An impressive roast for holiday parties and other special occasions. Coat with a seasoning rub and roast slowly for tender flavorful meat.


Serves: 16

2 tablespoons McCormick® Basil Leaves

2 tablespoons McCormick® Oregano Leaves

1 tablespoon McCormick® Garlic Powder

2 teaspoons McCormick® Onion Powder

1 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper, Ground

1 boneless beef rib roast, 5 to 6 pounds

2 tablespoons oil

1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix first 5 ingredients in small bowl. Set aside. Trim excess fat from top of beef, leaving a layer of fat about 1/4-inch thick. Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Brush beef with oil. Sprinkle with salt. Coat with seasoning mixture.

Roast, uncovered, until internal temperature reaches 130°F for medium-rare (1 3/4 to 2 1/4 hours) or 140°F for medium (2 1/4 to 2 3/4 hours). Cover with foil and let stand 15 minutes before carving. (The temperature of the meat will rise about 10 degrees during standing.)
