Author:Adapted from Bobby Flay
Prep Time:35 minutes
Cook Time:2 hours
Total Time:2 hours 35 minutes
1 bone-in prime rib (6 to 7 pounds)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups red wine
4 cups beef stock
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
Thirty minutes before roasting the prime rib, remove from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Season liberally with the salt and freshly ground pepper.
Place on a rack set inside a roasting pan and roast for about 2 hours until medium-rare, or until a thermometer inserted into the center of the meat registers 135 degrees F.
Remove the meat to a platter, and tent with foil to keep warm.
Let meat rest at least 20 minutes or until the very center has reached 120°F before slicing.*
Place the roasting pan on top of the stove over 2 burners set on high heat. Add the wine to the pan drippings in the pan and cook over high heat until reduced, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
Add the stock and cook until reduced by half.
Whisk in the thyme and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
