Growing up it was on Sundays we would enjoy a Roast Beef. As an adult, I make these on longer weekends during the cooler months. There is just something about having a marvellous hearty roast to serve for dinner. These are actually quite uncomplicated to make. Often I have put these in a crock pot, but there is something about a slow roasted roast beef that is so hard to resist.


Standing rib roast 4 Pound
Kosher salt To Taste
Cracked pepper To Taste



1. Preheat the oven to 325F.

2. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over the meat, make sure to season all sides of meat, cover and allow to rest in refrigerator for about 1 to 2 days.


3. Place the meat on a wire rack, over a baking pan, and roast in the oven for about 3 to 3 ½ hours, depending on the temperature of the a oven.

4. Remove the meat from the oven and let it rest for 30 minutes, on a chopping board.


5. Cut the meat in slices of desired thickness and serve.


You can trim off the excess fat from the meat before seasoning it.

If you wish, make ½” deep cuts on the meat in diamond shape, sprinkle and rub with seasoning and stud a clove in each diamond.
