Transcript:How to Make a Standing Rib RoastHi, I'm Norma Jean Darden for About.com I'm the owner of Spoonbread Catering, Miss Mamie and Miss Maude's Restaurants in Harlem. Today were cooking an oven standing beef rib roast recipe with pan gravy. The recipe of Diane Rattray.
Ingredients You Will Need for a Standing Rib Roast:1 standing rib roast, about 5 to 6 pounds
2 to 3 teaspoons salt
1/2 to 1 teaspoon black pepper
Cayenne & coffee to deepen the beef taste
For the Rib Roast Gravy, You'll Need:1/3 cup meat drippings
1/3 cup flour
3 cups water
Salt and pepper, to taste
Mix a Rub to Add Flavor to the Rib RoastI create my own rub, by putting two teaspoons of salt, a teaspoon and a half of pepper. We will going to add a pinch of instant coffee, maybe two pinches, just to deepen our flavor. To give it a "kick" we are going to put a little teaspoon of cayenne. Then we are going to just shake this, and we are going to apply it to our meat.
Roast the Meat Uncovered and Use Drippings for the GravyWe are going to put the meat on a rack, bone side down. We are going to insert the meat thermometer into the fleshiest part of the beef, not near the bone. So, that we can tell when it has reached our desired temperature. Roast uncovered at 300 degrees for about two - two and a half hours.For rare, meat thermometer should reach 135°, and medium rare will be 155°. Remove from oven and let stand, covered loosely with foil, while making gravy.
Pour off fat into a measuring cup. Return 1/3 cup of drippings to the roasting pan. Place roasting pan over low heat. Stir in flour until well blended. Make sure that the flour is well incorporated, and it cooked out, otherwise you get a real pasty taste. Add water, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve gravy with sliced roast beef.
