  • One 9- to 10-pound prime rib roast
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup multicolor whole peppercorns
  • 1 guajillo chile, stemmed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 cups low-sodium beef broth

How to make this recipe

  1. Season the roast with the salt and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

  2. In a spice grinder, grind the peppercorns, guajillo chile and rosemary until coarse. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the broth and mix well.

  3. Preheat the oven to 400°. Rub the pepper mix all over the roast. Place the roast on a rack set over a roasting pan. Add 2 cups of the broth to the pan and roast for 30 minutes, until the meat is well browned. Add 2 more cups of the broth and loosely tent the roast with foil. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°. Roast for about 2 1/2 hours, until an instant-read thermometer registers 115°; add the remaining 2 cups of broth halfway through. Set the roast on a cutting board to rest for about 30 minutes (the center of the roast will register at 125° for medium rare).

  4. Strain the pan juices into a small saucepan. Skim off as much fat as possible and bring to a simmer. Carve the roast and serve with the pan jus.
