Ingredients
  • 1/3  cup 
    kosher salt
  • 3   tablespoons 
    dry mustard
  • 4   teaspoons 
    coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1   tablespoon 
    granulated garlic or dried minced garlic, or 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1   tablespoon 
    onion powder
  • 2   teaspoons 
    dried thyme, crushed
  • 2   teaspoons 
    dried oregano, crushed
  • 2   teaspoons 
    ground coriander
  • 2   teaspoons 
    celery seeds
  • 1   tablespoon 
    olive oil
  • 1  4 - 6  pound 
    beef rib roast
Directions
1.
In a small bowl, combine salt, mustard, black pepper, garlic, onion powder, thyme, oregano, coriander and celery seeds. Set aside 1/4 cup. (Transfer the remaining mixture to a small jar. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 3 months. Stir or shake before using.)
2.
Rub oil over meat. Sprinkle the 1/4 cup spice mixture evenly over meat; rub in with your fingers. Make six 1x1/2-inch knife slits into the fat side (the slits allow the seasoning to penetrate into the meat).* Place meat, fat side up, in a large roasting pan. Insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center, being careful that it doesn't touch the bones.
3.
Roast beef in a 350 degrees oven for 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours for medium-rare (135 degrees ) or 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours for medium (150 degrees ).
4.
Transfer meat to a cutting board. Cover with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before carving. (The temperature of the meat will rise 5 to 10 degrees during standing.)
Tip
  • * At this point, you can cover the meat loosely with plastic wrap and chill up to 24 hours before roasting.
