Prime Rib Ingredients

1 bone-in beef rib roast (4 to 6 pounds)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 to 2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper

Horseradish Sauce Ingredients

1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
3 to 4 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


Preheat oven to 450°F (232°C). Brush roast with oil; rub with pepper. Place roast, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes.

Reduce heat to 325°F (163°C). Bake for 2 3/4 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°F (63°C); medium, 160°F (71°C); well-done, 170°F (77°C), basting with pan drippings every 30 minutes.

Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with beef.
