  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Beef

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Box; (3-pound) coarse kosher
  • -salt
  • 1 1/4 c Water
  • 4 To 6lb well-trimmed beef
  • -ribeye roast; small end
  • 1 tb Oil
  • 2 ts To 3 ts Cracked blk. pepper


Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a shallow roasting pan with heavy-duty aluminum
foil. Combine salt and water; mix well. (Mixture may appear dry but do not
add more water.) In roasting pan, pat 1 1/2 cups salt mixture into
rectangular shape, approximately 1/2 to 1 inch larger than the size of the
roast. Brush the roast with oil; press pepper evenly into surface. Insert
ovenproof meat thermometer into thickest part of roast, not resting in fat;
center roast on salt layer. Starting at the base of the roast, pack
remaining salt mixture onto sides and top of roast to encase roast in salt.
(Some salt may fall off, exposing small areas of the roast; this will not
affect cooking.) Do not add water or cover pan. Roast approximately 1 1/2
to 1 3/4 hours for medium rare, 1 3/4 to 2 hours for medium doneness.
Remove from oven when meat thermometer registers 130 F for medium-rare, 145
F for medium. Remove pan with roast to cooling rack; let stand 10 to 15
minutes. (Internal temperature will continue to rise.) Remove and discard
salt crust from roast, brushing away all salt. Carve roast into 1/2-inch
thick slices. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Note: Salt crust should be slightly
thicker at the base of the roast than at the top. For easier packing of
salt onto vertical surfaces, use one hand to hold the salt crust in place
while using the other hand to pack on additional salt to cover. Salt crust
should be applied to roast just before roasting. A small amount of liquid
may collect in the bottom of the roasting pan during cooking.
