , but other than that, it turned out to be a hit. My brother, who is the biggest food critique, said that this was the best prime rib roast he has ever tasted!
