  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit

  3. Paste seasoned butter around rib roast
  4. Season the rib roast heavily with sea salt, so that a crust forms
  5. Crush the bulb of garlic and put into baking dish
  6. Place the beef over the garlic cloves and into the oven
  7. Bake at 500 degrees for 25 minutes
  8. Decrease the oven to 200 degrees and bake for 2 – 3 hours

  10. Leave about a tablespoon of fat in roasting dish
  11. Put roasting dish on medium heat and add flour

*I prefer the gravy to be a thinner consistency because it pairs with the Prime Rib better
