Salt Baked Prime Rib Roast

Ingredients

4 pound bone-in prime rib roast
2 cups coarse kosher salt (important that it is coarse, not fine!)
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 210 degrees F
2
Cover the bottom of a roasting pan with a thin layer of coarse kosher salt. Place the roast, bone side down, on the salt and season well with freshly ground black pepper.
3
Cover roast with remaining salt. Don't worry if the entire roast is not completely covered.
4
Roast in preheated oven for 4 hours, or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 145 degrees F.
5
Remove from oven and let rest for 30 minutes to allow juices to set. Remove roast from salt; carve and serve.
