The Perfect Ribeye Roast
A Boneless Ribeye Roast is just the bulk of a Prime Rib with out ribs. So, what’s left? You got it, steak and it’s the easiest thing in the world to prepare. Olive Oil, Kosher Salt and Black Pepper is all you’re going to need to make a perfect roast but there’s a few other tricks up my sleeve you might consider before abandoning this article and just trying it out on your own, first.
Aged Ribeye Roast
If you’ve ever had an aged steak, you probably paid top dollar and it was worth every penny, right? Well, I can’t afford top dollar steaks but I want top dollar results. So, I picked up this little electric smoker to add some amazing flavor and texture to my roast. The results are tremendous. This tiny thing isn’t design to cook a roast this size but just a few hours of smoke makes a world of difference. The added flavor is unbelievable and it gives the outside of the Ribeye Roast a texture very similar to aged beef. Just look at the color difference, between the before and after pics, of the meat.
Ribeye Roast Sear
Most folks cook their Ribeye Roast twice at two different temperatures. A higher temp for a shorter period of time first, to get the color, and lower temp at length for the cooking of the entire roast. An alternative, however, is a quick pan sear. You only need a minute on each side and then you’re ready to roast in the oven, slow and low.
There are a few more ingredients that you might want to consider before putting it in the oven, though, especially around the holidays. Try adding some chopped garlic and some rosemary or thyme to the top of the roast and just spread it out evenly. Also, if you are cooking a Boneless Ribeye Roast, be sure use a roasting pan with a rack so the bottom doesn’t get soggy.

Boneless Ribeye Roast Time & Temp
I cook my Ribeye Roast at a lower temperature, in my video tutorial, than what is shown here in the chart. It’s only a 25 degree difference but I believe in the slow and low method to achieve tender results. I also use a thermometer instead of guessing the amount of time. This way, hitting my core temp, I can ensure a perfect roast every time. So, it’s something that you might want to consider but here’s a chart for you none the less.
