Coffee and Vanilla Bean Prime Roast
Serves: 10 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
- 1 (12lb) bone-in prime rib roast (about 5 ribs)
- ⅓ cup finely ground coffee
- ¼ vanilla bean
- 2 tablespoons sea salt
- 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

How to Make Paleo Prime Roast
The preparation for this recipe is incredibly easy. It takes only 10 minutes to prep, and the oven does the rest of the work.
Preheat your oven to a sizzling 450°F.
In a mixing bowl, combine together finely ground coffee, vanilla bean seeds, sea salt and black pepper to make a flavorful rub.
Take the prime rib roast and place it in a roasting pan, with the fatty side facing up. Generously coat the roast with the coffee and vanilla rub, focusing on the fatty part.
Allow the roast to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to permeate the meat. Then, place the roast in the oven and allow it to cook for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 325°F.
For a medium-rare roast, continue to cook for 2 ½ hours or until the center of the roast reaches 125°F. If your roast is larger, or smaller, remember that it takes around 15 minutes per pound to reach 125°F internally.
Once the roast is cooked to your preferred doneness, remove the roast from the oven and let it rest for at least 20 minutes before carving. Scrape off any excess coffee rub before serving.
