La Cucina di Kat: Garlic Encrusted Rib Roast
This is a really nice way to prepare a rib roast. I know it sounds like a lot of Garlic but it really isn't overpowering when it's finished roasting. For this recipe I used an 8lb - 4 rib roast which would easilly feed 8-10. Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to get things on the table I didn't have a chance to take a photo of the finished product. It was beautiful though and the crust is delicious! Use a meat thermometer as temperatures vary in ovens!
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Put the roast in for 20 minutes at 500 and then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees and continue roasting for an additional hour and 30 minutes. For medium rare the internal temperature of the roast should be at 145 degrees. Keep an eye on your temperature probe and adjust your time accordingly depending on the size of your roast, etc..
