12 Days of Christmas - Garlic Standing Rib Roast

“Ten Lords a-Leaping” – Garlic Standing Rib Roast

This will make the men “leap” for joy!

· 1 (10 pound) standing rib roast
· 5 tablespoons minced garlic
· 2 tablespoons olive oil
· 2 teaspoons salt
· 2 teaspoons pepper
· 2 teaspoon dried thyme

1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
2. Place the roast in a roasting pan with the fatty side up. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Spread the mixture of the fatty layer of the roast and let it sit out until it is room temperature, no longer than one hour.
3. Bake the roast for 20 minutes at 500 degrees, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees. Continue cooking for about 60 to 75 minutes. The internal temperature of the roast should be at 135 degrees for medium rare.
4. Allow the roast to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving so the meat can retain its juices. This will also allow the temperature to rise to about 145 degrees.
