"You will need some very important ingredients and cooking items to be successful with this recipe. 1) a very good roasting pan with raised rack 2) a good meat thermometer (I like the digital kind) 3) good drinking red wine. Not weeks old...I never did finish this Or the crappy wine you got from the neighbor that you dare not I like a heavy spicy wine that you would have on a cold winter night. 4) A nice piece of prime rib roast. I prefer the boneless kind from Costco ***NOTE: Prep 1-2 days ahead of cooking and serving NOTE: since the beef roast weight is not listed, it is not included in the Nutritional Facts feature"

No need for salt Set meat thermometer to meat liking - remember to set temprature rarer than you want - example - if you want medium - cook to medium rare. the roast will keep cooking once removed from heat. Place meat thermometer in center of meat (Thickest place) Pour enough Beef broth to coat bottom of pan - this keeps the juices from burning as they drip into the pan.(continue to add as roast cooks)

If you like wine in recipes you will love this delicious prime rib. I used Montreal steak seasoning for the steak spice and it was a good choice. Next time I may use the addition of onion powder just because I love onion flavor in roasts and it goes so well with the other ingredients you have here.
