  • enough butter to smear over entire roast
  • sea salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 4 pound boneless ribeye roast


  • Preheat an oven to 500 degrees F.
  • Rub butter all over roast and season meat with salt, black pepper, and garlic.
  • Place roast, fat-side up, in a roasting pan.
  • Roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, reduce heat to 325 degrees F and continue cooking until roast is reddish-pink and juicy in the center, approximately 60 minutes. Time will really depend on size and thickness of the ribeye.
  • An instant-read thermometer is a must. When inserted into the center of the roast, it should read 130-135°F for medium-rare.
  • When thermometer registers 130-135°F, remove it from the oven
  • Transfer roast to cutting board; loosely tent with foil and let rest 15 minutes. Slice roast across the grain
