Slice several times all the way down the prime rib to score the fat side; watch that you do not slice all the way into the meat. Rub the cut of meat all over with olive oil and season generously all around the meat. You can add plenty of seasoning and this can be done the previous night.
Remove the prime rib from the refrigerator at least 1 hour before cooking and allow the prime rib to warm up room temperature ready for the oven.
Next you must set the oven to 460-490 degrees. Roast the rib for about 20 minutes with the fan on high. Then, set oven on broil setting and continue cooking for another 8 minutes. Reduce temperature to 320 degrees. Continue to roast the prime rib in the oven for another hour and 25 minutes.
Check the meat temperature and remove from oven when you reach about 115-120 degrees. You may find hat more time is needed depending on your oven type. The reality is that A 14-pounder can take over 3 hours in the oven at 325 degrees. Let rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour before carving up.
Adjust cooking times depending on your oven and how you like the cut.
