Ended up suddenly having to go fetch dinner provisions yesterday after we thought we were going out of town to visit relatives but due to sudden illness with them, we were waved off.
Found a 2 1/2 pound rib roast...how would you have recommended cooking it? I rubbed it down with garlic, fresh thyme and olive oil and fresh pepper, let it sit at room temp for about 1 hour. Then I seared it in hot cast iron pan and put it in a 400 oven and turned it down to 250 to cook. We were absolutely starving, though so I turned the heat up a little to 275 to cook it faster. Cooked it to 130 on thermometer and let it rest. It was pretty good (am not a big red meat eater anymore) but I felt I could have done better with it. Any tips? Thanks!
