Mom's Prime Rib
3-rib standing rib roast (varies from 4 to 7 pounds)
3 garlic cloves, slivered
2 lemons, juiced
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place roast fat side up in shallow roasting pan (do not place on wire rack). Make deep slits about 1½-
inches apart all over meaty portion of roast. Insert a garlic sliver deep into each slit (may need to sliver
more garlic, but that’s not a bad thing). “Spread out” each slit and add a little lemon juice to the slits then
bake uncovered for 1 hour. Reduce oven to 325 degrees and bake until internal temperature reaches 140
degrees for rare, 150 degrees for medium-rare, or 160 degrees for medium.
