Rib roast 2 1/2 Pound (1 Rib Of A Standing Rib Roast)
Salad oil/Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
Garlic clove 1 Small , minced or pressed
Baking potatoes 2 Large


Wrap meat well and freeze until solid.

Combine oil and garlic; rub evenly over frozen meat.

Stand roast, rib bone down, on a rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan between the 2 potatoes, placed.

Roast frozen; do not thaw.

Roast, uncovered, in a 400° oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes for rare meat, 1 hour and 25 minutes for medium rare, 1 hour and 35 to 40 minutes for well done.

If you wish, insert a meat thermometer through fat layer into center of roast, not touching bone, after it has cooked for about 1 hour, and continue cooking until meat is done to your liking (130° to 135° for rare).

Let stand for about 5 minutes before carving.
