A question about a recipe: Ann Seranne's Rib Roast of Beef

875786c1 6fea 4948 9c7d 5a1c0fe97483  food52 12 13 11 2956

If we are having a large dinner party and doing 7 ribs, have I calculated correctly that 1 hour & 40 minutes (100 minutes total) with the oven on should be about right or do I need to add more time (since 4 ribs is not double the amount of time of 2 ribs based on the time calculation chart)? Thanks a bunch!

Actually, you'd probably be better off cutting the roast in half and roasting the halves at the same time, following the chart for 3 and 4 ribs, respectively. You could stick the 3-rib portion in 10-20 minutes after the 4-rib portion (depending on the weight -- just check the chart). Hope that makes sense!

How did your experiment turn out? I didn't think this recipe was suited to a piece of meat over 12 pounds. If you load up the oven with more than that, you just might have a problem. I think that's why Serrane never gave instruction for this method with such a large roast. That's probably why the instructions cut off at 12 pounds. Pieces of meat that are too small or too large (think about it, there obviously has to be a limit somewhere) this method will simply not work.

And for the same reason, you would not use this method and timing chart to cook a bunch of 8-pound roasts at the same time in the same oven, it just won't work. But the method if used as described, starting with a room temp roast and within the weight range given, for the proper length of time, will give even a novice a beautifully cooked roast, it turns out beautifully browned outside and uniformly pink and juicy all the way through.

My butcher told me years ago to unwrap meat in your refrigerator and let it "dry out" for a day or two before cooking. I don't know why it helps, but it does.

Forgot to mention, my 3 ribs at Christmas took 2 hours to get to 125.
