Boneless Prime Rib
Tender, flavorful, and easy-to-make, boneless prime rib recipes make the perfect holiday centerpiece. Christmas dinner wouldn’t be the same without this incredible rib roast recipe!

What is a Prime Rib?
Prime rib is one of the most tender beef cuts you will ever taste. It melts in your mouth and is so delicious.
Bone-in and boneless rib roasts are both cut from the rib area. It comes from the same section as ribeye steak but is left as a larger piece of meat.
Prime Rib is considered the king of roasts since it has the perfect combination of flavor, marbling, and tenderness.
Boneless Prime Rib Roast Ingredients
- boneless prime rib roast
- Kosher salt
- black pepper
You’ll need just a few simple ingredients to make homemade au jus. Follow our au jus recipe for ingredients and instructions!
How to Cook Boneless Prime Rib
- Preheat the oven to 450°F. Pat your room-temperature boneless prime rib dry using paper towels, then rub it all over with a generous amount of salt and pepper. You want to give it a good coating!
- Place the roast on a pan with a roasting rack, fat-side up.
- Add it to the oven and cook for 15 minutes at 450°F.
- After 15 minutes, reduce the temperature to 325°F. Cook for an additional 1 hour and 40 minutes (check the exact time for your level of doneness using the Roast Perfect App).
- Once the beef is done cooking, remove it from the oven and transfer it to a cutting board.
- Loosely tent the beef with foil for 15 minutes, then carve it against the grain. Always carve against the grain for best results.
- Serve with au jus or garlic butter, and enjoy!
Perfectly done. My family was very impressed!Debbie
Prime Rib Recipe Tips
- Cook the perfect roast every time by getting the Roast Perfect App. Trust me, I use it all of the time for my roast recipes and highly recommend it. It makes everything easier!
- Always use a meat thermometer. This eliminates any guesswork and makes it easy to cook the perfect roast every time. Refer to the degree of doneness chart above to find your preferred temperature.
- Always allow the roast to come to room temperature before cooking it; this will ensure it cooks evenly.
- Always use a roasting pan with a rack for even cooking. A rack allows heat to circulate all around the roast.
- Let the prime rib rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing. This seals the juices in and will give you a more tender, juicier portion.
TIP—Take your roast out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking it to allow it to come to room temperature. This ensures that it will cook evenly throughout.
Prime Rib Temperature
The USDA recommends roast beef cooking temp be a minimum of 145°F.
|Beef Doneness||Internal Temperature|
|Rare beef temp||125°F – bright red in the middle|
|Medium-rare roast||135°F – warm red in the middle with slight pink around the edges|
|Medium roast||145°F – warm pink throughout|
|Medium-well roast||150°F – slightly pink at the center|
|Well-done roast||160°F – little to no pink throughout|
Follow this step-by-step guide to the desired Prime Rib Temperature Chart.
Finally, when slicing beef, always slice against the grain. The “grain” looks like lines running through the beef. Slicing against it will give you the most tender cuts of beef. This is so important!
Perfect Prime Rib
Cooking a perfect rib roast starts with picking the best beef at the store. Always look for a prime rib that has plenty of marbling. Those little pockets of fat add so much flavor!
Prime Rib Recipes FAQs
Store leftovers wrapped in plastic wrap on a plate or in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days. Drizzle a little bit of our au jus over the top before storing it to keep the beef moist.

Debbie, thank you so much! This is such a delicious dish and we deserve to have it for weekday supper now and then 😉
Your recipe says to bring roast to room temp before cooking. But the app you recommend says NOT to bring to room temp. I’m guessing this changes timing…confused on which to do. Hate to do the wrong thing on an expensive piece of meat!
Em Beitel says
Hi Kirsten! Sorry for the confusion. I definitely recommend bringing it to room temp first. This will ensure the roast cooks evenly throughout.
