Boneless rib roast

  • Author: Food Network Kitchen
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 2 hours
  • Total Time: 2 hours 25 minutes
  • Category: Lunch, Dinner
  • Method: roast
  • Cuisine: British


  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons mixed or tri-color peppercorns, coarsely cracked
  • Kosher salt
  • One 7– to 8-pound boneless prime rib roast


  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2/3 cup prepared horseradish, drained
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch fresh chives, coarsely chopped (about 3/4 cup)


  1. For the prime rib: Preheat the oven to 260°C. Put the butter, horseradish, peppercorns and 2 tablespoons salt in a medium bowl and stir until evenly combined. Slather the seasoned butter evenly over the top and sides of the roast (leave the bottom bare) and put on a rack set in a large roasting pan.
    Roast for 35 to 40 minutes (5 minutes per pound), then turn the oven off and let the roast sit inside the oven for 1 1/2 hours (do not open the oven door during this time). It should be dark golden brown on the outside and medium rare on the inside.
  2. For the sauce: Whisk the sour cream, horseradish, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper together in a medium bowl until well combined. Stir in the chives, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Cut the roast into 1-inch-thick slices and serve with the sauce.


To help plan your meal, decide what time you want to serve the meal and count back about 2 hours -that’s when the roast should go into the oven.
