Salt Crusted Prime Rib

Salt Crusted Prime Rib


1 8-10 LB bone in prime rib roast

Dried thyme

Garlic powder

Granulated onion

Ground black pepper

6 cups kosher salt

5 egg whites


  1. In a large mixing bowl whisk egg whites until foamy.
  2. Start adding salt 1 cup at a time until all 6 cups are incorporated into your egg whites. You want to have a snow like consistently with your salt.
  3. Add 1/4 cup if you need to make your salt mixture more pliable.
  4. Season your prime rib generously with thyme, garlic powder, granulated onion and black pepper and set aside.
  5. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet lay down a flat layer of salt large enough for your prime rib to rest on.
  6. Cover your prime rib completely on all sides with your salt mixture and pat down.
  7. Bake on 375 for 2 hours or until your meat thermometer reads 135.
  8. Let your prime rib rest.
  9. With a heavy object crack the salt crust and move to a cutting board for slicing.
