  • 6 lbs. Standing Rib Roast ½ pound/person
  • ¼ cup Beef Tallow Softened
  • 1 Tbsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Herbs de Provence
  • Kosher Salt


  • Take the standing rib roast out of the refrigerator and place it in the roasting pan. Let it come to temperature (about 30 minutes). Pre-heat an oven to 450 degrees.
  • Combine beef tallow, pepper, and herbes de Provence in a bowl; mix until well blended. Spread butter mixture evenly over the entire roast. Season roast generously with kosher salt.
  • Roast 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 350º and cook 1 hour 30 minutes more for medium-rare. (Plan on about 15 minutes per pound.)
  • Remove roast from oven and let rest 20 minutes.
  • To serve, slice along ribs to remove them, then separate each rib and put them aside. Slice the roast crossways against the grain. Serve on a platter with the ribs.
