  • 6.5 pounds bone-in ribeye roast thaw and bring to room temperature
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or butter


  • Thaw frozen bone-in ribeye roast in fridge. Remove from refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for an hour.
  • Season generously all sides of ribeye roast with salt and pepper.
  • Pre-heat oven at 450 degrees F. Sear bone-in ribeye roast for 20 minutes to brown and caramelize the surrounding area for a flavorful juicy meat.
  • After 20 minutes, slow cook ribeye roast at 300 degrees F. Use a thermometer to check for doneness.
  • For rare bone-in ribeye roast, cook for 3 hours with internal temperature of 120 degrees F.
  • For medium to medium-well bone-in ribeye roast, cook for 4 hours. Internal temperature should reach between 135 - 145 degrees F.
  • For well-done bone-in ribeye roast, after 4 hours cover the ribeye roast with a heavy duty foil. Continue baking for another 1 ½ to 2 hours, depending on how well-done you like it and internal temperature should reach 160 degrees F.
  • Remove from oven and let it rest for 10 minutes. Cover ribeye roast with heavy duty foil, if not covered.
  • This is ready to serve. If you prefer a crustier caramelize exterior place it on a cast iron or pan.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil or butter with 2 tablespoons of ribeye dripping over medium to high heat. Sear or brown for a minute or two to caramelize meat.
  • Serve with your favorite sauce and a side of veggies. Enjoy!


As an experiment, I placed a baking sheet at the top rack above the ribeye roast to slow down cooking of top of roast. This is optional.
