What is a Crown Rib Roast?

A beef crown rib roast is made out of a whole ribeye roast, where the meat is removed off the bone and then tied around two cuts of the roast to make a crown. It’s also known as just a crown roast, and it can be ordered in pork, lamb or beef. This roast must be specially ordered at our meat department, to be prepared by one of our Certified Meat Cutters.

How To Order a Crown Rib Roast

To order your crown rib roast, call your local store and order one to be prepared for you. Additionally, if you’re in-store, you can ask one of our Certified Meat Cutters to help you out. 

We offer the crown rib roast in 3 grades: USDA Prime, Choice, and Select.

Preparing Your Crown Rib Roast

When it comes to preparing your roast, our Certified Meat Cutters handle it for you at no extra cost! Watch as Darryl, our Meat Manager, showcases the process of assembling and seasoning the roast.

Before You Cook

Before you begin the cooking process of the crown rib roast, you want to make sure you remove it from the fridge first. The roast will need to sit until it reaches room temperature, this will ensure it cooks evenly.

It’s important to know that cooking time will vary depending on the weight of the roast. For medium rare, we recommend cooking the roast for 14 minutes per pound. For medium well, we recommend cooking for 17 minutes per pound.

Here’s everything you need before you start cooking your roast:

Internal Temperature Range:

  • 125 – Rare
  • 135 – Medium Rare
  • 145 – Medium
  • 150 – Medium Well
  • 160 – Well Done

  2. Let your roast reach room temperature, let it sit out covered for about 20-30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 325.
  4. Insert your meat thermometer in the middle of the roast, ensuring you can still see when it’s in the oven.
  5. Place your roast uncovered in your roasting pan on the center of the rack.
  6. Let your roast cook approximately for 14 minutes per pound. For medium rare, we want our internal temperature to reach 135.

Chef's Tips:

Internal Temperature Range:

  • 125 – Rare
  • 135 – Medium Rare
  • 145 – Medium
  • 150 – Medium Well
  • 160 – Well Done

Make sure you season the ENTIRE prime rib. The whole roast should have seasoning on it. Use remaining seasoning from the pan to cover the top. This makes for a beautiful crust!

There’s no need to cover the roast, cooking it low and slow will ensure it cooks evenly.
