Perfect Prime Rib: Fred Simon’s Rib Roast Dubarry


This classic prime rib roast recipe is a favorite of the Simon family, 5th generation family owners of Omaha Steaks. Rib Roast Dubarry has a smooth, rich, velvety flavor and every slice of beef is incredibly tender and juicy. This is a perfect recipe for a special occasion or holiday dinner the whole family will love.

Prepping the prime rib

The secret to an incredible roast is starting with aged-to-perfection, butcher-trimmed prime rib. Our prime ribs are hand-selected and trimmed by master butchers and aged 28+ days for maximum tenderness.

To get the rich, velvety flavors, marinate a completely thawed 4 lb bone-in prime rib roast in red wine, olive oil, garlic, mustard, and bay leaf for 5-12 hours. Turn occasionally to allow the flavors to fully immerse your roast in the marinade.

Cooking the prime rib

This recipe uses the sear and slow-roast method. The sear is important, because it gives the roast a nice crust and adds flavor. Before searing, pat the prime rib dry and lightly season with salt and pepper. Sear in a preheated skillet just 2-3 minutes per side or until well browned.

Next, preheat the oven to 250°F. On a baking rack, add aromatics, then place your prime rib bone side down and bake to your desired doneness using our roast cooking chart and guidelines below.

  • Rare 120-130 °F
  • Medium rare 130-140 °F
  • Medium 140-150 °F
  • Well done 160-170 °F

Remove your roast and let it rest 15-20 minutes under tented foil to allow the juices to redistribute. This will give you an incredibly tender and juicy prime rib in every bite. Use the remaining juice in the baking pan to whip up a rich sauce while your roast is resting. Serve with classic side dishes and a decadent dessert for an incredible holiday prime rib roast meal.

From our family to yours – Happy Holidays!
