I enjoy cooking, and I’ve been told I’m a really good cook. When I’m no longer a student, I hope to actually have time to cook. In all my years of cooking for my family, one thing has eluded me. A really nice roast, prime rib, specifically. Low and slow? I’ve got that down. Braising? I can manage that too, but to cook a prime rib or a loin so that it’s medium rare but browned on the outside? Nope. It always turns out too well done and dry. So the question is: How do you cook a medium rare prime rib roast? I should point out that my oven is nothing special, and getting a new one is not an option.
