Rib roasts are made for roasting, but you have a choice of methods you can use. To achieve the doneness you want, use a meat thermometer and cook until the internal temperature is 5 to 10 degrees below the desired final temperature. (Instant-read thermometers are also handy for checking this.) For medium rare, the temperature is 145°F (63°C), for medium 160°F (71°C), and for well done 170°F (77°C). When done cooking, remove the roast and let it stand for 15 to 20 minutes before carving. The roast will continue cooking as it stands.
Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Place the roast in a roasting pan, rib side down and fat side up, and insert a meat thermometer so that it does not touch the bone. Roast for 30 minutes, then turn the heat down to 325°F (170°C) and continue to cook until the meat reaches 5 to 10 degrees below the final desired temperature, about 13 to 25 minutes per pound, depending on the size of the roast.
Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Place the roast in a roasting pan, rib side down and fat side up, and insert a meat thermometer so that it does not touch the bone. Roast until the meat reaches 5 to 10 degrees below the desired internal temperature, 20 to 30 minutes per pound (445g), depending on the size of the roast.
