Herb Crusted Prime Rib

5 lbs roast beef
2 Tbsp Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Garlic 
1 Tbsp Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Basil  
3 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Thyme
4 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp black pepper





Place the roast in a roasting pan with the fatty side up. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, basil,  and water. Allow 2 minutes for rehydration and then add olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Spread the mixture over the fatty layer of the roast, and let the roast sit out until it is at room temperature, no longer than 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Bake the roast for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and continue roasting for an additional 60 to 75 minutes
The internal temperature of the roast should be at 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) for medium rare. Allow the roast to rest for 10 or 15 minutes before carving.
