Perfect Prime Rib

Adapted this recipe from Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib

This recipe cooks prime rib PERFECTLY to a medium rare! Mine was a little rare so I might add 1-2 mins to my cooking time in the future to adjust for this. It really is dependent on your oven. Otherwise, this cooking technique is spot on! My beef was a little chewy so make sure you slice your prime rib into thin slices :)
