How to make the Perfect Prime Rib

Prime rib is one of the most tender and flavorful cuts of steak if cooked properly. It is from the loin or back muscles of the cow and can officially include only the 6th through the 12th ribs. Therefore, the largest prime rib available is 7 ribs. The traditional rule of thumb is to have about one rib per person but in my experience, a 7 rib roast is enough for at least 10 people. This particular 7 rib roast weighed in at 18 lbs.
