Serves about 16.

All you need:

2 tbsp plus 1/4 c. Hy-Vee Select olive oil, divided
1 (4- to 6-pound) prime rib roast
2 tbsp freshly crushed tri-color peppercorns
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp Hawaiian coarse sea salt
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh thyme
2 tbsp herbes de Provence
2 tbsp minced garlic

All you do:

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over high heat. Sear all sides of roast until a golden color appears, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Combine remaining 1/4 cup olive oil with remaining ingredients and mix well. Pat the herb salt mixture all over the seared roast; place roast in a roasting pan on a wire rack. Roast for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 275 degrees and roast for another 30 to 40 minutes. Turn off the oven but allow the roast to remain in the oven, with door shut, for an additional 10 to 15 minutes depending on desired doneness. Remove roast from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
Meat will continue to cook as it rests. Plan on meat increasing about 5 to 10 degrees after removed from oven. A final internal temperature of 125 is medium-rare and 135 degrees is medium, so remove meat from oven accordingly.
