Most bone-in ribeye roast recipes are for medium to medium-rare steaks. This roast recipe results in well-done meat falling off the bone tender.


  • About 7 lbs (3 kg) of bone-in ribeye roast or prime rib roast
  • 2 tomatoes cut in half
  • 2 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 2 potatoes peeled and sliced
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 garlic head cut in half

Prime Rib or Bone-In Ribeye Marinade

  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons of sea salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh black pepper or to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme (or 1 tbsp dried thyme)
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary (or 1 tbsp dried rosemary)
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed


Prepare Bone-In Ribeye

  1. Place the bone-in ribeye on a baking pan.
  2. Roast in the oven at 450 ℉ (or 230 ℃) for 7 minutes on the top and 7 minutes on the bottom, or until the outer layer of the meat is caramelized.
  3. Remove from the oven and put roast aside.
  4. Mix softened butter, honey, olive oil, chopped thyme, chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  5. Lather the ribeye with the marinade.
  6. Add the potatoes, carrots, and onions to the bottom of the pan. Add the garlic head and tomatoes. Put the bone-in ribeye roast on top of the veggies Add about 1/2 cup of water onto the pan. Cover the ribeye with foil very tightly (I cover the pan with 4 or 5 layers of foil). The foil keeps the moisture from escaping.

Cook Bone-In Ribeye Roast

  1. Put ribeye in 375 ℉ (190 ℃) oven. 
  2. Check on the roast at the 3-hour mark. Baste the juices onto the top of the meat. If the pan is low on liquid, add 1/2 a cup.
  3. Cook a 7 lb (3 kg) roast for about 4 hours. Add 15 minutes for every additional lb (or 0.5 kg).
  4. The bone-in ribeye is ready to be removed from the oven when the meat is tender.


  • If you have an oven bag large enough, you can place the ribeye roast inside it. Seal off the oven bag, and put foil on top. This creates a vacuum and locks the moisture inside.
