Black Pepper Crusted Prime Rib


1 (3 1/2-pound) beef rib roast, de-boned* and tied

1 jar peeled whole garlic cloves

1 packet Italian dressing mix

about 1 cup cracked black peppercorns

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Rinse the roast and pat dry. Bring roast to room temperature. Stud prime rib with garlic cloves by cutting slits into the meat and placing cloves inside. Rub Italian dressing mix all over roast. Pour black peppercorns into a shallow dish and dredge the roast in the pepper so that it's completely covered. Transfer to a roasting pan lined in aluminum foil.

Place roast in the oven and cook for 2 - 3 hours, depending on how you like it. I cooked mine for 3 hours for medium or 160 degrees. Turn oven off and let meat sit in oven until meat reaches the desired degree of doneness. Let rest for 10 minutes before carving. The drippings make fabulous gravy.
*Cook's note: Have butcher remove ribs from roast and tie it.
