Bone-In Rib Roast Recipe
Hands up if you’ve ever felt intimidated by the thought of cooking a large, beautiful piece of beef, such as a bone-in rib roast.
My hand is up, because I used to be intimidated, but now I am intimidated no more! With the help of the free Roast Perfect app created by Certified Angus Beef® Brand, I’m brimming with confidence.
Once you get the hang of roasting beef, it will become your go-to dinner dish. You might be surprised to learn that cooking a beef roast is practically “set it and forget it!”
It’s so simple, in fact, that not only is it perfect for big holiday affairs like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, but it’s a lovely weekend meal when you just feel like throwing something in the oven and then chilling out on the couch (my favorite cooking method).
Using the Roast Perfect app, I was able to view suggested cuts of beef, find a location to buy, calculate cooking times, and get thoroughly tested recipes for roasting.
If apps aren’t your thing, you can also check out the Certified Angus Beef® Brand website to learn about beef cuts for roasting and get roasting instructions, too. Learning how to cook a bone-in rib roast was much easier than I thought it would be. I was even able to look up where to buy Certified Angus Beef®, the highest quality of beef on the market, at local stores and restaurants.
A beef roast makes the perfect centerpiece for all the most memorable meals of the year. Not only are beef roasts easy to prepare, but they taste delicious and look spectacular, too. Pair your roast with a favorite side dish to make your meal complete, then sit back and wait for the compliments to roll in!
Tips for Cooking Bone-In Rib Roast
- In my recipe, I give the roast a good rub with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and salt free steak seasoning, but there is certainly plenty of room to get creative. Check out the Certified Angus Beef® Brand Roast Perfect Pinterest Board for lots of different seasoning ideas.
- No roasting rack? No problem. Crunch up a long piece of aluminum foil into a loose coil and place it in your roasting pan. Voila: instant roasting rack!
- If you have an old-fashioned oven safe meat thermometer, you can actually put it into the meat before you start roasting. Then you don’t have to worry about poking the roast later and letting the juices run out, because the meat will seal around the thermometer as the roast cooks. A quick peek in the oven is all you’ll need to do to check the temperature. Once it reaches 135-140F, the roast is a perfect medium.

Bone-In Rib Roast Recipe
- 8 pounds bone-in rib roast
- Sea salt
- Black pepper
- Salt free steak seasoning
- Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a roasting pan with foil for easy cleanup. Place a rack in the roasting pan. (If you don't have a rack, crunch up a long piece of aluminum foil into a loose coil and place it in the roasting pan.)
- Sprinkle all sides of the roast with sea salt, black pepper, and steak seasoning, pressing the seasonings gently into the roast as you go. If you have an oven-safe meat thermometer, you may insert it into the thickest part of the roast now, before it goes in the oven.
- Place the seasoned roast fatty side up on the roasting rack. Roast for 15 minutes at 425 F.
- Reduce the temperature to 325 F and continue cooking for about 2 hours and 45 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 135-140 F.
- Remove roast from oven and let rest 15 minutes. Slice across the grain to serve.
