Peppered Herb Rib Roast recipe

Prep: 10 min | Bake: 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 hr | Yield: 12 servings


  • 6 pounds first cut beef rib roast, well trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection Peppercorn Melange, coarsely cracked*
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Italian Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection Sicilian Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Mustard, Ground


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place meat on rack in shallow roasting pan.
  3. Mix seasonings in small bowl. Press evenly into surface of meat.
  4. Roast, uncovered, until internal temperature reaches 135 degrees F for medium-rare (1 3/4 to 2 1/4 hours) or 150 degrees F for medium (2 1/4 to 2 3/4 hours). Cover with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before carving. (The temperature of the meat will rise about 10 degrees during standing.)


* To crack peppercorns: Place peppercorns in resealable plastic bag. Close tightly. Pound with a rolling pin, mallet or heavy skillet until coarsely cracked.

Coarsely cracked Peppercorn Mélange is the key ingredient in the spice rub for this special-occasion beef rib roast. The seasonings flavor the meat and develop a spicy crust. Be sure to allow a 15 minute standing time before carving so the meat temperature will rise and the meat will carve more easily.
