The best Braai Prime Rib Recipe

  • Prime Rib: I like to get a cut that is bone-in and tied.
  • Butter
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Thyme, Oregano and Fresh Rosemary: I like to use freshly chopped herbs to make the flavor taste top notch!
  • Salt and Pepper 


  1. Prepare the Meat: Remove the meat from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before to bring it to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 220c degrees.
  2. Mix Together Garlic Butter Herb Sauce : In a small bowl mix butter, garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper. Then, rub all of the butter on the outside of your prime rib and place in a roasting pan or large skillet with the fat side up.
  3. Cook Prime Rib: Cook for 15 minutes and reduce the temperature to 220 degrees. It is about 15 minutes per pound of meat. Bake until it reaches an internal temperature of 80 degrees.
  4. Let the Meat Rest: Remove from oven and let it rest with foil for at least 20 minutes. The temperature will rise to 90 degrees for a medium rare prime rib.
