Arrange the asparagus on a baking sheet, put cubes of butter and minced garlic on top of the asparagus then roast for about 15 minutes in the preheated 360 degrees F oven
This is a 5 lb. standing rib roast (3 bones). Bring the rib roast to room temperature before baking. Finely mince medium sized sweet onions, 4 cloves of garlic, parsley and rosemary. Season this w/ Montreal Steak Seasoning. Rub the meat w/ 3 T soften unsalted butter (room temperature), this will not only add flavor, moisture to the meat but this will serve as the paste to the seasoned spices you will be rubbing to the meat as well.
The bones will serve as the rack so i just used a deep casserole pan, i nestled the rib roast on top of the mirepoix and little of beef broth w/c later served as the au jus.
I deliberately left the crust because i like the flavor and see the first slice...i had to taste it! Yum!!! and oh the bones? We gnawed on it w/ gusto! yes, there.. i said it...lol!
See!!! If i can do it you can do it!!! You can make perfect prime rib at home!
