Honey Herb Marinated Rib Roast

Honey Herb Marinated Rib Roast

I just made this honey herb-marinated Rib Roast for the whole family and it was delicious. I followed the cooking instructions featured on the Today Show. I am glad our oven has one of those built-in thermometers because it reached our desired temperature about an hour and a half ahead of schedule. If you follow these cooking instructions, be sure to monitor your meat. The roast, despite being done early, was delicious. I wrapped it in foil; believe it or not, it was still warm at dinnertime. Phew. This was a huge 7-rib roast. We have big eaters. The average size rib roast is more like three ribs.

How to Make Herb Marinated Rib Roast

  • Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl
  • Whisk until emulsified
  • Rinse and dry roast and cover with marinade
  • Bring roast to room temperature (could take a few hours)

Everyone enjoyed this rib roast marinated in honey and herbs. The honey helped to bring up the beautiful color as the meat roasted. In any case, this size roast was enough for 13 people. However, there were only 10 guests, and one didn't eat meat. I served this dinner with Honey Mustard Roasted Carrots, which went very nicely together.
