About this recipe: Be sure and remove the coating before slicing this beef roast. You will be amazed at the juiciness and incredible flavour of the meat.

  • 500g coarse sea salt
  • 1 (2kg) prime rib roasting joint
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt

  1. Preheat oven to 110 C / Gas mark 1/4.
  2. Cover the bottom of a roasting tin with a layer of kosher or coarse sea salt. Place the roast, bone side down, on the salt. Season the meat with the ground black pepper and seasoning salt, then cover completely with kosher salt.
  3. Roast in preheated oven for 4 to 5 hours, or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 63 degrees C.
  4. Remove from oven and let rest for 30 minutes. This sets the juices and makes the roast easier to carve. (Note: Be sure to remove all the salt from the roast before serving.)
