HEB Roasted Garlic and Salt Crust Prime Rib

Make the perfect roast for the holidays

Roasted Garlic and Salt Crusted Prime Rib

Prep Time: 480 Min.    Cook Time: 120 Min.



  • 1 1/2 cup(s) garlic cloves
  • 2 cup(s) olive oil
  • 1/4 cup(s) kosher salt
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped fine
  • 7 lb bone-in prime rib roast
  • 6 large carrots
  • 6 medium celery stalks



  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • In a small sauce pot add garlic cloves and olive oil and place over low heat. Cook garlic for 45 minutes to 1 hour never letting the oil get higher than a bare simmer. This will keep olive oil from burning and allow garlic to cook gently. Turn oil off when garlic reaches a light brown color and is soft.
  • Once garlic is cooked and completely cooled, scoop out with a slotted spoon (reserve olive oil for future use). Place garlic, salt, pepper and thyme into a food processor and pulse until it forms a smooth paste.
  • Rub roast completely with garlic paste. In a roasting pan place carrots and celery down as a rack and place seasoned roast on top of vegetables.
  • Place roast into oven and roast for 2 - 2 1/2 hours or until internal temperature reads 135°F.
  • Remove from oven and allow to rest for at least 20 minutes before carving. Pour pan juices over each slice for extra flavor.
